About my blog

Getting a diagnosis of secondary breast cancer in March was not the best news.  Having had cancer twice before (both primaries) you’d think I would be getting used to it by now.  And having been involved in cancer stuff at different levels over the past 13 years, I pretty much know my way around the NHS system.  But each time has been different and this time has been much harder – the time taken to get a diagnosis, changing hospitals to get the best care, dealing with the effects of chemotherapy.

So I decided to start a blog.

I have so many lovely friends and family in many countries, but keeping in touch when you’re feeling rough is hard.  So for me this is a good way to let you all know what’s going on – the good, the bad and the ugly!

And it’s kind of cathartic for me too.

I will be posting some ‘Top Tips’.ranging from foods and drinks to tickle the taste buds, how to cope with the side effects of chemotherapy,  getting the best care, and enjoying life!  I’ll include links to useful websites but only after I’ve ‘road-tested’ them.  Some of the recipes out there are foul!!!!!!

Please feel free to share with anyone who you think might find my blog of some use. Or vaguely interesting.
