Weekly Round Up

Time 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.

I’ve been feeling pretty overwhelmed with sadness over the past few weeks – there are several reasons for this and it’s something I am planning on writing about soon…. perhaps. The other evening, overtaken by a particularly strong wave of grief, I logged onto Facebook, and there was Justine Froelker speaking about riding the wave of grief. It was incredibly powerful and I want to share it with you here as it might also help some of you who are struggling with grief and sadness too.

In a post that will resonate with many of you, Rebecca writes about the collateral damage of cancer treatment.  “Although I am done with those treatments,”, she writes, ” I still feel like it isn’t over. Survivorship is difficult, especially when dark memories haunt us.” This same theme was also echoed in blogs by Liz and Detrice this week.

Terri continues to share information on breast reconstruction on her blog – this week, she covers the topic of restored breast sensation after reconstruction.

An interesting question from Nancy this week, has cancer treatment accelerated the aging process for you?

Obviously I’m slightly biased here, but I loved reading Claudia‘s magical Irish story this week.

Finally this week, Catherine continues to write through the twists and turns of her life – writing that is exquisitely bittersweet.

Until next week,

Yours with love
