A few weeks ago, I was interviewed by The Huffington Post about dating after diagnosis. It turns out they are doing a whole series on young adults with cancer and the issues we face (fertility, employment, dating, etc). While I’m certainly no guru on dating, I am open to sharing my experiences. I told the journalist a few “first date horror stories” and then shared some about what I have learned since my divorce in 2009. When I spoke with the journalist, I didn’t know who else they were interviewing; however the article includes some of my favorite people in cancerland. The full article is here:
Yesterday I spent four hours chained to the IV pump receiving my chemo cocktail. At the crack of dawn this morning, I had a brain MRI. It was scheduled because I had some headaches which can often be a symptom of the cancer spreading to the brain. My oncologist’s office just called and said my brain is “unremarkable” which is exactly what I wanted to hear!!! Maybe the headaches are due to the crazy changes in weather we’ve experienced. I don’t know what caused them, but as long as it isn’t cancer, I can deal with it.
I have some exciting (and dare I say legendary) things in the works as the year comes to a close. I look forward to sharing them with you. I read each message which offers so much support. Thank you for your loving, kind words that make my heart smile.
