  1. Thank you for all your good wishes! I had bilateral mastectomy last weekend and have learned that I have 3 types of cancer in my breasts. I've been told I have 2 weeks to make decisions about follow up treatment, so I'm trying to dig into that now and see what I can learn so I can try to make the...
  2. I'm in the process of being diagnosed with breast cancer. A punch biopsy showed cancer in one breast, but no information from the other, worse looking breast.

I am avoiding them (mostly) but feeling the loss of tomatoes and bell peppers even more than wheat. I'm wondering whether this is an outright allergy, another sensitivity or...
  7. I was diagnosed 8 years ago with 'panic attacks' after a brief bout with some sort of episode where it felt like heat exploded in my chest, spread throughout my body, my heart started pounding, I felt nauseous and like I couldn't get my breath. Afterward I was totally drained, weak, and shaky. Each...
