About Me

A creative type who does a bit of everything and nothing.  Sometimes I love to draw, paint, play with clay, love natural wine, eat too much and meditate. Mother of two, first husband.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma on 11 November 2014.  A week after I was diagnosed I had a partial mastectomy and completed 6 months of Chemotherapy on the 1st of July 2015.  Since then I have had a left breast mastectomy in August and am currently in the process of having the tissue expander that was inserted between my chest wall and muscles expanded….Ouch.

I couldn’t have started writing this any earlier because I basically felt like I had the life sucked out of me and my brain was a foggy mess.  On that note, still foggy, still a little messed up.  This is my personal experience, my take on life when it sucks and how I’ve managed to keep on sucking it up.
