I’ve never been very good at keeping up with blogs. I normally post a couple of times and then forget, or it drops off the radar somehow. This time though, it feels more important, whether for me or for other people.
As many of you know already, I have been diagnosed with a high grade brain tumour. This is going to take a lot of processing but right now I feel okay, considering. I don’t know exactly what the future looks like, and as someone who likes to plan things out this is hard, but I have a start date for chemo and radiotherapy so that helps – treatment starts on the 2nd October. We’ll have to see how I react to that, but I have a great support network around me and a ‘recovery kitten’ (who is absolutely adorable!)
This is not the news I was hoping for, and it isn’t going to be easy. I’m trying to keep the balance between being honest and realistic with myself on one hand, and keeping positive on the other. Some days will be easier than others. Some will be harder. Many will be scary. But one day at a time seems like the best way forward, and with the continued support of family, friends and Arya (the new kitten!), I will try to do just that.
