A creative type who does a bit of everything and nothing. Sometimes I love to draw, paint, play with clay, love natural wine, eat too much and meditate. Mother of two, first husband.
I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma on 11 November 2014. A week after I was diagnosed I had a partial mastectomy and completed 6 months of Chemotherapy on the 1st of July 2015. Since then I have had a left breast mastectomy in August and am currently in the process of having the tissue expander that was inserted between my chest wall and muscles expanded….Ouch.
I couldn’t have started writing this any earlier because I basically felt like I had the life sucked out of me and my brain was a foggy mess. On that note, still foggy, still a little messed up. This is my personal experience, my take on life when it sucks and how I’ve managed to keep on sucking it up.
