  1. Thank you for sharing your journey and your honest feelings. I wonder if your initial denial was keeping you safe for a while by reducing your stress level. I love this powerful version of “We Are Going,” and sang along with it. I’m glad you are continuing to take good care of yourself and I’m saying a prayer for your healing and complete recovery. ❀

    1. Hi JoAnna, thanks so much for your prayer. I appreciate it. My denial definitely allowed me to get through the whole experience somewhat sane. As long as you get over it it’s not a bad coping strategy I guess. I only knew that version but all through last year I starting crying every time Wiyaala sings “It will be hard we know….” still, gives me tears but it’s a powerful song I feel. Glad you like it. πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ€—πŸ

  2. It is interesting to read your experiences and thoughts about the pandemic, Bee. I remember you treatment period and certainly read some of your posts. I am so glad you are through the treatment now and doing so much better.

    1. Thanks Robbie, I am glad too and will be even more when I can work again. Strangely, one thing I didn’t mention was losing my hair which was a big thing. Thanks for stopping by and being a regular reader. Much appreciated πŸ€—πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ

  3. Keep safe Bee. I had my lumpectomy in Oct 2016. Chemo would not have been beneficial as Humphrey was so pathetic because we’d caught him early, so I just had a course of radiotherapy. My annual mammogram in Sept 2019 showed a blimp, and Dick the shit was discovered. No lumpectomy this time, and a mastectomy followed on October 28th.
    I am fine. No other treatment apart from a change of meds. We’ve already decided if I get another strike, they can make the sides match.
    I thank my lucky stars we found it early both times and Dick before the pandemic. So many others have not been so fortunate. I am glad to read you are doing OK now and like you, if I hadn’t had Hubby by my side throughout, I don’t think I would have come out of it as well as I did. I also had massive support through the blogosphere.
    Positive vibes and virtual hugs being sent your way.

    1. And right back at you πŸ€—. I think I just start to figure what I really went through last year. But yours was certainly a harder journey than mine. Not sure if I can be as positive if it hit me twice. Sending you protective vibes πŸ•―πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ

    1. Thanks Deborah, but it didn’t feel that bad because I was so grateful that treatment happened. There were already women who couldn’t get treatment while I went through it. Compared to dying a little sickness didn’t feel too hard. Even though the fear of catching the virus was there all the time. Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ€—πŸ
