Julia mentioned Bernie Siegal and his, I think, very true statement about identifying what it is you want to live for. Well I’ve just been reading Dr. Siegal and he said something else that struck me. He said — “The patient who survives is the patient who asks questions.” It says something about our health care system — I just can’t figure out what. Ha! I mean my doc said when I was released — “Be sure and eat. Good nutritious food.” Should I have asked him why? Sounds like a stupid question yes? Except that just now, after spending the entire day feeling poisoned because nothing seemed appealing to me AT ALL I forced myself to eat some “…good nutritious food..” And now I understand the real why. It gives strength and vitality and totally defeats the feeling of being poisoned. But how would you know that if you had never had experienced the cancer, food does that so naturally that we take it for granted but we lose track of that life long understanding when being bombarded by radio active isotopes and chemo therapy, and how would you know to ask if you hadn’t read Dr. Siegal? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Asking about everything from here on out.
