A new beginning!

Well, it is 11:25 on the 31st of December 2012. As I look back on this last year, I do so with pain, distress, relief and love. 2012, the year of feeling every emotion available.

This will surely be one year that I am more than happy to see the back of. It has been difficult to get through, unimaginable things have happened, people have stepped up and in some cases stepped down, I have feared for my life, worried about my family, caused pain and turmoil for those around me, complained about my face (oh so many times) and been up and down like a yoyo. Yet, I am here, in remission, pretty comfortable in my face with my obturator, all things taken into account, and with family who love me dearly, I'm quite lucky really!

I hope that 2013 will be a healthy, trouble free year for myself. And for those of you out there who are in similar positions, I hope that 2013 removes the fears, the sadness and the pain and provides you with hope, joy and a future to believe in.

To all my family and friends - good bye and good riddance 2012... here's to a wonderful 2013!
