I wish I could tell you
About the depth of my pain.
It's almost never ending,
And hard to explain. I wish I could tell you
How broken I feel inside.
My body hurts so much,
But it's easy to hide. I wish I could tell you
I can't function very well;
Difficult to get around,
But no one can tell. I wish I could tell you
How I honestly feel,
But you wouldn't believe me,
That this pain is so real.. #chronicpain#fatigue#cancersurvivor#bestrong

🖤❤ January 2010 vs October 2017🖤❤ Left picture was after being 47 days at the hospital and my 1st chemotherapy cycle; doctor let me go home for a couple of days... Just staying at home, nobody could visit to me, no outside air contact, barely could stand for the picture, Under this little hat Had only few pieces of hair but you know what?? I WAS HAPPY! Happy to go and sleep in my own bed at least for 2 nights, happy to see part of Christmas decoration as was first time I've done it in my own house, happy to stay with my mum and sister with me after 15 months even on that circumstances 💔 .

Årskontroll nr 1 avklarad. Allt såg jättefint ut! Fortfarande frisk! 😃🎉♥
Ok.... my road to recovery started the day I was diagnosed 11th of Dec 2017! -
However yesterday was the first day I had definitive information that what I was doing is working. I knew it was deep inside me as I could see my cough had gone and I felt healthier, one of my lumps felt smaller but I simply did not have definitive results. Plus I found another two lumps on the other side of the breast and one was pretty big about 2cm so I wasn’t sure what that was, maybe bruising from the biopsy who knows I thought. -
So... yesterday I had my MRI scan results. I went in and the doctor said ‘we need to operate and remove your breast’. To which I said ‘But what about the MRI results doctor’. So he explained ‘you have three lumps ‘ and I stopped him and asked about the new two lumps and he explained those weren’t picked up with contrast so they aren’t cancer. Great I thought. Then he said ‘ the 3 cancer lumps you have we can remove. So I stopped him again and said ‘how big are they?’ He said ‘ one is 11mm, the other is 8mm and the 3rd is 6mm but we need to get them out’. What he didn’t realise and didn’t discuss with me is that two of those had reduced in 5 weeks from diagnoses. On Dec 11th 2017 they were : 11.7mm (now 11mm), the other one was 11mm (now 8mm) and the 3rd was 6mm and remained the same.
So although I was healing he still wanted to cut my breast off! Which I refused!
I am over the moon and I will aim for another MRI in 2 months and hoping to have even more progress than this time around. 😊👍🏽 #beatcancer#beatcancersbutt#cancersurvivor#cancersucks#cancercure#cancerawareness#cancer
Ah, there she is. The seven year old me. What would I tell her if I could go back to that day? I’d tell her that she’s so much stronger than she realises. That none of the awful things that she spends so much time fearing ever actually happen. That the ‘awful’ things that do eventually unfold also bring the most incredible gifts. I would tell her that she is lovable and brave and that it’s safe to let life in. Corny but true. (Musings from my hospital chair ❤️)
This is one of my all time favourites. Before I got cancer I had a complete phobia of needles, technically listed on my medical history. I avoided needles at all costs. Never had Botox, too afraid of needles. Never went to have blood taken, would leave the referral sit there for months. I’m talking fainting at blood tests, hitting the deck, elevating legs, hot sweats, having to lay down, veins collapsing , numerous attempts at finding veins- yep I was controlled by my fear of needles. Had to have a friend drive me to every blood test. Gripped!! But not anymore!! No way - I’ve now had over 32 blood tests now, plus 13 rounds of the big Chemo needle and lots of scans and breast surgery! I had to get over my fear and quickly to make this journey bearable. I Slayed the Dragon 🐉 by hypnosis and Releasing the Fear. You know what I discovered on the other side of that Fear? Something infinite and all together fantastic: Love, love of me for myself 💕 #needlephobia#hypnosis#believeinyourself 💫 #grateful#breastcancer#cancersurvivor#followforfollow#chemotherapy#radiationtherapy#breastcancersurgery
There are no truer words than these, for me - because EVERYTHING is possible.
Do what makes you happy.
Are you living a complacent existence? It's never too late to find your purpose and give meaning to your life - everything is possible.
Ich wusste nicht wie stark wir Menschen sein können ,wen wir für etwas kämpfen das wir lieben.....Oft denke ich an die zeit zurück, 2013 hat so einiges beschert, das Jahr hat mit meinem wundervollen Sohn begonnen 14.01.2013 & nur nach knapp 4 Monaten die Diagnose Krebs, ich dachte meine Welt bricht zusammen wie soll man das schaffen, man ist doch gerade erst mama geworden. Option „aufgeben“? Niemals!! Nach zahlreichen chemos & Bestrahlungen bis zur Immuntherapie!Diese Krankheit hat mir einiges gezeigt, wer wahre freunde sind, wer zu einem steht, wer einen Liebt & so akzeptiert wie man ist mit jeder narbe & jedem Fehler & mein Mann war mein bester Begleiter in dieser zeit auch wen er viel gearbeitet hat war er für mich & unser Kind da & ich bin ihm so unglaublich dankbar das mein Mann mich niemals hat fallen lassen,so schwer wie alles war! Früher machte ich mir Gedanken über dinge die sinnlos waren, heute weis ich so viel zu schätzen & bin dankbar dafür heute leben zu dürfen, nach sowas erneut ein 2tes wunder in den Armen halten zu dürfen ist mein Geschenk für die letzten Jahre in denen ich gekämpft habe & ich bin unglaublich stolz meine 2 Kinder groß werden zu sehen, ihre mama sein zu dürfen & jeder dieser schritte gemeinsam mit ihnen zu gehen Lyan❤️Meliah #cancer#fuckcancer#cancersucks#cancersurvivor#survivor#thankful#love#life#lifestyle#mom#boy#love#instagood#insta#instagram#fashion#fashionista#home#f4f#selfie#photooftheday#pic#proud#instacollage#vibes#hair#travel#mylife #❤️ #baby#boy#family
Dear wanita sayangi lah organ kewanitaan kalian
Dan laki laki sayangi lah wanita kalian
Dan jagalah ia sebelum terlambat
Sharing sedikit ya
Buat temen temen kalau ada gejala keputihan menahun yuk segera berobat atau segaknya jaga kebersihan dari sekarang
Jangan sampai datang penyesalan
Mungkin ya .. Bencana ini terjadi tahun 2015
Awalnya si biasa aja
Dibiasain malah jadinya seperti ini
Yang tadinya biasa aja
Coba deh bayangin dan rasain
Sakit yang biasa aja kita kadang ngeluhnya kaya gimana
Terkadang pasti ada rasa putus asa
Tapi ya namanya hidup kan
Sbnrnya si nulis ini cuma mau ngeluarin unek unek aja
Tolong ya rasanya sakit ini tuh luaaaaarrrrr biassaa
Jgn dianggap sepele
Kalau kalian ada kista miom atau apa lah itu
Sampai demam berbulan bulan(kaya yang aku alami)
Sampai kencing darah beberapa kali
Sampai ngerasain sakit nyeri yang teramat luar binasa 😅(eh luar biasa deh)
Coba deh buru buru berobat
Jangan sampe kek aku
Aku si dikasih ini bersyukur
Karna ku tau
Tuhan sayang pada ku
Mungkin tuhan mau aq sadar
Bahwa orang yg selama ini dekat dengan aq ya itu jahat
Tapi ya intinya dari tulisan ini si
Buat laki laki ya tolong dijaga wanitanya
Jangan di khianati perlakukan ia dengan baik seperti kau perlakukan ibu mu
Karna dari wanita lah engkau lahir .. Udah ah cape
Istirahat dulu hihi
Nnti mgkn ya aku bakal tulis hal yang lebih detail dari pada tulisan basa basi ini
Intinya yang aku alami ada di gambar itu semua
Semoga ya semua teman teman ku sehat
Dan aq bisa melawan sakit ini 😊
#smearforsmear#smearcampaign Both important hashtags for you to look at to see how simple having a smear test is and to follow peoples journeys. There are several disappointing things about smear tests and cervical cancer though. Firstly is how many people it affects and how many women it kills. Secondly is the drop in numbers of how many women have actually avoided having their smear test, a test which can save their lives. Thirdly, there are only just over 11,000 posts with the hashtag #smearforsmear Why isn’t more being done to spread the word and battle the fear? Why does there appear to be less celebrity following from those who in many industries have large amounts of female followers compared to campaigns for breast cancer etc? No cancer is any less important than the other, yet cervical cancer and campaigns for it seem to be a lower priority for some. Will it take the death of yet another celeb (Jade Goody) to highlight the importance of having a smear? This week is the second anniversary of my surgery to remove the cervical cancer which spread to my bones, the cancer which 5 months after diagnosis had spread and given me 1-2 years to live leaving behind my new born baby and husband. Every day is a fight but the side effects are worth it to be here today. Don’t delay, go and book your smear test today. #joscervicalcancertrust#cervicalcancer#cancersurvivor#tealarmy#tealsurvivor#getyoursmear
Sometimes people ask us what we are doing with our lives while we live in our fifthy. How do we support ourselves, is it doable and cost effective...etc. While we had to throw down some cash up front, it’s suuuper amazing not having monthly payments (we worked out a simple work trade with the property owner who’s land we are parked on). Our goal in leaving Med school was to have time, energy, and funds to put into our individual and collective dreams, and it has been amazing working together on our projects. I am working on my second yoga certification that will be done at the end of this month (in ashtanga yoga—the first one I did was in power) and I am so grateful for @zachariahholub‘s continuous support in following our hearts to bring both our goals with @sofiaholubwellness and the cancer community a reality while also pursuing his own business endeavors (that I will let him share with you)! So yes, though it hasn’t been an easy transition, it is doable, and we are working ourselves out of the hole while enjoying beautiful views, dream-lining, and practicing #snowga all along the way! #livewhatyoulove
Everything is behaving as it should at my first 4 month follow up since I finished active treatment🙌🙏❤️
My Instagram looks so positive, and that is purely for me. Cancer is not easy. It's a rollercoaster of emotions and I refused to put main photos up on here that reflect my harder moments. I will talk about them in the caption, but I will ALWAYS end with something positive. #positiveperspective#ichoosehappy
These two photos are pure examples of my emotional rollercoaster that I am living.
This is my PTSD: I walked into the cancer agency and immediately it's PANIC. FEAR. SHAME (for putting my husband through another one of my anxiety attacks). The air becomes thicker and I cough. It's hard to breathe in, I can taste the chemicals in the air. FEARRRRR. I sit down for my appointment with everyone who is at least double my age. Everyone looks at us and I feel they think "they are too young." I am weighed, asked about recent doc visits, new medications, etc etc and brought to the White Room... STERILE. CANCER. FEAR. FLASHBACK: bald, thin, fearful, and I was so close to death here. I change and sit on the bed. F**K. The 'what ifs' kick in again. PANIC. FEAR. I start to tear up, my body starts to shake, I rub my thumbs together, I focus on one spot in the room, I take a deep breath and hold the flood of tears in.
Then I feel my husband's hand and hear my husband's voice "Remember this is where you heal. It's time to heal"
The doctor walks in.
I'm ok, I will be ok.

Those are Words to live by......enjoy the small stuff....enjoy the moment...enjoy the sunset...enjoy the kitty cuddles my friends...life can change in an instant. #cancersurvivor#kickedcancersbutt#moveforward#enjoythejourney

2 years NED (No Evidence of Disease)!!! 🎉🎗
The stage 4 aggressive cancer that invaded my abdomen, lymph nodes and bones was gone in just 4 months. You cannot imagine the relief and happiness this brought my family. With 14 months of treatment left to go, this day brought us much hope for a cancer free future. 🎗❤️
I want to thank my amazing family, friends and TeamEllie family for the on going support - I couldn’t have got this far without all of you! 😊
I have scans soon, so please wish me good luck. Bring on 1 year of remission! 💪🏼🎗❤️
