Just had a shit burger dealt, well a shit slider, it’s not huge just Fricken inconvenient, annoying & frustrating.
Have been fighting a cold all week. Every February I am prone to getting Pharyngitis / Laryngitis coupled with viral asthma and/or chest infection. When I woke up this morning with a cough & no sleep I booked a GP appointment straight after my heart scan. Took the day off and GP gave me the rest of next week hoping it will be enough rest for the virus to be gone so surgery will not cancelled.
So more unpaid sick leave, was supposed to start Claims Officer role next week, given ventolin script & precautionary antibiotics if it turns bacterial over weekend & will ring surgeon with verdict on Monday.
On Viral Guard hoping that will way lay onset and had vegetable soup for tea.
Happy days 😔 xx

I was 21 and I was planning a wedding, buying a house and had a job interview for the job of my dreams on my 22nd birthday. You see I was being made redundant and had to find a new job by August. Especially with the new mortgage now. It was April. I worked for CML and my new job was a done deal. All I needed was a medical. And with that, just like that....my life was turned upside down and I was diagnosed with CML, ha ha, I know the irony. My hematologist had a laugh at that too. I had Chronic Myeloid Leukeamia, which was normally reserved for 70 year old men. Quite rare for a young adult to get, so how would they treat it? I underwent two separate trials until finally it was decided my best chance of survival (all be it only 50% chance), would be a MUD BMT (matched unrelated bone marrow transplant), now known as VUD Allograt (volunteer unrelated donor). I was told 21 years ago the chance of finding a match was 1 in 20,000 (and that is everyone was on the bone marrow donor registry). Scary odds. So being the risk taker I am I said "go for it". They found a match and that was my first miracle in this journey. The second miracle was, it worked - new blood type, two different DNA profiles and the miracle of medicine was reborn inside me. The third miracle is my son.
25 years on, I now face a new challenge. Breast Cancer. Certainly not the first person to have cancer, to have invasive ductile cancer, hormone receptive and HER2 +, or to even have a dual diagnosis. But this is not another Webiste about a cancer survivor, this is just my excuse to finally publicly write. Along the way I am hoping I can share some insights I have learnt over the years and at the same time, give you a good belly laugh.

Rest up Deb, hope you are feeling better after a good nights sleep and some cuddles on the couch with your new baby 😁
