Hey, Brother & Sister!

Seems to be my week for causes.....

#1.  I am a breast cancer survivor.  I am fast approaching my 4 year mark following my surgery and radiation treatments.  

#2.  I'm doing fine, thank you.  I recently had a visit with my oncologist, and she says everything looks OK.  Personally, I'm glad we've cut our little visits/chats to twice a year.  I like the people who work there, they are all very nice and professional and all, but I wouldn't shed a tear if I never had to see them again.  ~Maybe in the grocery store or the mall or something would be OK.

#3.  I'm still working through the effect having cancer has on my brain.  I didn't have chemo...and I thank God everyday for that...but it changed me.  Some for the better, some not.  I sometimes have bouts with depression.  I notice I'm a little more paranoid these days.  But, I'm working through it, and doing my best to keep my thoughts positive.  I'm truly a natural optimist.

#4.  I have an awesome family and group of friends that support me.  I can't thank them enough for everything they've done for me...I try to bake, or do little things I think of on the spur of the moment to help them get through their weeks too....

#5.  Last, but not least.  I thank all of my blogger friends for the laughter and tears.  Mostly the laughter, because most of you are a crazy lot...just the way I like it!

Thank you!

Love, 365

  1. So glad you've seen the last four years and you're still with us.
    I have lost more than one friend to cancer and I hate it.

    Glad you're not having to go see the Oncologist so often, too. So stressful.

    1. Thanks, Ami! I've been shocked to find so many people I know have experienced breast cancer. Mine was found on a yearly mammogram, so be sure to keep up with your yearly check-ups.
