I am a 51-year old psychologist, wife, and a mother. I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma on 5/24/12. Two of the strongest weapons in my coping arsenal have been humor and mindfulness. I also love to cook and invent/adapt recipes. A final weapon in my coping arsenal is been writing this blog, which on average, I update once per week.

On 4/27/17 and 5/5/17 I suffered heart attacks. Right now my working diagnosis is Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD), a rarely diagnosed cause of heart attacks, primarily in women and it is typical for SCAD sufferers to have few or no cardiac risk factors.
