Obla di Obla da Life goes on?

Hello to all,

I hope this finds you all well. Though I don't write as much as I use to, don't ever think I am not thinking of all you warriors. 

Last month I celebrated my survivor anniversary, My hubby took my son and I to a nice dinner to celebrate the lives we were given and the love that got us through. Even after all these years thinking of the day I was told I had the big C gets me choked up. A friend of mine saw me teary eyed and asked " It still gets to you after all this time? It's in the past!"  She seemed shocked when I responded, "not a day goes by that I don't think about it"

People don't realize how going through it changes you. Changes your whole life. They don't think and I'm glad that they don't have to, of each time I get dressed in the morning, or take a shower, or even get intamite the reminder of a piece of me is gone due to this horrible thing called cancer. Each time I have an unexplained pain, or feeling the thought is in the back of your mind. 

When woman talk about themselves and how they should look and the work they want done around me. I want to scream, " are you for real? You are perfect, you DO NOT want to see what I have to deal with under these clothes!" 

But I logically know that I need to move forward and can't dwell on what may happen in the future, cause we can't change what will happen as much as we can't change what's in the past. Life goes on, and that's the reality of it. Gotta stay positive. If not for me but for my son. Second chances and all that jazz😊

Thank you for this! Not a day goes by that I don't think about it either. I ask myself if there will ever come a time that that is not my reality. But I do not think that that will ever come to pass. I do not dwell on the fact that I had cancer. But I am reminded of the fact every single day. I still have side effects from treatment. I do not believe some of those will ever go away. But, I am alive, I am healthy, I am able to work, enjoy my adult children, and most recently my amazing little dog. Life is great! So glad to hear you are well

The fear it instills into people. Chemo & how life changes with one word.

There are so many good people in the world. So many angels.

Spread the word about breast cancer & to be positive.

Just being there. A phone call, a visit even if I don't seem in the mood.

Sleep, water, and I had really bad taste in my mouth and the best thing was having Freezies in the freezer.

CRY! Never hold in your emotions. even if you need to just get in a shower and cry your eyes out. Also, talk to someone when you need to.
