    Well there isn't much else to do when you are tied to your bed, oxygen and a machine. So i finally got aroud to this blogging thing.

    They have been amazing for me to read so now it's my turn to give back.

    Wierdly, looking back at my time in hospital beig treated for lung infection, for nearly a week, I have finally realised it was a good thing, it's made me slow down and stop prioritising the wrong things.

    I finally met the man of my dreams. The man that made all the love songs make sense. The man who loved me and cared for me and cherished me. We had been friends for years and had finally both let our walls down to trust each other. We had been living together for 13 months.

    We were planning to get married secretly and then tell all our family and friends about it. That was until the day we got the cancer news.

    I live on Sydney's northern beaches, I love everything about the great outdoors and appreciate everything that Mother Nature throws my way lightening, storms, rainbows beautiful sunrises and sunsets
    I love watching the sunrise every morning and it gives me great joy to appreciate the simple things in life and I can't help myself but everytime, I pass someone with a dog I just want to pat them they just give off so much happiness and they make me smile

    Hello and morning as I prepare for another days work.

    Blood test result the first of maybe 3 has a satisfying result in that the PSA level has slowly declined to 2.3.

    Yes it has been a while since I have been at that level and although I seriously doubt I will ever get below 1.5 I am happy with the progress without the added hassles of hormone treatment.

    Yes I did mention work but due to Australia and the declining resources industry along with the every increasing daily costs of living I had to get a job but it is not in Australia.

    Hello , everyone. I apologise for not posting for some time but I have been consciously trying to avoid the C word. I was diagnosed all clear and put on a graduated return to work. I have " come down " off all medication. I was in the shower one morning and looked down ( men I realised rarely look at themselves naked ) and saw an emaciated figure which was a bit of a shock. Like something out of POW camp. I was concerned when returning to work as my clothes no longer really fitted. I also initially had difficulty eating in public as eating caused me to shake.

    Ok I have just completed round 4 of 6 of chemo so I feel a bit better qualified to have a crack at a here we go..I have an addiction… that’s right…My name is Yvonne and I am addicted to diet coke….I cannot pass a vending machine without a fix. ….Cheapest diet coke in town is the vending machine at the police station… so what does this have to do with chemo one may ask…nothing really although people have compared it to poison I believe..each to their own I say

    Hi my name is Ivana and this my adventure.

    I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2015 .I have had my mastectomy, currently having chemo then radio

    I don't call it a story but an adventure... Everyone in life has hurdles to cross.. It's how we jump the hurdles, where we get advice, who picks us up when we fall, that can make a big difference to our adventure.
    Not all adventures have a happy ending and I will be sensitive to this in my narration
