My Mood: england calling

Hello all itís been a while, I hope you are all well.

The last twenty months have been life altering to say the least.

June 2018 my mum died, after breaking her hip. Her dementia just wouldnít allow her body to heal. Iím glad she no longer suffers.

In October 2018 I was diagnosed with having an Abdominal Aortic Anuryseum. It was 4.2cm when found, and grew to 4.7cm in the first 3 months..
I was put on medication to slow the growth rate and in September 2019 it was 4.8cm

Nothing can be done until it gets to 5.2cm then options are a stent or graft.....dependent on health.

Then in July this year 2019. I noticed an inverted nipple, saw my dr and after tests was told I had Breast Cancer.
In the UK 444 men a year get this, so I was shocked to say the least?

Iíve since had a mastectomy, and a full lymph clearance in right arm.

I start chemotherapy on Tuesday 19th of November for 18 weeks treatmeant, then radiotherapy and hormone therapy to follow after.

Time is a strange thing and I look back on my life and concern myself that my worrying and anxiety have truly caught up with me now and the physical ailments are side effects of my mental health condition.

I have learnt the hard way....donít worry about anything not in your control, appreciate everything, show gratitude as it defeats sadness and believe in your heart
Love will overcome everything..

Take care of You

Take care of YOU

Itís me
Iím sorry to hear all the losses
But you bring up something most cannot grasp
That includes me at moments
I control but myself and only myself
Iím blown away to have found while sitting in my oncologist office how many men are there for reasons like mine
Breast cancer

Sadly after all these years I finally addressed the pain I was suffering
Only to have be mutilated
I did my homework
Surgery was July 19 of this year
Cried like a baby
Bed bound for 5 weeks
Itís one thing for a second badly heals job due
To see him post op 6 months
Both hurt badly the pig skin was sewn to the ribs
Both from under the arm under to the center
They are not symmetrical in anyway
I wait to ask why did you not just close me up
I feel as if I were a project that failed
I cannot look at myself and will still never be able to wear a bra
I did everything I was supposed to and in the end
The very end of it all the only thing left is acceptance
Iím alive
You would think
With all the situational crap that is sucking the rest of my life
Turning it over and over and over
Why does it have to be so hard to fight to want to be alive
I still yet to find true love if that even exists
My chest hurts so badly right now refuse to take any pain pills
I have managed to decrease 5 mg at a time
1of my three anxiety meds and two of my four muscle relaxers
And as much as that be a huge accomplishment it is as far as I can go
Iím still learning David
And the truth of it all
We lost sight of us
I sure learnt the extreme
Acceptance is a B***H
I just do not want to have to fight wanting to live

Take good care of you
Wishing you great recovery and happiness to you
Take care
someone who cares
