It’s Saturday morning, at present my only child free window in the week. There always seems to be an endless list of things that I should be doing to clear the physical and mental clutter and make space for writing, I feel like one of those dogs that keeps chasing its...

I initially started this blog as a way to document my healing journey and share some of the insights gained along the way.

And she’s back!…..I just realised that a cancer patient retreating from the world and keeping quiet for a few months might send out the wrong message. So I’ll start this post with a quick update on my health and the reason for my extended break from writing.

As you can guess by the infamous bald head,  this blog is written by a cancer patient. Therefore, it makes sense for the first blog post to be about the diagnosis itself. There were many lessons learnt along the way, things I wish I had done differently so I'm hoping t...
