Self-care Isn’t Selfish by Donna McDine, Reiki Master Teacher at Energy of Serenity

Self-care Isn’t Selfish by Donna McDine, Reiki Master Teacher at Energy of Serenity


I hope you and your families are well and enjoyed the festivities of Halloween. It is absolutely incredible to me that it is November!


Self-care and listening to my body continues to be at the forefront of my day. Now more so than ever, after my diagnosis of polycythemia vera. My diagnosis was made August 3rd and my hematologist said from the beginning it would be a roller coaster ride. One moment feeling well and then what feels like the next minute not so much. And boy did he nail that on the head.


Always a proponent of keeping a daily food diary I continue to do this and more in-depth. I now include the weather, my exercise, sleeping patterns, and symptoms. At my last doctor visit, November 3rd, my numbers were slightly elevated and after discussing my symptoms I was sent for my next treatment. The doctor stressed to now add the time a symptom occurs and the ending time to my daily diary and to bring to my next doctor appointment. I will also make note of the days I am symptom free. This will assist my medical team in tracking patterns and how polycythemia vera effects me.


I am delighted to share that after my treatment on Friday, November 3rd, I am symptom free and I’m enjoying a glorious day. I am soaking in every moment of feeling like myself and not being hindered by the varying symptoms of polycythemia vera. I may share at a later date the symptoms I experience, for now I want to focus on the positive.


I’d enjoy hearing about your self-care regiment and your plans to celebrate the rapidly approaching holidays. Email me today!
