Things are changing in my world. Not in the ghastly – cancer’s going to mug you and take your year – kinda way. That way knocks the wind out of you, leaves you on your ass while it skates by shouting “loser”. So I’m very grateful it’s not that kind. Life is yelling “Forwards” at […]

Well Hello There! I was going to write this update in the a numbers breakdown style, a la Bridget Jones; Nos. of Times Sick, Teaspoons of Apple Sauce Consumed, Pills Popped, Hours Slept etc….   Good sense prevailed however, so I shall just say after a a week and a half at my darling Papa’s […]

I’m really vain, really vain. Not the easiest thing to admit to, I didn’t really realise it until I got diagnosed. Overnight I became a Vain Hypochondriac*, no mean feat.   What was the first thing I did post diagnoses? It was not jump on Google and find support groups, healthy eating plans (hello, cake), […]
