After the huge debate [in my mind] through the past 2 months or so, I have decided to start this blog.
What caused the trouble? Well, you might want to hear my story out… I’ve recently been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Stage 4B – basically cancer with the lymph system. I went through surgery and now undergoing chemotherapy which may last till May 2014. I have been constantly told that I should write down things incase I experience “chemobrain” – basically people forgets things when they are undergoing chemotherapy. I’ve been adjusting to this new phase in my life – everyone around me is and it’s been a huge challenge for everybody. Now that I’ve “settled” into this life mode, I’d like to start writing and perhaps contribute to the world of food, and let the world know that I can do this.
My family’s been having quite a hard time dealing with my food needs – as cancer patients need to eat organic, where I live restaurants do not cater to this concept very well – far from it. I’ve decided I will need to cook most of my meals. Having cancer does not mean I need to eat bland food with the few exceptions when I went through surgery and certain chemo days (As I am going through chemo, I have been told by my doctor to avoid crowds as the chemo kicks my immunity’s ass temporarily). But on other good days, I am completely normal and would love to go out trying new food.
Let’s see what I can come up with. In the meantime, please follow my blog, and let me hear from you.
