Measuring time.
I found myself referring to my cancer diagnosis the other day, and I had to think for a moment as to how long it has been since I was diagnosed. It is nearly 4 years to the day that I was told I had to have a mastectomy. Hold on. 4 years. How? I mean, reall...

All clear!
Just a very quick post, before my internet dies (which is my sorry excuse as to why I have not posted before now), BUT, my tongue biopsy came back all clear, thank goodness! Apparently, it is Keratosis, probably caused by me grinding my teeth (due to stress...

Still going strong!
Yes, I am still here, still ticking along. It's been too long since writing but life gets in the way rather!  I thought I had better check in though. I don't know if you read many other blogs, but so many of them end far too soon and you never know whether ...

Am I still in denial?
On the basis that I'm coming up to the 2 yr "anniversary" of my mastectomy, it seems rather odd to think that I might still be in denial, but I'll describe the circumstances that are making me wonder whether it might be the case, and let you decide. I've be...
