26th March - 1 year ago today .....

Well, it is one year since the Dr called me and informed me that I had cancer. Where has that time gone ?

In the past year , I seem to have experienced every single emotion that there is . From fear, sadness, total grief to joy .

I cant believe that it happened to me and I still have those days when I think - ' why me ?' I am still scared that it will come back, sometimes to the point of paranoia.. but I have to try to let that go and think that I have as much chance now of getting cancer as anyone else. It is not a pleasant thing to have happen to you but sometimes I wouldnt change it for anything. I have learnt from this experience and it has made me who I am now.

I take time to ' smell those roses'

As for physical side affects- well I have some but not to the point of not being able to cope. The dilator is a curse that I will have to live with forever, but what a price to pay for my life .......

To all of you facing this , you will get through it and you will survive. You must try to be as positive as you can and there will be those days when you think ' I cant do this, I cant go on' but you must. Have your cry for as long as you need , then get up and say ' I am a survivor'

To those of you who have been beside me while I travel this path - a big thankyou , for without you all I couldnt have done it . My love to each and every one of you x x x

That was beautifully said, my friend! And oh so true! You've come such a long way in the last year, I applaud you and your strength. I just know even though we have our up days and our down days, we're all gonna make it and beat this!!!

You know, you post made me think and I realized that we have a little more in comon. I got the call about my evelated blood work the day after my birthday two years ago. So, with our time difference, that works out to the same day, do I have that right? Whew! its amazing how time flies.

So, lets all absolutely take that time to smell the NOT EVER because we aren't positive but because WE ARE!!!!



P.S. now, don't be forgetting the 'ng

Dear Robyn--

Thanks so much for your posting -- it was just what I needed to hear. I am scared to death about my appointment tomorrow, but I will keep telling myself, like you said, that I am a survivor and I will get through this with the Lord's help. You have been such a wonderful friend throughout all of this and I wish you much more good health in the future.

Love always,
