Loosing a parent!

When a Parent Dies: Dealing with the Loss of Your Mother or Father By David Kessler This is spot on. I guess until you go through this you will never know.  #parents #love #grief #davidkessler #survivor #iamstillawoman  When a parent of an adult dies, there is almost an unspoken expectation that it will not hit you head on. An adult is expected to accept death as a part of life, to handle all sudden losses in an appropriate adult manner. But really, what does that mean? That you should not be sad? That you should be so grateful they didn’t die when you were a child that you don’t need to mourn your parent? The above considerations demonstrate an under-estimation of grief. Grief is the reflection of the connection that has been lost. That loss does not diminish because you are an adult or because your mother or father lived a long life.

The devastation looking back through the hour glass!

A survivor means many things! But above all it means you have survived something that could have killed you. Sharing information is great because it helps others and I needed a lot of help to make decisions that I knew nothing about. I was very lucky that cancer council and some ladies that had been through the same things shared their story. It’s great to listen to others, but also to take what you need from this. Not all Information that is shared is good. Looking glass looking back! This year marks the 11 th anniversary of my second cancer! Sounds weird I would rather celebrate with something good. But guess what I am here that’s amazing! Would I make the same choices! Not sure! Would I do the same things not sure! Coming this far! Fear no longer consumes my mind! Oh that’s ok pretty sure only a couple of years ago I panicked over everything and started imagining things that weren’t even there. After the mastectomy I couldn’t feel my chest! This far in I still can’t. The sk

Nipple reconstruction the terror!

I have kind of decided it’s pretty dumb to want nipple surgery! Can they replace it the same no. But has techlogy made it easier or harder! Gee hard question! I wanted my nipples back to be human and a women again! Looking back it’s the stupidest thing I have ever done! No nipples: No bra It costs a lot of money and I don’t think it’s worth it, they are gone now it’s time to accept the loss. As hard as it is. I thought it would be great! Trying to get my body back, but the truth is our not coming back it’s gone and that has to be ok. I guess it was do I get tattoos and try and look normal again! They do have some great tattoo nipples. Well no I have accepted the new me but it comes with so many insecurities that I thought I was over. It’s ok not to have them! It’s ok not to be ok. But I am ok my boyfriend at the time spent $10,000 on these nipples to make me feel good, he actually was fine with everything so why was I so desperate to replace something that’s gone! Be happy
