How do I feel the day after radiotherapy has finished? I feel like I’m freewheeling if I’m honest in a direction where I don’t know the destination. I’m used to having regular intensive hospital appointments. I’m used to BEING at the hospital. I know most of the staff there now. I’ll miss their smiling faces of encouragement. Coming away from that is unnerving.
Ok, so I’m in the hospital still every three weeks but the big guns have been put away.
Will cancer stay away? Do I want it to? Of COURSE I want it to, but it’s been part of my story. It’s a bit like going back to work after having a baby…you’ve been so immersed in baby-life that it seems foreign to go back to work. I remember heading back into the office after baby number 1 and I had a bit of baby sick on my shoulder and baby wipes in my bag. I wonder if that’s what i’ll be like when I return back to work this time? I’ll be going back with my scars and daily medication in tow….but will I go back to the old me? I doubt it. Pretty sure I lost her down a drain the day I was told I had breast cancer. The good news is I feel a new me emerging from this. A new inner strength. Safe in the knowledge that I can do this. Who am I kidding. I’m genuinely sh*t scared of what’s to come.
