The first part of this blog is retrospective though based faithfully on my diary account.
I’ve always been a “Glass Half Empty” girl. It’s the way I am. It’s a form of self defence. Expect the worst then be prepared for it. Positive mental attitude doesn’t cut it for me but I luckily have a husband who is the world’s best exponent of that attribute.
Talking to fellow sufferers I have come to the conclusion that whatever sort of person you are you develop coping strategies very quickly and that miserable people get cured too.
This is my story for anybody that cares to read it.
I have had the most amazing support from my husband and the friends I have made on the MacMillan forum. I hope this helps those of you on a similar journey. This journey is dark and painful, the roller coaster pitching you physically and mentally up and down but it spits you out into the light. Don’t ever give up. The light is there and it’s wonderful.
