Happy New Year Ladies - thanks for the link Jo - very interesting. Good old Hystersisters is also worth dipping in to if you need a bit more supoprt. http://www.hystersisters.com/
Like you, I have found the longer term physical recovery quite difficult. I tried FooFoo Funclub for a while - it is a pelvic floor focused exercise programme and while I think the exercises were good, I don't think I was ready for quite such a 'full on' experience. Might suits others though http://foofoofunbox.com/foofoofunclub/
I feel very unfit and have gained weight too - I tried not to worry about it too much while I was in recovery phase but now that my anniversary is upon me Ithink I really need toget my act together. Of course, developing lyphmoedema has also slowed me down but I know I need to push on through. I have been doing belly dance for about 10 years and my teacher and dance friends keep encouraging me to get back to it but it is hard when your body won't do what you used to do with ease. Got to persevere I suppose.
In terms of work, I also thought long and hard about whether I wanted to continue as I could have stepped back, but I decided that hard on the heels of major stress was a bad time to make a big decision like that. I have found that easing back into work has helped me focus on other things, get a routine going and get the cancer thing out of the foreground. I am very lucky to work somewhere very supportive and I do love my work, but it's definitely not as important to me as it was. (mostly)
So goodbye 2013 and hello 2014. Let's hope its a good un for all of us. x
