I didn’t think I could wrestle up the courage to write on here again. Maybe it’s my way of sharing without having to speak to everyone individually. Many of you know I started this blog back in December 2016 when I was diagnosed with the big C just after I met the love of my life, now my amazing husband. Writing really helped me through the tough stuff and more so with just telling my story, sharing my feelings.
Well go figure I am about to do this all over again. Yes, cancer has knocked at my door again and reminded me that we take soo many things for granted. I’ve had a hunch about this for a few months now and you just learn to trust your instincts, know your body. I had actually never gave it much thought after all my treatment was over in 2017. I was so sure I had the all clear and could just plough on ahead. I did all the things I wanted to do. I made a come back, got fit, got married. I even ended up with a great new job!
So here I am again, this time it feels very different and the treatment is going to be tougher and much more intense I’m told. I’ll elaborate in another post but just wanted everyone to know what is going on, why I may not have been around much. Covid hasn’t helped either lol! We’ve all been at home for the past 2 years with some wee breaks! To make matters worse Nathan and I both got Covid on the 26th of December. That of course ended up delaying this inevitable treatment. Spent the last 2 years dodging Covid and well, it’s done now, and it was not the type of Covid we have traditionally known, thankfully.
There are angels everywhere and just when you need them too. I have had a few come to my rescue in my lifetime. I am one of the lucky ones. The thing with cancer is you are never the same again, ever. You are forever changed both physically and mentally. There are so many with even worse challenges to deal with and I fully appreciate that. So will this make me the new new me?
Much Love x
