Loosing your Mother Cancer - grieving nightmare

My mum has been gone now 18 years. Not a day goes past I still don't miss her and want to speak to her. Life is a weird thing we all rent this space only. Some of us will die young others live to be old or 100 if you are very lucky. Between accidents, disease or just in the wrong place at he wrong time it can all end.
As we grow up parents are the protectors of the family, when you loose one the other is totally lost. This has happened to me and my 2 sisters. Dad is certainly not the man he used to be. A soul mate comes along every now and then. I know my grief has been massive, I can only imagine the heart ache of losing your other half.
My mother lived 53 years only. Gee that's my age next birthday. It's not old at all.
When I lost my mother is was an all nighter no sleep she slipped into a coma and never woke, it all happened very quickly. Dad was the only one allowed in as she was in intensive care. My sisters and I on top of no sleep lots of stress started to fight an…

Cancer the second time!

Get through being shot once. The gun is now reloaded and going to shoot me for the second time. You know what! Is it worse the second time? Ok so you know where you are headed, that can be good or bad because it the way you look at it. Ok the good, maybe I can get through this I have done it once before. The bad, omg 😲 I know this Road and it's really hard and really long, really shitty! I can't do this again can I??
Ok you all know that have been through this it's a machine gun going off.... that noise is deafening. I took a walk to see how my head was going. The tears started to fall by the millions, I am now more scared, my boys, my life! Helllll
The more I walked the more I cried, then I ran and so did more tears. Then I fell. I could hear everything but I couldn't absorb my thoughts. Was I walking to hell. I have been there before and it's not nice!
How to sugar coat Cancer.. you can't and you won't.
If why me didn't come screaming through my head…

Cancer diagnosis - trauma

When I was 24 being told you have stage 4 cancer is a really big blow! Massive I remember everything about that time. I try to hide it. In the day 28 years ago, I was young, I was in denial, I was petrified. I thought I was bullet proof, but then don't we all think that, I didn't know much about cancer only that it kills people, why me. Been married 3 years paying off my first home. Pregnant 19.5 weeks with my first baby. Life was amazing and wonderful.
What changed! The answer is everything and everyone. I wanted to hide from the world. I had this big idea to keep it a secret as I couldn't stand that people may write me off or scare me more, was this a great plan, maybe NoT!
But it was the only plan I had. Young minds don't cope but then is there ever a time good to be given that kind of news. No way!
Fear is the worst, it makes things bigger, scarier and being given 8 weeks to live. I thought that was enough to kill me in itself.
They put me in the terminally ill war…

Breast cancer in Men ~ Possible symptoms

Possible symptoms of breast cancer to watch for include: A lump or swelling, which is usually (but not always) painless.Skin dimpling or puckering.Nipple retraction (turning inward)Redness or scaling of the nipple or breast skin.Discharge from the nipple. Prevention is better than cure. If you see any of these symptoms contact your doctor. In America fathers have passed it on to their daughters. So same as us ladies, get your man to do the same check. #malecancer #malebreastcancer #symptoms #survivor #jeansforgenesday

Cancer most commonly begins in the area of the cervix called the transformation zone, but it may spread to tissues around the cervix, such as the vagina, or to other parts of the body, such as the lungs or liver. There are 11 signs to watch out for.  #cancercouncil #cervicalcancer #youtu.be #prevention

Making a purpose out of caos ~ Cancer

When bad things happen we seem to always say why me??? Boy have I said this a thousand times!!!
Well really everyone goes through some bad things. That is life. You are just going amazing along this little train track and boom!!! Your hit onto a new track. A different one, it's a new path I guess I call it. It takes time to find your way! I think you know what I am trying to say.
As its so traumatic a life threatening disease, it's a lucky hard thing to survive. But as a survivor we can help people, if you save one life you have done a great thing, my blog is important to me. I was so afraid, too many choices and big words I never understood.
So just maybe this was my new path. To help others so they don't get scared as I did.
