well today marks 2 years since I was diagnosed with grade 1, stage 3 invasive ductal carcinoma, her+, hormone negative. I went through lumpectomy, 6 months of chemo (better known as hell), 33 radiotherapy sessions and 12 months of herceptin. I can't believe how much I have enough through, how much I survived and I'm out on the other side. Life has changed, I have changed but I think probably for the better in many ways. I remember thinking that I would never get through this. It felt like forever at the time but now I can't believe how quickly it has gone. i still have days when I struggle, I still have days that I cry or get angry or I am so tired I feel like I could sleep for a month but I have so many more days when I feel grateful for the care I received. I feel determined to enjoy life more and choose to be happy. So for all of you going through this awful process, just know that there is an end in site, you can be happy, you can feel ok again. You may not be the same at the end of the process but that's ok too.
