Just got back home from a Cancer Forum Meeting. I hate the "C" word with a vengence but its now firmly part of my life and I have difficulty coming to terms with saying the word.
Its nice to be able to discuss our views openly and honestly. We all cope with this illness in different ways and the word that gets bantered about most is "normal". To us we will never be normal ever again. I was "normal" before the illness. Now my normality is battling on everyday coping with five minutes at a time a time on a bad day and coping with each day as it comes when I feel good.
That is my normality.
I just hope that follow in this journey will have a better time of it and hopefully what I do will make a difference so that the mistakes I have come across don't happen to anyone else.
Best wishes to you all.
