This is my first blog ever 🙂
In December 2016, I was diagnosed with cancer for the second time around. My breast cancer (originally diagnosed in 2014 years ago) has metastasised.
Why write a blog about it? For three reasons…
Soon after the news many of my family and friends contacted me and wanted to visit, to talk to me see how I was doing and to support me.
But I was so distraught and felt so vulnerable that I couldn’t even talk to people on the phone. The most I could manage was text or messenger.
So this blog is to let all of my friends and family know how I am doing… even when I can’t do it in person.
Writing down my thoughts, my experiences gives me an outlet. It’s a lot like therapy.
To share information and my experiences with others also effected by cancer. Whether that be my research into non-mainstream approaches to try to prolong life or knowing you are not alone but others go through similar physical and emotional experiences.
I hope you find it useful in some way.
