About this Blog
This blog started as an online diary and place for me to rant about annoyances in my family.
However since July it has become a place for me to catalogue and express my views and opinions on the treatment I have recieved following the diagnosis of a potentially cancerous tumor in my bowel.
On 3rd August 2011 I was told that it was cancerous. In April 2012 I was given the all clear.
October 15th 2013 I was diagnosed with peritoneal disease and liver metastases. The cancer was back and this time it is inoperable.
It is a little bit out of date as the NHS doesn't tend to have a WiFi connection in hospital and I can only post when I get home and posts take a while to write.
It is NOT about individuals or the nursing profession. It is about some of the inadequacies in the system and the way the NHS is failing some people.

What cancer does to you
When you have cancer eating becomes very important to you. You eat what you want when you want. Because I have lost so much weight this is even more true for me.
This afternoon I have been in tears because I wanted emmental cheese to go with some crackers. Tony couldn't find what I asked him for, so he bought me Brie. Which normally I love melted onto a bagel or toast. But I wanted emmental.
I cannot get over how pathetic I'm being about cheese.
There is no point crying over missing cheese.
