I thought it was bad before...

But this is a whole new level.  The cleaning lady has finished.  After 6 months of having family/friends and then a DHB paid for cleaning lady I now have to do it myself! I'm not quite sure how that will go :-)

It's actually great.  She has gone because I no longer need her.  I don't need to bleach my light switches every day, or mop my floor every day, or clean my toilet every day (although i think I will - 3 messy males using it warrants a clean every day), or vacuum every day, or hot wash my knickers and socks, or sanitize my hands a thousand times a day, or bleach spray the bench.  I can use any towel I like - the red towels, bathmats, facecloths and hand towels are not reserved just for me and no longer need hot washes. 

No more chemo, no more vit c, no more bloods and trips to town.  No more self-injecting, no more steroids, no more weird weight fluctuations (5kg between morning and night is kind of freaky).  No more hair falling out (I shaved it anyway).  No more steroids. No more chemo. Did I mention that?

Just regular stuff, like fruit and peppermint tea for breakfast, and exercising slowly.  And growing my hairy legs and hairy armpits and (sigh) hairy pubes back.  And I get to go back in or glorious chemical free spa :-)

And lots and lots of gardening.  Seeing life growing from my hands is awesome.  Every year I have my garden, but this time I have gone a bit mad and have seeds and seedlings everywhere, have dug up half a paddock, chopped off half a tree to let light into another bed and have pots/containers/ploybins full of plants and seeds everywhere.  We'll prob run out of water and they'll all die :-) But that's ok because I grew them in the first place.  I don't find gardening peaceful or cathartic (bla bla) - Bastian has a fit when we go there and runs over top of everything, Raife sits on them and Charlie picks it all - it is hard going with the kids.  But I feel like growing fresh new plants myself, that I can then feed to my family is an achievement for me.  There are no pesticides or insecticides.  There is always the occasional cooked up caterpillar, but protein is good!

It is about keeping ourselves well and healthy. And it is so good to be alive and to be part of my wonderful family.

Bring on the rest of my life :-)

  5. Thanks to for his wonderful work, My girlfriend left a week before our vacation to be with another man. I was desperate to get her back when I found dr.marnish. I tried 5 other people to do a spell to get her back and nothing worked. I was still alone. Then I found dr.marnish by accident. I don’t know how I found him, I don’t remember. But, when I first saw the good testimonies about his wonderful work and after reading the Testimonies, I decided I had to try and give it one last shot. After my spells, I got a text from my lover. And we started going back and forth by text, she asked to meet the next day. So we did, and that night we ended up sleeping together, and about a few days after we got back together. anyone who needs help, should email dr.marnish. He is the best.

  6. Cured of TNBC!
    I want to take this time out as a cancer survivor to encourage women out there still suffering from this with my story on how i got a cure. The sad news about it is that i was diagnosed on my 36th birthday in 2008 and with stage 3 TNBC which after i made research was a very aggressive form of cancer at that point i decided and told myself i was going to die and that the end has finally come. All my life i never thought of having breast cancer because i was very active and i worked out at the gym several times every week and my diet was okay. In my search for a cure after 6 years of diagnosis and even after chemo which i did twice spending thousands of dollars but to no avail, until a church member told me all about Dr Aleta a herbal doctor that specializes in treating TNBC, who could help me with a permanent cure, i doubted this at first but i later gave it a try following her methods and instructions. It took 3 months and after it all i felt normal but still went for diagnosis and i was clean today i am proud to say i am a cancer survivor no nodes and i am totally free the new diagnosis confirmed it. Do not die in silence or ignorance because of breast cancer just simply reach her on don't be shy just speak to her today.
