Erev Rosh Hashanah 2011, the world as I knew it changed. Being diagnosed with cancer last year was one of the most challenging things I have ever experienced. So one year on post diagnosis, I just wanted to share a few thoughts and feelings.
This year has taught me so many things, that I don't think I'd of known had I not gone through everything that I went through this year. The main thing it has taught me is positivity. In times of trouble and sorrow, I believe that positivity is vital and I know that staying positive has helped make my cancer experience easier to cope with. I have also really learnt to appreciate everything I have as it can so easily be taken away from you. Live life to the full.
To all my family and friends who have been there for me over the last 12 months, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. To all those who visited me in hospital either for chemotherapy, my transplant or shingles, those who stood by me when my hair fell out and when I lost my eye-brows and eye-lashes, everyone who wished me well, everyone who mentioned me in their prayers (I appologise for my Hebrew name...), those who messaged, sent cards and those who just had me in their thoughts. Thank you. May this new year bring you all you ever wanted and more.
On a less cheesey note, I have two appointments next week. One with my haematologist and another with the eye specialist, I will update again in due course.
