Hey I'm getting my pension!

I was dx nearly 6 years ago…never in a million years did I ever think that I’d be here to draw my state pension! But here I am…doing fine…more grandchildren…and working through my bucket list at a fast speed.


It’s such a scary time when you’re first dx and you can’t think too far into the future…you’re too scared to. If you’re anything like me, you think a month or two into the future but that’s it. As you get farther out it gets easier and you plan a few months ahead…and then a year ahead.


So much has changed for me in the last 6 years and I look at things differently…and enjoy things more.


I’ve had a few scares but I’m still here enjoying life…but my hospital bag and my wig are still gathering dust on top of the wardrobe.



Fantastic news Maltomlin:) Congratulations and thank you for posting this inspirational message. Just what I need today.

Your wig and hospital bag can stay gathering dust for many years to come - never to be needed again!
