    Thank you for sharing this, hope you have a day to rest today and feel better soon. Your words above are so important, and for me resonate on other guilt feelings, I lost a friend suddenly a few years ago and though I know it’s rubbish I often feel inadequate that I’m not doing “more” in my life, being more, because I’m here but she isn’t, but I know I’m doing my best x

    This is such a sad but important post, I can’t even imagine the complicated feelings that are involved but I’m so sorry you feel anything other than happy at being okay yourself. I think it’s absolutly amazing that you’ve set up a page to spread awareness and raise money and you’re so inspiring.

    Thank you for sharing this post. It’s not something I thought would happen, however, upon reflection I can why it would. Your tips will be so helpful for those who are going through the same. 💕

    These are very important actions to take to take a step forward. Feelings are definitely real and it’s hard to think about what’s the right thing to do sometimes. Having friends and family you can speak to help a ton. It is very unfortunate that there’s no solid treatment that can help everyone but the best we can do is hope and try. An act of kindness goes a long way. Thank you for sharing these tips and opening up. Sending you lots of love.

      It definitely wasn’t easy to write. Oh I completely agree, they know what you’ve gone through so you have such a strong connection even if you don’t know them personally. Awh, thank you! xo

    This is so useful to read. Im on the other side of the road, in that my husband, who has been battling grade 4 stomach and bowel cancer, is really struggling with having his first clear scan. I thought he would be elated, but it was like shock, guilt, all manner of emotions came rushing in to him. /I feel I understand a little better, so thank you for sharing xxx

    Although I haven’t been given the all clear yet, I feel guilty because I am surviving and I lost someone who was on the same journey as me, battling cancer. It sucks feeling this way but it helps knowing other people have felt this emotion before! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, lovely blog post, and beautifully written. X
