Weekly Round Up

girl_with_lassoTime for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget if you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

So each week, I try to identify a theme that unites the blogosphere. This week, I noticed that many of you were pondering the big questions in life. While Diane pondered big mysteries, Jenny set out to answer a question from a friend – “What does it feel like to not move through the world as a cancer patient?”. Sharon responded to this writing prompt: “At what age did you realize you were not immortal? How did you react to that discovery?” and Kay pondered what it means to be tough.

Nancy shared some great tips on taking care of yourself over the summer, Liz has advice on eating well during cancer treatment, Margaret shares information on cancer and stress, and Helen on aquatic exercise for lymphoedema.
