That thing that you experienced and was probably one of the most challenging times in your life, that.
Life after breast cancer and the road to recovery, wellness and returning back to “normal” life.
It’s not going to happen, why do we dance around the notion that it will? Women with breast cancer have had life experience and we know that your life will never be “normal” again. You will never be the same again.
We often see the words floating around like it’s this easy thing to come by “Getting back to normal life as soon as possible…” That’s great in theory.
The reality is breast cancer has changed your life forever and your “normal” is no longer normal, because there is fear, doubt and uncertainty. That is followed by gratitude that you lived to tell the tale.
Let’s explore what life and wellness looks like to you…
- What is important to you now?
- What were the lessons or things you learnt about yourself that you didn’t know before?
- What do you want to do now?
- What does happiness look like?
- How can you make that happen?
These are things that only you can answer, we cannot fix what is broken and it’s human nature to want to fix it. Those broken pieces can fall away because what is left is the real you and that is all you ever need.
Creating a life by your design and hand selecting what you may need…
Let’s explore that…
Do you like swimming? Feeling the crispness of the water against your skin as you glide through the water. Stepping out of the water and lying down and enjoy the warmth of the sun on your skin…
That can be tricky after a mastectomy if you don’t have a breast form made especially for swimming, so the breast forms look exactly like your natural breast and it has the ability not to absorb the water.
To enjoy the mind, body spirit connection that Yoga brings or getting hot and sweaty, you can use Activeflow. These forms are not only perfect for swimming and water activities, but are brilliant for all sport and leisure activities.
Having to wear a mastectomy with pockets can be like the feeling of wearing the lingerie available when you need a maternity bra.
With the new lightweight Trulife Sublime Breast form, it gives you the freedom to wear your favourite lingerie brand again. The new technology used in the manufacture of Sublime allows you to wear it with or without pocketed bras because the silicon creates light hold to your skin. It is made of 100% silicon so there is no sweaty plastic outer-layer that feels hot and sticky.
Whatever happiness looks like to you, enjoy that.
