Another Post I Didn’t Want to Type …

…butI’m doing it. Firstly, I’m still angry with the NHS. When I’ve calmed down I’ll tell you why. *fuming face* Secondly, it’s short and sweet because I find difficult and my eye site is screwy, but during the week, last week i had a number of fits. Fits which led to tests and scans and … Continue reading

The Fight Continues…

I had a moment this evening.  Panicking slightly, rushing between the bathroom and my bedroom.  Trying to do my bra up, wondering what on earth I was going to wear.  Swearing to myself because my bra is getting tighter. Argh. A month ago I was wishing I had bigger boobs.  Now I have them. Yes, … Continue reading

Bowel Cancer. My Symptoms.

The Be Loud Be Clear campaign which Beating Bowel Cancer is running this week got me thinking as well as a few emails and DMs from people.  My symptoms.  What were they?  What made me realise something was wrong?

Not the Best Start to the Week

Yesterday I woke up, from quite possibly the worst night I’ve had in months. The last time I can remember having bad dreams was shortly after diagnosis. I used to dream I was in New York the day of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.  I guess a cancer diagnosis might bring on unusual dreams.  So, I … Continue reading
