Well at least you celebrated and will have a good memory for this time next year.
I know I felt the same when I was diagnosed in Sept 2016, I really noticed the colour of the sky and the trees, wanting to take it all in just in case. that was 18 months ago and they were both as colourful.
Thanks Ladybowler. Unfortunately I just had a frozen pizza for tea to celebrate but will make sure I celebrate properly over Easter! 😂. A year ago I wondered if I would ever see the daffodils bloom again, and here they are again all blooming with their beautiful yellow faces and guess what, I intend to see them next year too. Xxx
Congratulations, hopefully you have made some nice memories to take forward.
I remember my first anniversary my boss, who was with me when I was diagnosed arranged a meal out with a few special work friends, it was so lovely that in September this year when I look back to Sept 2017 I will have that lovely memory.
And it is so true there is light at the end of that tunnel
Today it's exactly a year since my diagnosis. I thought I would feel emotional but no, I just feel pleased that I'm alive and well and here to tell the story http://lifeafterlola.blogspot.co.uk/
So, for anyone who is beginning treatment, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Xxx
That's brilliant. Thanks for sharing. Well done!
I have found too that for me exercise has helped me keep my mind together. I aways used to jog prior to being diagnosed and have kept trying to start again but various treatments and surgeries and then recovery time have kept stopping me but I aim to start back again in a few weeks once I have recovered from latest op and I am looking forward to it and hope to be able and fit enough to jog Race for Life in May. I won't be doing marathons though I will be more than happy with a 5k! :).
Hi Emma, great to read such an inspirational post, wishing you well in the marathon, will be thinking about you! Good luck, Kxx
