on halloween weekend i noticed i was having a lot of bad headaches i was spending a lot of time playing and chatting on my favourite game Wonder Bingo and everyone was saying to me i should go and see a doctor. after a few more weeks i decided to go to my local GP i had also noticed i had an inverted nipple which not thinking for a minute it was related but decided to mention it anyway.the GP then sent me for blood teasts and a mammogram as well as a ultra sound,i was not concerned as it was all routine . while having the mammogram i started to get a bit nervous as there was a lot of whispering and questions that i wasn't expecting but i must admit even though i could clearly see there was something going on i thought its properly just a cyst . when i went back to the GP i said i new something was wrong but i would wait till after christmas to address it, he said he had already spoke to a surgeon and that i was booked in to see him the following week . At the moment i just knew it was serious i kept my feelings to myself but i knew it was time to be prepared for the worse. peter and i went to the appointment and the surgeon was up front and said he thought it was cancer but we needed a biopsy to confirm it a few days later i had the biopsy and on christmas eve i got the confirmation that i had breast cancer..... from that moment i decided well i know now there is no use worrying about it because its not going to change the situation lets just enjoy christmas with our family and friends which we did and we will face whatever treatment that i need in the new year...... so here i am its now new years eve and i am starting this blogg so my family and friends can keep up dated on my journey... if anyone has any advice or questions feel free to let me know as i think this is a great way to keep up a positive attitudehappy new year everyone shazza xxxxx
