I remember being told the lump was in fact cancerous but it was as if I was not in the room I felt as if I was watching it happen to someone else. It didn’t help that I went for what I thought was my final appointment on my own! I remember ringing my partner at work sobbing down the phone. I felt disappointed with myself that I had got this disease.
I wondered what I had done to deserve it. My partner picked me up from the hospital and we went to Asda and had a cup of tea with about 10 sugars in, good for the shakes but not your teeth!! Even now after the operations and the treatment I still can’t believe what has happened to me. I feel it is such a part of my life and I carry it everywhere with me.
I feel I have become a stronger person now if I can deal with this I can do anything. In fact I am going to the local university open day soon to enquire about doing my nursing degree. At least all those times spent in hospital will help me with my patients! Finally thank you to my family and my two gorgeous daughters and Chris my partner and also to Butterfly of course!!
