Aw Didi - sorry to hear that. You must be feeling disappointed. Perhaps another time for you.
Good Luck and Take care,
The fact that you've experienced BC yourself means that you'll be and feel that much more understanding, sympathetic and EMpathetic to other women going through the same. You've been to the same place.
I'll echo what has already been said. I think you are in the greatest position of really being able to empathise with patients - really didn't feel my BCN actually got it at all. The one thing I really didn't like was how she made all my worries/fears/questions seem insignificant and not worth her time, and that other people were suffering a lot more than me - yes, I knew that but still wanted my questions answered!! I think it's fantastic that you are putting yourself forward for such an important role and really hope you get it.xxx
I echo everything Jill has said Didi, I was fortunate to have a lovely BCN , she was only young but had a very reassuring nature which I really needed, it's a bit like with children and dogs, if you don't show fear around them then they won't panic! Thats exactly how I felt, Infact everyone I came across had the don't worry we have got this attitude, All the very best to you and great to hear you are doing well Xx Jo
