Writing here has been an incredibly helpful experience. It has helped me to process my many varied and conflicting emotions. It has given me a safe space to scream, to cry, to joke, to connect with others, and to keep people up to date with my progress. Primarily it has been a journal, just one that I have made public.
I am not yet finished with my treatment. I still have 4 more years of Exemestane to endure. I still have a few more stages of reconstruction to undergo. And while I will undoubtedly blog these events along the way, now feels like the time to gather altogether in book form. So that is what I am doing.
I hope the bulk of my story is now written. I hope occassional updates will be all that are seen here. Like everyone else who has ever had cancer, I live knowing that it may return. But I strive to keep that knowledge firmly at the back of my head and to live fully in the present.
Thank you for walking with me,
