Three years on from cancer

8 Jun

May 6th was 3 years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and you know what happened? I completely forgot about it! That day I was flying back from Rio de Janeiro, where I had been working for a week. Before my trip I realized that my flight back was on the day I was diagnosed, which made me think how life changes. Only three years ago I was in a hospital room being told I had cancer. Press the fast forward button and here I am, flying back from Rio and getting on with my life. Funnily enough last year I forgot too.  The strange thing is that I actually think about cancer every day. And my tearful moments often catch me by surprise: I can be running on the treadmill listening to Kanye West sing ”that that don´t kill me can only make me stronger” and then I am transported back to that hospital room, to the chemo suite, and I feel all chokep up. I have had many moments like that.

So, three years on from cancer and this is what my life and my hair post chemo look like:

Selling stuff in a second hand market. Ps. not that my hair is UP! those who have been bald, you know what I mean…
