Just an update and to send everyone my best wishes. It is 12 months today since I was diagnosed. In some ways I have changed and in some ways I'm still the same. Small things still get to me but I'm beginning to get out and live and realise what I have and what is important to me. I'm gaining more confidence everyday. During my quieter moments I do still reflect on the past year and how I managed to get through. A lot of the people/friends that supported me during this time I hardly hear from which is disappointing. I'm sure they see me as "over" this and am well again therefore they don't need to be in contact as much. Disappointing but true. We are all busy I know. My true friends has stuck by me and again my work colleagues have been my strength as these are the people I see everyday.
I am scared it will return. This thought is never far from my thoughts. The nagging doubt is always there. I'm still having herceptin treatment every 3 weeks until October and of course am still on Tamoxifen. I still find going to the hospital every 3 weeks comforting as I see the nurses regular so that contact is maintained.
I hope everyone is travelling ok and that you are trying to get through as best you can. Thinking of you all often. If there is anyone in Perth( particularly the northern suburbs) who would like to meet one day or form a support group please send me a message. This is probably the only disappointing thing I have found is the lack of face to face support in Perth.
Your pink sister,
