Diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, a rare and aggressive cancer, in March 2012, I spent a year in the company of my friends on Facebook, blogging on a private page. A year after diagnosis I have moved into the world of public blogging, despite ongoing treatment. I was also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2009 and this has complicated my return into the ‘back to normal’ world. In June 2014 I was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer, probably in the lining of the lung. The game is now to manage it as a chronic condition rather than succumbing to the inevitable.
I blog about things that happen to me, things I see/hear and what interests me. Cancer and health are by no means my only topics. As an incredibly nosy person, conversations heard on buses, tubes and in shops are often repeated on these pages. I enjoy photography but fail to upload the results all too often. I also like to write, write and write some more.
I have a husband, 2 brilliant adult children and many, many fantastic friends. I also still have a sense of humour. Please feel free to browse 🙂
