Hi Samantha. I wish I could be more like you and live in the moment! It's so good when you can take pleasure in each day and look forward to nice things every month. Sadly, I'm a bit of an obsessive planner which is very frustrating when dealing with this annoyingly unpredictable condition! Bah. Maybe I need to take more Mindfulness lessons or something... Anyway, my job offer is a 3 year project in the USA. I spent the whole of last year working hard for this and beat off quite a lot of competition. However, the fact it's America has brought a whole host of medical insurance problems my way! My company are massively supportive and want me to go but red tape may mean it won't happen anyway. My medication will be shipped out to me and I'll have to fly back for scans. Onc is happy to do telephone consultations. Part of me thinks, if I haven't got long left I may as well enjoy it (I'm in my 30's and feel fit and well) However the sensible part of me says "put your health first and stay close to your hospital!" After much agonising I've decided (perhaps stupidly) to pursue the dream. I want to LIVE with cancer and not let it dictate me. I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull this off but I'm going to give it a blummin' good go! Feel free to jump in and tell me I'm crazy at any point by the way... Sanity checks welcome!
