    When I am feeling real bad and start feeling sorry for myself, I often think of this. It's true, there are usually people around that are much worse off than you. Hard to believe sometimes, but I see them.

    Do you look at the stars? I like to sit outside and look at the stars, watch airplanes fly over, etc. It calms me. Tonight.....

      Yes! It's so peaceful and comforting. It's so awe-inspiring to see the Milky Way stretching across the sky, and then - to realize you're looking at the cross-section of our galaxy....! I had a telescope a while back, and used it to look at the "super moon" a few years ago - wow!

      Planning to travel in August for the solar eclipse! First time in 26 years that the shadow will cross the U.S. Wow!

      LisaR I love looking at the heavens, the stars, moon and even clouds by day. It is comforting and it reminds me that the creator of heaven and earth holds them in place and He is able to watch over me.

      It is very cloudy and rainy here so I cannot see anything but I hope you can see it and enjoy it for me also.

      When I see airplanes during the day or just their lights by night, I think of the technology it took to build them and keep them in the air. There was a time we did not have that and it reminds me, one day there will be a cure for cancer!!!

    Are you following what is considered a "Cancer Diet"? I try to eat better, but I haven't ever heard of a "cancer diet" until this article

      Not me. I eat what I want and what I like. Unfortunately, those foods aren't necessarily ones that would go onto a cancer diet!

      The article seems to speak against most popular "healthy foods" diets.

      Im an organic kid, plant based, getting back to more raw & living foods. I am reminded over and over as to why I initially made such choices.

      Vegans talk about an inability to obtain consent from an animal for its flesh, its offspring or its issue. I just dont like what they do to animals which are offered for the table. I dont wish to eat chemicals produced by an animal in fear and in pain. As a doctor might say "a slight pinch" or " mild discomfort.

      Maple syrup is mighty fine but little surpasses a light full quality honey. I have recently discovered acacia flower honey and hubba hubba it sure is delicious.

      Variety is inportant.

      You eat what you can when you're in treatment. If you're doing radiation, you need protein. Talk to a nutritionist and ask if they have a special cancer diet, as there really is none. Just eat as healthy as you can and avoid to much processed sugar, fatty food and fast foods.And that is just common sense. I found while going through treatment that I couldn't eat my much love spaghetti, the acid in the tomatoes made me sick. But that all went away after treatment was completed and I can eat it again. You may have a craving, mine was ice cream. I'm not much of an ice cream eater, but ate a lot during treatment. Don't ask me why, I just craved it. Now I'm back to normal and and it once in
      awhile. You want to make sure you keep up on fluids and protein is also good for muscle loss, which is one of the first places we lose. Take care, Judy
