Books and wine I can only repeat what everyone else has said, we all never expected this to happen to us and its throwing us around a fair bit, people say how brave we are and how well we are doing, when really we are just trying to get through each day as normally and best we can. We all have to do what we need to keep going x I struggled hitting the halfway mark too, I thought I would be happy that it was now the count down, but I wasn't, I just saw how far I still had to go, but now I remember how scared we all were about starting chemo and those of you that are changing for the next 3 it must feel the same again ...... xxx. but we are doing this and each day is a day closer to having lots of the normal things we miss back. I said to my friend I'm fed up of looking in the mirror and seeing someone one else, I want me back, and I do have moments where I wonder if I ever will come back. Most people don't understand that this is something we have to accept and live with now, and that as we get past each stage there is a new one, until eventually we can live normally and only think about this near the times of our check ups, after the daily pills have stopped, and that's a bloody long time, but as we get further on it will be less about cancer and more about life and each day is a step on. I'm seeing my surgeon in 2 weeks to check following my DM, so should know timeframes with a bit of luck and he can explain options, does anyone know what happens about nipple tattoos there isn't much info for the uk? I was going o get another tattoo but wasn't planning on these ones lol Rosie sorry to hear your sausages didn't play nice ! Thanks for the heads up re redundancy and the law I'm going to contact McMillan next week see if they can help ! It's a good job we went for the caravan last week or that would be off the cards, but for now I don't care, we pick it up tomorrow and I can't wait to play house in it, will give me something to do getting it sorted. So what good bits have you lot planned coming up, anything on this weekend ? And just for the record, I don't think we are brave I think we are fec'ing AMAZING !
