This Monday was my third chemo, which marked the half way point of my treatment. Three down, three to go! I find this week was a bit harsher on me than the last cycle of chemo. The nauseas were more intense. All week, I didn’t feel so well. One day, I actually slept 14 hours just to go pass the nausea stage. During the first week post chemo always makes me feel… Read More

A big part of my life, I didn’t know my purpose in life. Now that I made peace with myself and decided to stop comparing myself to others and be happy with what I have, now that death is threatening me, I pray for my life. I ask myself so many questions and the main one is “why are you giving me something so beautiful and precious and you’re threatening of taking… 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

The past weekend was great! For us in Canada, it was a long weekend. Yes, I was still feeling the chemo effects, but I was feeling good enough to go on a small walks here and there. When you have a child, you can’t just stay at home all the time. Our son would just be a mess. So we went for short walks at places we never been or that me… Read More

So my hair has started to fall. I feel naked. I feel like a little chick with no feathers. I look at myself in the mirror and and I hate what I see. This will take a while to get used to. Many people mentioned that I look good bald, but it’s hard for me to believe it. It’s like a lost part of me. Thank goodness that hats and wigs exist…. Read More

With COVID, you try to limit your exposure as much as possible. Who would have thought a side rib pain would turn someone’s life upside down. Well…it did for me.

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. If I was given the choice and that we could have afforded it, I would have stayed home with… Read More

Sometimes it takes a while to realize some things and it’s better now than never right? In the past few weeks, I have been a little bit off. I made mistakes, forget to do things, been frustrated with things I used to be able to do and learn with ease and now it is just not going as well as it used to. Sometimes I forget I’m approaching the 40’s, I am… Read More

Hello everyone, It’s been kinda slow at work today and one of my colleagues sent me this article which I found goes hand and hand with what I wrote yesterday about being ourselves as well as an older post about how technology is becoming a dependance. This article is really good! It talks about the way people are putting themselves on the…

Strength is a powerful word. Some people need more than others to go through life. You need it to move forward each day in this world of chaos and uncertainty. Each day is a new day and we must be grateful to be living it even if things are not the way we were hoping for. The time is ticking not knowing when it will end. Enjoy the moment now and live… Read More

When you look around in society you notice many people, but how many of them do you actually tie no prejudice or assumptions to? It’s hard wired within us to make assumptions, but it can often be a limiting trait. Here’s how it works. You see a ferocious dog with extremely sharp teeth, is fear an immediate response for most people? Probably, yes. There’s sufficient grounds…
