Usually I feel like my bed is my little safe space where I can curl up and rest but sometimes it feels like an island I can't escape from. I can get so exhausted that there's nowhere else for me to go.

I have a collage on the wall that a friend of mine made with, "DREAM", written on it in silver glitter. I also have a print from Art and Ghosts, my painting and a photo of a girl who went to my university around the same time as me. She was a blogger that wrote until her last day about living with a double lung transplant. The photograph is so beautiful and inspiring.

At some point in one of my travels to my oncologists I managed to get a nice duvet cover and another time, an antique bed for $30. I've clocked a lot of miles here (not that way! {unfortunately}), might as well have it looking nice and feeling comfy. Still sucks to be so tired that I can hardly move. Luckily that is less and less all the time.

Hi Baldylocks,
My name is Liz and I have been following your blog for a while now. I am sorry that life after cancer is so difficult to adjust to. I suppose it's hard to explain an empty resume but to expect it to be full is unreasonable. You will be alright and you will find a job and you will feel a lot better. Keep on writing and we will keep on reading. Perhaps you might be able to eventually compile the posts you've made and turn them into a book.
That said, since your blog is a great resource for someone going through cancer I wanted to reach out to you to see if you were interested in a new online social support network (that I am the community manager of!) called I Had Cancer. It is a new and free social support network focused on connecting people based on experiences with cancer so that they can easily communicate with one another and share information. I would love to tell you more if you are interested, so please let me know! Because I was so struck by your writing I would love to send you an early-access pass with extra invites for others you may know going through this journey.

Either way, thank you so much for your writing. Take care and best regards.
If anyone is interested in I Had Cancer please email me.

I started on COPD Herbal treatment from Ultimate Life Clinic, the treatment worked incredibly for my lungs condition. I used the herbal treatment for almost 4 months, it reversed my COPD. My severe shortness of breath, dry cough, chest tightness gradually disappeared. Reach Ultimate Life Clinic via their WEBSITE . I can breath much better and It feels comfortable!
