Happy New Year all. Whilst heading to work today I realised it is exactly one year today that I was diagnosed with cancer. Time sure does fly however I would argue it is hardly fun. However I am now 8 months post treatment and most things are coming back online albeit slowly. As so often stressed on this board, recovery is measured in tiny steps.

This journey has certainly taught me patience which was not one of my stronger qualities. It has also opened my mind to trying new things which in my previous life I would have dismissed.

Anyway for those about to or undergoing treatment you can do this. For those who have completed treatment and are in remission, keep going! I read this board everyday and feel all of us here are a pretty special group of people.

Happy Thursday.

Dunedintech, congratulations on your recovery and the one year anniversary!  it's great that most things are coming back slowly but surely.  My one year anniversary on getting really sick one night on a business trip to Europe, that ultimately made the doctors start looking for something deeper, is coming up Feb 9th.   I wasn't " officially" diagnosed until April 1st, which was NOT a funny April fools joke!


So great to read positive stories!  Keep healing!


All the best,

As you are well aware by now... You will get there, just a different road, and at a different pace...

Sometimes that curve in the road turns out to bring adventures you would have never known otherwise...

Boy that is a true statement especially last year, it seems like the year went by in only a few months. Glad to hear you are doing well and back at work, it helps you to keep focus and your mind active. Just remember things might not be as they once were, so you will need to get use to your new normal.


God Bless
