I am six years down the road from diagnosis with two recurrences. Some days are easier than others. On reflection, I do realise I am luckier than a lot of people. In between treatments, I have been able to return to work. During my first course of treatment, I completed a diploma in business studies. I have also managed to take breaks away. No I dont think for one minute, I am superwoman. I am trying to cope with this dreadful illness as best I can. I have learned many lessons during the past 6 years and this has in efect changed the way I think about life now. At the moment, I am out of treatment but in effect, this is a chronic illness.
I would encourage others to blog on this website as perhaps we could chat or help each other.
