I've Got Cancer....How Can I Feel So Good?

It is amazing, but I feel better now than I have in years! I'm not sure why. Perhaps it's because I've changed my diet so drastically; I've become a "pescetarian" (vegetarian, though I will occasionally eat fish/seafood), I've cut all sugar out of my diet, cut out transfats, am eating a "low amylose" diet which is designed to not raise my blood glucose levels, and I'm taking a host of supplements which I'll describe in another entry. My vitamin D levels are hopefully back within the normal range. I had a blood test done on March 13, two weeks ago today, so I should be getting the results back soon as to whether or not my D levels are back up by now. Hopefully supplementing with 2,000 IU's daily and using the vitamin D lamp will prevail.

Sometimes I feel a little guilty that I'm feeling so good! But I know my days are numbered in that regard, and that at some point my lymphoma will "transform" and become aggressive, then it'll be my turn to go the chemo route. Hopefully that time is a long, long way off. It is kind of creepy knowing that I've got an incurable cancer floating around in my body. Sometimes I envy cancer patients that have one type of cancer or another that can just be cut out of the body and they're done with it. No more's all gone. I wonder if they continue to live in fear?
