Today marks a year since I was told I had breast cancer. I know, I know I said I was done with 2012... but I just started to look back at my photos for the first time since the big C entered my life. I couldn't help but gather a few pictures up to document what I was going through a year ago. And of course I couldn't NOT post about my cancer anniversary date. It is, after all, a day I will never forget.
From that awful first week of diagnosis, my first pixie hair cut, family visits... to the day before surgery, post-operation and recovery. Today I can state the obvious and say I am absolutely in a much better space than I was back then!
I feel proud that I got through those first few scary months. And oh boy what a crazy terrifying time it was.
I now can't help but laugh at the irony that I happened to be diagnosed in the beginning of January...at the start of a new year where things are generally supposed to be hopeful, new and fresh... The whole New Year occasion now brings a completely different meaning for me. It's hard to really explain... it's almost a bit of a re-birth in a sense.
Looking back, I can't believe I made it through all that.
Looking forward, I am hopeful for a happier and healthier 2013!
