My doc wants a biopsy done to make sure it is absolutely the tumor is cancerous. Apparently there is a chance it is not cancerous which doesn’t make sense but I think because it came back bigger means something. I didn’t really understand. I asked my doc if he thought I’m out of remission & the cancer is back. He said yes. Fingers crossed he’s wrong.

Change is a process, not an event.

MOON-CHILD,
hope your PET scan went well. When do you find out anything? Do you need to see your doctor to get the results?

MOON-CHILD,

You're a strong woman ! You've beaten cancer four times, you can beat it again.

I can't give you any advice beyond being kind to yourself as you would to others. NO ONE will fault you for wanting to comfort eat. And if you do eat a little too much, that doesn't make you a bad person or an unhealthy one.

Every single member of spark has had moments where they need to comfort eat. It happens to us all. No one is perfect. You don't have to be perfect to be healthy.

Just take things one day at a time.

Hello MOON-CHILD.

Wishing you all the best with your test results. It is understandable that you have some extra stress and related stress eating being triggered. Like MLAN613 said, your choices of fruit were way better than eating junk food. So you are still making some good choices. Late night itself can be a trigger for people to snack and overeat so getting to sleep earlier can help. Of course, that may not have worked for you last night. Finding other active things to do is a good idea and can help stop you from eating.

Sending virtual hugs and good vibes. Keep in touch to let us know how you are doing.

Well, eating won't change the results you get tomorrow. But maybe it's today. I hope your PET scan goes well.

Truth be told, watermelon isn't a bad choice to stress eat. Peaches too. Unless you are diabetic and need to limit fruits, you did okay. Even if fruit is something you need to limit, it's still a better choice than processed junk carbs like chips.

In the future, what are things you can do to help relieve stress instead of eat? I know it was late but could you have taken a walk outside if you live in a safe area? If not outside, maybe you have an exercise DVD or could plan something on YouTube? Is there a cupboard you could clean out? Laundry to fold? Anything productive to take your mind off the inevitable test and results?

I have my PET Scan tomorrow morning. Seems my cancer has reared it’s ugly head for the 5th time.

All I want to do is eat. Nothing in particular, no craving though I usually end up eating my watermelon. I have none. Right now I just don’t care about anything. I’m afraid to see what my numbers are tomorrow.

It’s 11:30pm. I just ate a sloppy joe. Now peaches. Bring on the carbs!

I know it’s to late to get some advice and kind words but it feel okay to write this down & just be honest.
