Hello!

I'm two and a half years on from my cancer diagnosis, and am sharing this blog post on life after cancer.

I am really struggling at the moment with exemestane.

Hello!

I'm nearly a year on from chemo, which sent me hurtling into an overnight menopause.

I'm sharing my menopause post below:

Hello!

I  haven't been on the forum for a while and seem to be having a senior moment, and forgotten how to add a blog link as a comment rather than as a reply to a comment

 

I'm now  a year on from starting chemo, and have enclosed a link to my blog below.

I started a blog to share my experiences and what I have learned.  I am somewhat of a science nerd, so have read a lot on things I could do for myself, alongside my doctors advice, to get healthy.  I started running, as a result.  Gradually working my way off the couch, I am now going to run a marathon.  I will be blogging about my adventures.  My blog is https://pinkribbonrunner.com. Hope you enjoy it.

So cathartic to be open and write about this! Smiley Happy

Hi Everyone!  I'm delighted to see so many people sharing their experiences.  I too have started writing as a mode of therapy, but then I thought, sure why not share it - it might just help someone.

I've just finished a massive fundraiser and am about to return to work, so will be updating my blog soon with some thoughts on that.

Hi Karen
Wishing you all the best with your treatment. The blog is a great way to get it all down on paper, so to speak, and share your journey through this horrid disease with others. xx

Hi all

I'm just starting out on both my journey with cancer and my blogging on the subject. At the moment it's barely there (as a blog) and it's really just a way for me to lay out what I'm thinking/feeling and hopefully help friends/family understand what this is like.

For anyone who's interested it is at: https://atozeeofbc.home.blog

I'll be having a look through everyone else's blogs too to see how everyone tackles the subject.

All the best

Hello All,

 

Here’s my blog link: Jojo’s Journey

 

I’ve been writing it since 2012 when I was diagnosed with my primary aged just 28. Last year I was diagnosed with secondaries and so have been blogging again. It’s all about my journey through breast cancer.

 

I'm very proud that it has had 215,500 pageviews! Smiley Happy This post alone about Top Tips for Coping with Chemo has had 16,000 pageviews!

 

Lots of love over to all,

Jo x

Hey Everyone, I started my blog when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. I originally started writing it as a way to update my friends and family on my treatment and how I was doing without sending lots of texts and making lots of phone calls. I actually really enjoyed writing it and found it very therapeutic.

www.canistilldrinkwine.com

It’s a random title for a blog I know! There where a lot of headlines in the media at the time I was diagnosed suggesting that bacon, alcohol, red meats etc caused cancer. So one of the first things I asked the oncologist when I was diagnosed was ‘can I still drink wine?’ The answer was, of course, yes and that I probably needed a large one 😉

Hi Bex,

 

I've been reading your brilliant blog, and was hoping to include it in BECCA, our app that helps women move forward after breast cancer.

BECCA has hints and tips on adapting to life after treatment ends, with 'flashcards' that link to different websites. Our blogs section is by far our most popular, and this is where we'd like to link to your article. It can be so valuable reading other people's experiences, and I think that people would find your story very helpful.

If you're interested in contributing to BECCA or have any questions about the app, please don't hesitate to get in touch by emailing becca@breastcancercare.org.uk. I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Kindest regards,

Berna

Hi

 

I've written a blog for years, so there's now a category for cancer (one of those things we all hoped we'd never have to say): http://drbexl.co.uk/category/cancer/

I started writing my blog in January this year when I agreed to restart on Zoladex, thus entering my third chemical menopause https://oncetwice3times.wordpress.com

Hi All

As someone new to the journey of breast cancer & how to handle the diagnosis & subsequent treatment, I thought writing a blog would help to come to terms with what was happening
If you have a spare 2 minutes, please give it a read

Hi all

 

I started my blog after someone suggested it to me because I was getting so many messages and phone calls from friends and family asking how I was getting on and I was struggling to reply.  It's at 1lumpor2site.wordpress.com if you'd like to read it.  I found it really helpful to me personally to get my thoughts down somewhere and I've re-read bits back since, which has been quite strange but great to see how far I've come since then.  People also commented on it and seemed to really enjoy it.

 

Best wishes to everyone.

Hi All,

 

I always loved to write and make people laugh but never thought this is the way I'd be doing it or that my experience of breast cancer is what I would be writing about,

 

My blog is at www.catlet.co.uk

 

I was 36 when I was diagnosed and had a 2 year old son and a 4 month old baby boy!

 

I was also planning my wedding and juggling being a full time worker and as hands on a mum as I could be - life was busy enough without throwing this curved ball at me,

 

Anyway it's 5 years later and I survived. I'm fatter and greyer and completely lopsided but there is enough of me still left to call me alive!

 

I hope you find some funny moments in the darkness

I wrote this blog when my breast cancer journey began, It helped me so so much to let off steam, and lots of people offered me support and encouraged me to keep going.. all as a result of it. It felt amazing that I could also help people going through the same thing, as other blogs had helped me.
I stopped writing it as I felt the blog still connected me to the cancer patient, and in reality - that’s just not who I was anymore.
I’m strong, and I’ve achieved what I wanted to achieve and more. It’s completely possible, and if my blog helps just one person to realise that for themselves - that makes me a very happy lady!

Ahh I’ve not used this in a while and I’ve started a new thread instead of posting my blog in here. Now I don’t know how to correct it 🙈

Here is my story for anyone who feels lost and afraid or just wants to read something they can relate to. Know that someone has felt as horrid as you do right now and made it through chemo, surgery and radiotherapy. I have included lots of tips on how I coped with treatments which you may find useful.
