December 5, 2019 – Marked 2 years since I had my double mastectomy
My life, like many others is complicated, painful, happy and sometimes very very sad.
What I really want this blog to do is to be:
1. An outlet for me to write all my random thoughts down
2. A place where (I hope) people will turn for insight, help and a laugh
I don’t pretend to be an expert at anything, but I have had (what some would say) a very ‘colorful’ life. My experiences, good, bad and ugly might just strike a cord with someone who has followed or is following a similar path and maybe, just maybe I can help.
I am also going through one of the toughest experiences of my life dealing with the post-mastectomy issue’s. So I hope through my journey more women will not feel so ashamed of their bodies. There are so many courageous women out there who suffer after their surgeries and I want them to feel like they are not alone.
My heart and spirit have a lot to say on a variety of topics and I hope that for the few of you that read this it touches you in some way.
