Well bugger and bum you find yourself here 

And hooray that you do

There is always going to be a someone here that will get it and hold your hand

why do I know this?

Because 18 months ago they did for me

Now .... big deep breaths and big girls pants - Bridget Jones style - and in no time you’ll be where I am 

I’m in Spain yeah a holiday 

Holiday who thought back then I’d be having one of those


Life is like a boxing match, defeat is declared not when you fall ..... But when you refuse to stand up again ....... So, I get knocked down but I get up again. x

As leolady said,  its bugger.  Lots of us have finished treatment but stay because of the friends (commonly known as fruit loops ) we've made. I had my MX almost 5 yrs ago and what an adventure I've had. Currently planning a return trip to new Zealand and Australia in January/February 

MIND OVER MATTER - I don't mind and what you think doesn't matter.

Hello welcome to the community none of us ever thought we'd be a member of, but the best community i know of.

I had a mastectomy 7 weeks ago tomorrow, i cut the grass yesterday :O) i never thought i'd enjoy cutting the grass so much. 

Good Luck with the mastectomy and anything you want to know don't hesitate to ask. 

One thing i would say is take in some cartons of juice or a bottle of squash, after surgery the water tastes manky lol and maybe a packet of biscuits in case you get peckish.

 It's gonna make us who we are, it's written in the scars  "The Script"
