Three Years Since Chemotherapy

The summer solstice always marks my anniversary since chemotherapy ended…! Why am I sharing this? Because I can!

Chemotherapy Number 2

In Hammersmith Hospital Well it’s number 2 and I hope to God this one is a lot easier than the first. Unfortunately I reacted horrifically to my first session of chemotherapy but I wouldn’t expect anything less considering I have never exposed my body to excess drugs, toxins etc. Anyway this is what I have

Change & Happy New Year

It’s the last day of 2011 and being the last day of the year, it’s a time for reflection, appreciation and love. I used to see it as a day to reflect on how little I had achieved and how much I needed to do for the following year. For me New Years was simply
