Juice fasting day 10
Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Yesterday was the big day at the doctor, but unfortunately, he didn't have any news on my biopsy yet. I have to wait until next week to find out. My bf and I took a trip across on the ferry to the mainland and spent the day together. We had anticipated seeking out a juice bar, but in the end we settled for making a large grapefruit, orange juice when we got home.
My thoughts are rattled by the possibility of having cancer, but my family has been dismissive of my fears. It seems so easy for them to assume everything is fine, and in their assurance, I feel my worries, horror, and 'what if's' go unacknowledged. Nobody wants to talk about the possibility, which I guess is something I need to meet head on-while they would rather not think about it.
The end of the juice fast is near-tomorrow I will begin eating solid fruits to prepare for the food and wine festival on Saturday. I've lost 10 pounds so far, but more importantly I feel healthy.
