  • Blog Post: Back to the Buddhism

    So I went through the slough of despond after chemo 4 as the veins in my left arm packed in and being left handed it was as if my world imploded.

  • Blog Post: New year New Ewe?

    Round 4 came and went between Christmas and New Year - relatively easy and then we enjoyed New year and the following week of holiday.

  • Blog Post: dealing with feelings

I've realised that although I have excellent support from my partner, I want to know how other people feel in a similar situation to me. I had a small tumour, with no spread to the lymph glands so the future looks good and I'm lucky...
