Sunny Sunday


Thought i would post this as i have read a few posts were people are still struggling ( if thats the right word) after chemo finishes and this may be a little light at the end of the tunnel.

I had hystectomy last july15 and chemo six months finished jan 16 for stage 1c cancer.

i went back to work march at first found it hard going but turned out vit d and anaemic were crazy low due to chemo so got some good drugs to revert this and have not looked back since !!!

i have managed to loose over 8kg following the marvellous michael moseleys blood sugar diet and i feel it has increased my energy and get up and go'ness!! . basically avoiding all sugar hard at first but love it now

i have just come back from holiday were i have to say for the first time in a long time i didnt think about whats gone on or what may cone . i enjoy every day some days i feel tired but i just take those days a bit easier but on the whole feel ok and try to make the most of every day .

i hope anyone who is " struggling" at the minute as i know some are particulary if the chemo bus is with you or just left can see that it will get better the tiredness will hopefully pass and their will be good sunny sundays.

i hope you all get some good days and know if i can get through it anyone can . I hope the sun is shining and everyone is enjoying it and wish everyone well x

  • A lovely post Claire - thanks for sharing and so glad to hear things are going well for you xx

  • What a fabulous post... it's great to hear about the "other side" ...I also am 1c but have had a turbulent time with chemo... lots of stops and starts seems endless. Anyway I am on the last 3 head in down and I can't wait to finish. I have never availed of Councelling but think I will when it's all over...I have kept strong and positive throughout the last year managing to get the family through this ordeal with me without it overshadowing their lives too much. The one way i could control this situation was the way I reacted to it and so far so good. I take heart from your post and thankyou.

  • everyone finds their own way to get through it and to do what works for them , i had counselling but have always had it over the years and it helped me was a place i went and " ranted" for an hour !!!

    you are in the home straight and coming to the end of chemo i remember saying when i started mine i will never do another five of these but i did and i got through it. and here i am six months later someone said to me at work today i looked like my old self !! i smiled and thanked them but as i walked away i thought NO i am a new self a new me and then just got on with me day and moaned about finishing late at work with everyone else !!!

    things do return to a new normal hugs and good wishes x
