I've tried to do a local search on here but came up empty handed. Does anyone here have personal blogs they regularly update? I personally have started one and I find it so therapeutic, not only to write, but to hear other's stories. I really wish I could hear more from people that are farther out than me, but it seems that most stop posting after treatments and move on with their lives so to speak. I do love discussions here but I typically only use my phone which makes responding hard, etc. (BCO app would be great...mods?) And I think it would be nice to hear one person's story at a time with discussions below...anyone else feel similar? Do you know of any blogs?

I would love to read about people's stories and journey's especially in "life after". Like dating, having/not having children, new normals, and new body expectations. I may cross post this to get a feel for what's out there.

Julia, I agree Samantha is hilarious. I just told her the same thing (since I've been mia from the forum for a bit).

I love you're blog too! That makeup post was on point man. Who knew how brow obsessive we would become? I never even noticed that much in my pre-cancer days. Now I actively look back at my old pictures and flat out mourn who I used to be. Yeah this new version is better in some ways, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss how old me looked. 30 pounds lighter and hair hair hair!

I love that we are all the same age group. It's so hard to find women like us.

@YoungBRCAgal You're too sweet! I NEVER did anything with my brows pre-chemo. Now I'm letting them grow wild and free because I'm happy to have them again!

And I hear you on the weight gain. I wasn't thin at all before, but I've put on about an extra 15 pounds which are going to be terrible to get rid of, I just know.


Just read your blog- don't know how I missed it the first time- and subscribed. You're HILARIOUS and the name is on point!
