There is nothing good about cancer. It’s cruel and it kills people. 2014 was a little bit shit. I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Inflammatory Breast Cancer. But I’m still here, and for the most part still smiling. Along the way (it wasn’t “a journey” because I barely went anywhere and nobody sold me a ticket) I realised that amongst all the horrible things that were thrown at me – some rather special things happened. So I started to make a list. As I wrote my diary entries during treatment I wasn’t sure I would want to share them…so I posted them after the fact. It’s easier to laugh knowing I’ve survived. I realise that I’ve been lucky, some of the people I’ve met along the way haven’t. My blog was originally intended to be a celebration of some of the things those people taught me. Don’t look if you are easily offended – in recording my thoughts it has never been my intention to upset or offend.
Over time I have written more about the lasting “legacy” of a cancer diagnosis and treatment. My struggles with body confidence, emotional resilience (or lack thereof), and chronic pain.
