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’m introducing  some new bloggers to the weekly round-up this week – Amy who blogs about living with metastatic breast cancer at Amy Heal Thyself, Helen who blogs at Getting Abreast of the SituationSue at A little c Grace at Not So Pretty In Pinkand Olivia, a nurse turned breast cancer patient.

Stephanie recommends art as a healing therapy in her latest blog.

To practice sitting with our vulnerability, we need to tap into it.  Art can help us move in and out of a painful experience, which gives us the opportunity to break down an experience into manageable bits- especially if it causes a lot of emotional pain.

March is Lymphedema Awareness Month and Nancy shares a guest post on her blog written by Carrie.

This week we celebrated all things Irish in the form of St Patrick’s Day – an occasion for Yvonne to reflect on what it means to share an Irish heritage.

So lovely to hear of the magical time Helen enjoyed at a special resort recently.

Rebecca writes of a dramatic Tamoxifen related side-effect she has been experiencing lately. Barbara also writes of the effect of Tamoxifen in her latest blog.

Catherine‘s latest post on hair is wonderfully creative.

Finally this week, it’s a sad time for Audrey  after the death of her mother. Please take a moment to read her blog and leave a comment to let her know you are thinking of her.

Yours with love
