Come Away With Me to Poland & Beating Cancer

  1. I loved the part about Poland … I never before realized what a beautiful country it is! But most of all, I loved your honest talk about your cancer, chemo, and hair loss. And I loved seeing my beautiful friend Bee … hair or no hair, you are a beautiful woman and I love you! Get well, my friend! ❀

      1. Awwww … thanks, sweet Bee! Prior to this, I am ashamed to admit, all I knew of Poland was the Warsaw Ghetto uprising and the Gdansk shipyard, and Lech Walesa. And yet, I consider myself a history buff and have most of a degree in International Relations! You’d think I’d be more savvy!

      2. True enough! Yes, I think that as long as we keep learning more about the world in which we live, there is hope for us to eventually learn to live in peace. Perhaps I am wearing rose-coloured glasses, but I still hold out some hope. πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

      3. Thst is the only way to create change. MLK had a dream and I am sure many thought he had rose tinted glasses on. Still his dream changed the US. It will come true. Its not the Hitlers who last because they work with force and not with natural authority and power. The Trumps and Borises of this world will find out eventually πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ

  2. What a lovely post! πŸ™‚
    Regarding the Vavamuffin song you shared, brty briefly, it is about an idealistic dream of world that they have, about the world being more peaceful overall. What a shame there doesn’t seem to be any English translation indeed. But reggae music can be difficult to understand even for natives of a language it is in as there is often so much reggae slang thrown in. And yes, forgot to add that, the muffin part comes from the raggamuffin music style, I’d also wondered for ages why muffin! πŸ˜€
    Sending hugs and positive vibes, I think you’re very brave and strong in dealing with all that cancer and chemo bring with themselves. I guess hair is an essential part of identity for most of us, so that must have been a really difficult change for you to lose yours. I really hope they’ll grow back, and as soon as possible.

    1. Hi Emilia, thanks for the explanation and your kind words. It is tough to lose your hair but it will grow back so I am not as bothered as I feared. Also I seem to be lucky as the other side effects aren’t as bad as I expected. Looks like my use of honey and dates instead of refined sugar helps a lot. I also drink buckets full of water, mint- and green tea. I will keep my nutrition like this afterwards just to make sure. I believe both together (“normal” cancer treatment + nutrition) will have the best effect. I hope I have the chance to go back to Poland and explore more. Such a beautiful country! πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ

      1. It’s good you’re taking such good care of what you eat, I also believe that nutrition is key, or at least one of the possible keys, to deal with conditions like cancer. I’ve always thought all the chemo side effects are awfully scary to deal with so I’m really glad you aren’t badly affected. πŸ™‚

      2. I thought the same but chemotherapy isn’t as aggressive as it used to be its the first week thats unpleasant but its fine afterwards. But it might still change. Who knows πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ
