First chemo was a year ago

Just thinking about it still gives me the heebie jeebies, which is actually defined as 'a feeling of anxiety, apprehension, depression or illness'... pretty much describes it. It was my husband who noticed the date, since he was invited out to a dinner that he had to say no to last year. He's going this year.

We've all come a long way in a year. I am so thankful to be feeling as 'normal' as I am. Life is back to a good routine. I miss my support group though. I don't see them much now that I'm back at work. We'll have to figure something out...


  1. I will be your support group... I am planning my oldest wedding... hmmm never thought I would live to see it...

    So YES ... we need to stick together.... with our UPS and (downs)



  2. Beth, it sounds like you are doing great:) You will always have support through your readers so please make sure that every so often you check in.I think there will always be a connection with all of us that have gone through this and supported one another.
    Enjoy life and your family and we will always be around if you need us.

  3. It is strange looking backwards at cancer, isn't it? Congratulations on your milestones.

  4. It is weird looking back at your dates of chemo and stuff. I am still getting treatment every 3 weeks so its not the same for me just yet x

  5. It's way better looking back at it than forward! I like this spring way better than last spring when chemo started. No doubt you do too!

  6. Amazing that we went through what we did, isn't it? One foot in front of the other, that's all we could do and did. Now onto healthy eating and exercise to regain our lives (chocolate unfortunately is still in mine).

    Love the hair!!

  8. I am 29 years old and have been diagnosed with breast cancer, ease of treatment and a similar story, except for my first acceptance as a rejection of herbal medicine. I was not part of the Perseid movement and did not really build relationships with any of them, I just believed in their operation. I say this because it was during the use of Dr. Itua herbal medicine that I now attest that herbal medicine is real, the phytotherapy Dr. Itua heal my breast cancer which I suffered for 2 years. Dr. Itua herbal medicine is made of natural herbs, with no side effects, and easy to drink.
