Breast cancer awareness month

As a Breast cancer survivor of 9yrs, I find I have different reactions to Breast cancer awareness month even on a day to day basis. 

Sometimes I resent the reminder that 9yrs ago this month I was recovering from a mastectomy & fretting over starting chemotherapy. That our first wedding anniversary & my 40th birthday was over-shadowed by my recovery.

Other times I’m grateful & humble I’ve made it 9yrs past some of the worst days of my life. 

Mostly I wish for every awareness campaign there were equal amounts of energy put towards finding a cure.

15Jul21  I have a YELLOW DOT!  Which was the code at the GP's office that I was there for the AstraZeneca jab. This was my 2nd one, so whoo hoo!  As stickers go, it's not very exciting, but felt it was worth a photo for the day.  #2021pad #azjab #vaccinated #selfie
25Jun21  Fish Friday again. I made a sandwich using the fish fillet and a hotdog bun.  It was good. I could have easily had another but my glucose would have been through the roof!  #fridayfishday #fishsandwich #2021pad
17Jul21 This branch was next to, and partially under my car.  I looked the car over for any scratches or dents but thankfully there were none.  I really wish I had a carport... and that the weather would change back to something less exciting. #2021pad #wind #treebranch #nodamage #cf21 #change
16Jul21 I'm sure there was a rainbow somewhere but I didn't see it in my backyard. After a very rainy day, the sun came out at the end of the day.. Love the colours that it cast over my yard, and the overproductive orange tree!  #2021pad #backyard #latesunshine #orangetree
