So, since my entire life seems to be changing….I figured why not completely overhaul my site as well? I mean, why not right? No time like the present. And I don’t know, the new look just feels a lot more me. Or me right now. It could all change in a year, and in that time I am sure I will have changed in many ways as well.
Moving along, how was your weekend? I was actually in bed most of the weekend which just plain sucked. Right when I get over round three chemo side effects, I get sick, put on an antibiotic that comes with it’s own fun set of side effects. But today I am feeling good! And I just don’t intend on wasting a day.
I have to say a big thank you to all the responses to my post about being diagnosed. I appreciate all the comments, and emails. I touched on this a little bit before, but I was so reluctant about sharing anything when I was first going through everything. I wanted to just sign off. And I did. But when I stepped away to wrap my head around things I began to look for resources. Not medical resources. Personal accounts of women my age that have battled through this disease and come out the other side. My findings were slim to none. And I get that. But being diagnosed with breast cancer at what is considered to be a young age is, lonely. I talk with so many women on a weekly basis in doctor’s offices, and at chemo treatments, and what we have in common is breast cancer.
Which made me realize that sharing this process as I go through it just might make me less lonely, and help someone else feeling the same way.
I have said so many times to people around me that, I can’t go backwards. I can only go forward.
So thats’t what I am doing. After each treatment knocks the shit out of me, I rebound and pick up right where I left off. Back to school drop off and pick up. Back to soccer games and Target runs with the girls. Basically anything that gets me out of the house. And last week I had the pleasure of attending the Traditional Home and Southern Style Now show house press preview here in Savannah! The house is in the historic district and it was completely transformed by multiple different designers (I will post more on this soon), and each and every room was just incredible. I was in interior design heaven.
After, I decided to do some shopping around the design district. I found a couple amazing stores, Thread + Onion (where this shirt is from), and Custard Boutique (where I scooped up these glasses). Every time I am downtown for something I realize that I have so much more to explore in Savannah. I mean clearly we have only lived here for six months, and five of those months have been consumed with breast cancer, but it feels so much like home.
So here’s to another week of feelin’ good, and remembering that this is not the end.
