I like to say Hi to everyone. 
Up till I was 45 I worked kept my house in order, plus I was living with my two grown up children, that all changed in 2012, I went into Hospital in agony took appendix out I was in and out of the place, they saying nothing wrong with me said I had a test here 4 years ok I’m going to cut this short, 4 years pervious there was a lump never called back when they finally found my records I was T4 cancer last stages again mega chaos I ended up in another Hospital who saved my life, but little did I know what impact the whole of the operation chemotherapy wud have on me, won’t moan I’m here my husband passed away with cancer 17 years ago age 34 A massive loss, so I didn’t think for one minute I’d have it, but I made it with wat I’d say life changing, 6&half years I’ve nerve damage in my hands & feet, plus flushes so I have not really been anywhere or done a lot I joined today as my family have their own life’s now, so I thought of coming on here and making friends,which everyday is a bonus or the same routine, reaching out to talk to others, as I’m sure my friends don’t want me to do nothing they have encouraged me to join so here I am, anybody wants to let of steam or just a chat with someone other than my dogs, I will look forward to meeting new people in the same position as myself.
