Three Years Since Chemotherapy

The summer solstice always marks my anniversary since chemotherapy ended…! Why am I sharing this? Because I can! It’s been three years and yet it’s only in the last months I finally have stopped seeing ‘chemo girl’ in the mirror. Yet I never read articles about people ‘surviving’ cancer – why? Well because once it’s

Two Years since ABVD

Tomorrow, the 21st June 2014, marks 2 years since I had my last ABVD chemotherapy session for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. It’s an ideal day not just for gratitude but reflection and acceptance. I read an article on how being authentic is the bridge between the inner creative world and the external reality we relate to daily.

One Year On From Chemotherapy

I had to write about my enthusiasm to celebrate one year on since chemotherapy ended! Last year, on the 21st June 2012, I was finishing off the last of the 6 month ABVD chemotherapy process. The last one was exciting because I had my PIC line taken out and also it was a very quick

Chi-Gung at the Happiness Centre

This One Is For All The Evolving Souls

I have resisted writing because I have convinced myself I have nothing to offer. Then it just struck me, even if one person reads this and it helps them to feel more inspired and less alone, it’s worth me writing. I have completely forgotten myself in the last 4 weeks. I have completely forgotten the

3 Months after Chemotherapy

I just noticed I haven’t been writing about how I’ve been after the course of chemotherapy ended. I have so much information now under my belt about being human and going through chemotherapy, that I don’t want to hold back on the information I have gathered! 3 months down the line after finishing my ABVD

London Bound & An Unknown Future

I won’t lie, finishing chemotherapy is amazing but you are left feeling suspended in time – detached from normality and living in a body, which has been wrecked by chemicals for 6 months. It’s such an odd feeling and one that the doctor warned me about. She told me that by the end of chemotherapy

Ibiza and Recovery

I haven’t been able to write my Blog for ages as I’ve been out of internet range plus been amongst a very full household on the white island. I’m well and recovering slowly. My face is beginning to look normal again but my body is taking a while to look how it used to! My
