Unbelievably it has been a year since I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. I know that because I attended my first annual check this week. A lot has happened in the last year and I have written various blogs along the way but I haven’t written an update on my health since February, just after my 5th dose of chemo. A few people have asked about an update, so here it is…. I don’t like to moan about my experience because I am acutely aware that many people are going through or have gone through so much worse. I was in two minds about writing this blog because a dear friend of mine is currently very poorly - it doesn’t feel at all right to be writing about my recovery in the circumstances.
