5 years 10 months...

I am currently feeling the best I have felt in a long time.

I can honestly say I am happy.

I am proud of myself.

In a situation which as little as 6 months ago would have left me a useless puddle of tears on the floor, I just handled it. I took the steps I needed to take to fix the problem as best I could and got on with it.

There are still things in life which cause concern and I am not 100% fit and healthy but for now, I am where I am and I can go forward from here.

Life has been throwing me curve balls for a long time now, it is just life. I learn from my mishaps, missteps, mistakes and move forward. I change the things that need changing, I accept the things that need acceptance and I allow the things that need time, to have it.

I am not a fully evolved perfect human being. I’m not sure there is any such thing. I do know I am doing the best I can and trying to be the best I can be.

It has been a long time between posts. I am still involved in the brain tumour world and suspect I will be for life, however, for now I think as far as keeping notes on my progress and recovery, I am done for now.

2017 is just around the corner and brings many new adventures with it.

Stay safe, stay well and be good to each other

5 Years 5 months

I thought that this time I would throw a bit of a timeline in. A reflection over the last 5 years by looking back at the blog posts I made at (n) Years 5 months.

A found thing

I think these were words of wisdom passed on to the beautiful Ebony on her coming of age.

I just found them in a file on my computer (while looking for something else of course). Perhaps there is something in here you could use?

On Being Real

I have read and seen a lot lately about shaming and being slave to or conforming to society. Many of these have in some form been inspired by Amanda Palmer.

The way I live my life is so that I can be my real self where ever and when ever I am. For me some of those things are:

Question time

This morning I was asked by a friend

What would you say to your younger self today? When you look back you must be amazed at the path you have walked and your incredible strength

This is my rather wordy reply

5 years

As of today (14/02/2016) I am 5 years post op.

I am very very very lucky to be alive and I am very well aware of it. There are so many who don't make it this far.

This year instead of my annual trip to take photographs of the sunrise with friends, I will be at Tunes for Tumours an event this weekend to raise funds for the Peace of Mind Foundation.

4 Years 11 months

One to go!!!!! Not really a lot in this blog.

December was a bit crazy as per any other December. There was family, food, and fun. Having the Robertson clan here for Christmas was wonderful. Having Kaitlin, Sarah and Adam here was fantastic.

I've been accepted back into University this year. I have switched to neuro-psych instead of neuro-science. I am really looking forward to it and to being back at Uni!

Next month Tunes for Tumours will be hitting the ground running. We have 4 events over 2 days, all culminating in the art show (with Stormtroopers) You can find out more at There are links there to take you to the ticketing pages. $11.90 per event is not bad at all. That is a grand total of $47.60 for 2 days. Funds are being raised for the Peace of Mind Foundation this all coincides with my 5 year brainaversary on February 16th

Of course there is the BTAA meeting in Canberra as well!
