It makes me so happy to start this blog, because for once, it's not about cancer. I mean, it all stems from cancer, but it is about the journey which has taken me off course. I admit, I did have blogs about cancer, but deleted them. I don't want to do the same. I felt like it was a mistake to do that, cuz hey, it was my story up until this point. For some reason, this point has become my HUGE change in my life. Not the stage IV breast cancer, well it wasn't a walk in the park. It was hard. I was diagnosed almost 2 years ago with breast cancer. My kids were 7 months old and 2 years old at the time. Now, I'm happy to say that they are 2 and 4.
Last year I was diagnosed as a dreadful stage IV cancer "survivor". I just live with it. The reason for this blog, however, is a quest of sorts. Since the disease decided to enter the blood brain barrier /BBB, a tumour decided to settle right in my optic tract. On the nerve? I don't know? Beside the nerve? I don't know? I don't know too much about what is going on in my skull. This is why I'm here, writing to you.
Unfortunately, I've searched and searched the net and have found very little about vision loss and help.
I understand that the brain is supposed to be as complicated as the solar system, but still......I need help.
This is my calling. I'm reaching out. I need help!
There is my story in a nutshell.
I have lost half of my vision. It's difficult, yes, but I'm still alive!
