Surgery part 1

Well I don’t know about you, but I was getting tired of the will-they-won’t-they game when it comes to implant surgeries and cancellations. After the last cancellations they said there would be nothing in the foreseeable future. Yay. So I was back onto waiting, and I tried to put it out of my mind. When…

The Lucy Effect

Through the whole cancer thing, we cling to the idea of options. As long as there are options, it’ll be fine. Things don’t necessarily go according to plan, which is something that is terrifying at the time because no one explains to you at the beginning that it’s common, and usually that’s fine, there are…

Friday surgery retraction statement

You know… I probably jinxed it by telling you all it was happening… But I got a call earlier in the week saying they ‘couldn’t find a consultant’ for Friday. I don’t really understand what that means, I thought it was meant to be my surgeon, Mr K who did it. But I guess maybe…

Off we go again…

Hello everyone, I know I’ve been quiet for a bit, it’s been cold, I’ve been busy and my parents have been visiting for a few weeks. I’ve been ticking along as usual, a few things you would probably appreciate an update on. I had my clinic appointment a couple of weeks ago to get my…

International Women’s Day

I realise I’m slightly behind the ball with this, as normal, but I have a few things to say about International Women’s Day. I know this isn’t strictly cancer related, but it is life-with-cancer related (because it’s related to all life!) and my tribe of girls I have found through cancer are just amazing, I…

Talking about cancer…..

You may have already seen, you may not have – Macmillan have recently launched a campaign centred around discussing cancer and moving away from using the standard cliches. They got a whole lot of people together who have/had cancer to read out some common reactions we all tend to get from people and then react…

Well hi!

I’ve got a couple of posts lined up for you but I thought first, since you haven’t heard from me in a while, I should give a quick update. Though to be fair the reason you haven’t heard from me for a while is because I literally have nothing to update you on. Well that’s…

Well… Here we are again…

Well it’s that time of year again, isn’t it. Is it? Really? Like really?! Every year actually is shorter than the last, right? It’s not just me who looks back and wonders where the year has gone…? Though to be fair I suppose a lot has happened to me in the past year. On New…

They say it’s my birthday…

So I turned 31. That’s a thing. I remember when I was a teenager thinking 31 was positively ancient. In fact, I have friends in their twenties and they think 31 is old. ‘Oh but you don’t seem like you’re 31’ they’ll say. What does 31 seem like? I must admit I do tend to…
