Hi Dawn, I, spookily like many others I have heard about, was diagnosed just before Christmas. Every year I give thanks that I am lucky enough to be here and enjoying life. I usually have the odd treats and make my favourite meal of the moment and spend the day, as per usual, but in a quieter contemplative way. I also remember those who are not as fortunate as me or are no longer with us. Later in the day I remember the things I have to be grateful for since diagnosis like the fact that I have got to know myself so much better, I am far less materialistic, I don’t go through life on autopilot now, I appreciate my family, friends, nature, music etc. more, I know what is important to me now, I have learnt to say ‘No’, I have a supportive Bloodwise family around me now, I could go on and on.
