Have just read your wonderful post and can relate to every word, I too struggled through treatment and at the end thought "what if, what now", but 3 months since my last rads life is looking sunnier, I am swimming, walking and slowly establishing a new "normal" which will be a different normal too my life before BC but I am alive and have so much to look forward to, there are days when I am still overwhelmed with emotions but they are getting fewer.
I managed to get on one of the brilliant Moving Forward Courses run by BCC and would advise other ladies to do the same if you can, it was uplifting and supportive, just what I needed after treatment had finished.
Take care all
Thanks Emma, I start treatment tomorrow and wonder what version of me will emerge at the end. So nice to hear life can be normal again so soon after. Xx
This might sound corny, but keep hold of the fact that each step on this journey will make the light at the end of the tunnel that much brighter
Thank you, Emma. I really needed to read something like this. Depressed and low tonight envisaging five months of chemo, and now can see a tiny light glimmering at the end of my tunnel. Bless. X
Your words works as an insiration for many struggling ....there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Wish you a happy life ahead
Do you know that is one of the best and most honest posts I have ever read, I am a couple of months behind you and can totally relate to what you are saying. You think at the time that this is it how can you come through it, but you do, you become stronger, all of a sudden that light is getting brighter and then you are there.
I too am back at work, albeit I work part time hours and really appreciating life and how lucky I have been, bring on all my new adventures, especially my new garden design which is my project this year
Well done lady
Awesome post Emma ! I think it really helps to have this type of post for those who are just diagnosed, or currently going through treatment. We don't have as many of this type of post as I would like to see here; you know when I first rang the helpline a year ago, it was hearing from a woman who was 25 years post treatment that really helped me. Wishing you continued health and happiness.
