So, some big news in my small world… I’VE (FINALLY) FINISHED TREATMENT! On the 20th of January at around 2pm, I was told that I could leave Ward F6 for what we all hoped (still hope) to be the last time.

18th November 2018 I don’t want to sit there and discuss how difficult I’m finding it with my loved ones. Mostly because I don’t know where the difficulty lies.

Let’s Be Honest

It’s been a little while since I sat down at my keyboard and I must say, I feel rather disappointed.
