We have the courage to call it fibromyalgia and live with it too


About chemobrainandmore

My name is Heather and I am now 39 yrs old living at the Jersey shore. I was diagnosed Jan 2011 with stage II A breast cancer right after my 36th birthday. Sadly I was married for just a year at the time.I had four rounds of chemo 33 round of radiation a lumpectonly and MANY ,MANY biopsies. As if that was not enough I ended up having a total hysterectomy summer of 2012. And then this past July 2013 I under went a bilateral mastectomy and I am still under going reconstruction. I am a mom, a wife and a survivor! I have had more ups and downs then I have fingers and toes! But through it all I have had a smile on my face and try to laugh my way through it all. I have done two Strides Walk for breast cancer and I am extremely proud of how much I have raised ( I made pacesetter status!) I enjoy laughing and making people laugh, and if my blog can shed some light on cancer and make one person laugh at ,or with me ,then the fight has been worth it. Thank you for reading about my life and taking a ride with me on this journey. Feel free to reach out to me, I love being able to pay it forward and help others!

  1. Thanks for the LIKE. Your blog is cool because we picked the same theme (smile). I can totally identify with what you say here. I stopped riding my bike, because the Fibro made the summer heat intolerable. I was doing 10 to12 mile rides on the weekends and a couple of miles 2 to 3 days a week. i hope you can find other info on my blog that´s helpful and or entertaning as well. You´ve been through so very much. I wish you happiness and PEACE.

    • I like your blog also. It nice to b able to have someone just understand what I’m talking about. So I just realized I have chemo brain , menopause fog and possible fog from fibromyalgia!!! I guess I’m what people call brain dead lmao!!! Trying to now find some humor in this new wonderland of pain. I thought child birth and chemo where bad, boy was I wrong lol although it has not topped the pain from my mastectomy!!! Now that was horrific but I got a pair of new perky boobs for $35 copay :). I look forward to reading and learning from your blog!
