  • All about Gertrude

    Gertrude is the name we decided to call my cancerous breast hence the title of this blog. Although I had to keep my breast through chemo and radiation due to the nature of IBC - once it 'blew up' it no longer looked like my breast and I couldn't wait to get rid of it. Calling it Gertrude was a way of seperating it from myself. This main page is where I write about the general goings on that relate to Gertrude, there is another page that are more a diary of treatments etc This blog is a public blog so although I am being very honest about my battle with Gertrude I have "changed names to protect the innocent" - because everyone can see it if you write comments on the blog pages please use the same abbreviations for other family member or friends that I do. Please feel free to ask questions if you want clarification because then other people who might have been wondering the same thing can read your question and our answers.

Stalker update

Although it appeared for a while that my pulling the ‘big C’ card had made the guy back off – after a few days I started getting the odd “heya”s and “how are u?”s. I ignored all of them although the one he sent two weekends ago that said “hi beautiful” had me and OH in hysterics as at the time I got it I was in bed with the flu, looking sick with my flannelette pjs  on – only one boob and without my top partial dental plate in (i.e. missing my four front teeth).  I was tempted to send him a pxt of just how unbeautiful I was at that particular point in time but didnt want a photo of me out there looking like that. 

I had hoped by continuing to ignore he would eventually lose interest and get bored enough to leave me alone. However this last week he sent me a more explicit text that I am not going to repeat on here and I thought I can ignore the “heya”s and the “how are u” and the “good mornings” but I do not want to look at my phone and read stuff like that so I rung my cell phone provider and got them to deal with it – they have given him a warning and if he continues to get in touch with me they will report him to the police and disconnect him.

All in all this has been a very weird experience and has made me realise there are some very sad people out there.
