More than Monday Morning Blues?

I’ve come to accept the Monday morning blues as something that is normal. I am though starting to think that there is something else behind why I find I am affected by them in such an extreme way. OK, so I know I don’t have ovaries, but this is me on a nightly basis. I…

2019 The Season of Change

This, for me, is a season of change. I’ve been wanting to start changing for so long now, but haven’t. I think about change a lot, often how I’m going to change, and how I’ll fuck it up and how its just easier not to bother. I’ve had a couple of days stuck at home….

‘D’ day – part two. It’s not cancer, so why do I feel down?

It’s not cancer! The tumour (yes, it is a tumour) is benign and therefore not considered as a Cancer. It still needs removing and retesting, which is run of the mill. But, it’s not cancer, I should feel relieved. So why don’t I feel amazing I hadn’t figured on this outcome, I’d not prepared myself….

‘D’ Day

‘D‘ is for diagnosis. Today I will finally have confirmation that either I do, or don’t have Cancer. Up until 11:30 today I’ve been feeling OK. Now I’m starting to feel quite nervous. What makes today worse is that I have a 1hr bus journey to get to the Hospital, and another 1hr to get…
