I just feel that, as women, we take on guilt too readily for all sorts of things which are out of our control.
This time there is absolutey no need!
Love to all
My consultant said the only reason I have breast cancer is that I have breasts. End of... There doesn't have to be any lifestyle factor, or to have done "anything wrong". It happens. While this might not satisfy those in search of a reason, it was enough for me. I don't need to feel guilty about my 6 months on HRT, or that I don't go to a gym or run because the situation would be the same whatever happened up to the point of diagnosis.
I took some comfort from that
Love, Rose xx
Headlines in paper today" obese much more likely to get cancer" , why do we constantly have to have these kind of articles when so many of us, on here, who have got it,seem to slim, healthy in every other way. take regular exercise, dont smoke, and eat healthily, My friend who has ovarian cancer was exactly the same. You can do all the right things, as many of us have, my only risk i can see was taking HRT for so long, . and still get it. These kind of comments do give a completely unrealistic picture of who gets the disease and who dosent. It definitely is not always lifestyle as many of us can prove. and may stop people not bothering to check on lumps etc, as they think its not going to happen to them cause they dont fit the "type".june
