Monday I had my post-operative follow-up appointment. Everything looks good and they will follow me closely every 3 months. My prognosis looks very good so far, but what’s most shocking is that they are not sure if the cancer they orginally diagnosed me with is the correct one. They think it might be something else. The pathologist is doing more tests to figure out what it really is. If my cancer ends… Read More

Last Thursday was my CT scan. Who knew it would be so stressful. On the way to my appointment, I felt emotional. I really want this test to bring some positive news in my life. I was listening to music and tears wanted to come out. The strangest thing was that I wasn’t thinking of anything specific. I was looking forward for this test, but I was also scared of it. This… Read More

This weekend was a little harder than usual. Has we went for a little walk, I was looking at people running, biking and kayaking and I was telling myself that I want to be able to do an activity like that again one day. Of course, with all the uncertainty in my life, I started crying. Every little things made me tear up. There is so much I would like to do… Read More

A Difficult Decision Sending my son to daycare was a hard decision. We didn’t have another alternative and it wasn’t by choice. I had already extended my maternity leave and it came the time that I needed to go back to work. It is harder for me than it is for my husband.

Well, it happened. The news I didn’t want to hear. Two cases of covid-19 have been reported in my son’s daycare.

You do whatever it takes to keep your kid safe, but you know that you have to step back one day so they learn to make mistakes. Once you loosen a little bit, something happens. Your kid gets hurt. You feel like crap. Then you are all over him and you make sure he’s alright and comforting… Read More

Bell Let’s Talk is a great initiative, but it shouldn’t be lasting the time it’s promoted. We should be aware of it each and every single day and do our best to help when we see someone struggling with it. Mental health affects all of us. Sometimes we may not even realize it until someone makes you aware of it. There are a lot more people struggling with this than you can… Read More

I came across this quote and made me think about our current situation at home. Yes we need a job, but is it what matters? I think the quote wants to say, do what you love with passion. I see my husband struggling with happiness due to his job. He really isn’t happy and now his stress level is up the roof which carries everything at home as well. How can you… Read More

Yesterday I experienced my first ever panic attack. I never knew how it felt, but I can now tell it’s not something I like to live. I don’t like going to the dentist and I used to be scared of going when I was younger, but as long as I can remember I didn’t mind so much to create a panic attack. I was getting a filling done at the dentist and… Read More
