Just wanted to share with you, who know what I am talking about, that today is the seventh anniversary of my diagnosis and I am teary, sad, contemplative, thankful and many other emotions!
I remember the day in every minute detail as if it were yesterday. I have come a long way since and made many new friends and sadly lost a few too, in the BC world. I usually get on with life, and can only think that 7 is a significant time that has passed.
Perhaps my thoughts were triggered by the mammogram I had on Tuesday at BreastScreen Tas- that is my first return there since they found the tumours and I breezed in. Composed, happy and thankful.
It was over in no time and didn't hurt at all, that trusty remaning right breast did what it was meant to! But when I got back to my car I burst into tears- just "nerves" as my mum would say!
This morning I awoke with a feeling of such mixed emotions that my darling husband did not know how to cope asking what had HE done? Dear man.
I sobbed out what was getting to me and now I must get on with the day. I await the all clear from this mammogram, I await new things happening in my life, I await meeting up with friends, making new ones and I await the cure. No woman should have to endure breast cancer, it robs you of that blissful ignorance that tomorrow stretched forever.
In exchange we are granted the vision to see each day as precious, a gift to be used wisely and richly.
Love you all, Mandy
