Is there anybody out there? There is something to report…

The complete lack of updates to my blog since February (remember then?) can be put down to a couple of reasons.

Firstly, and most importantly, I am very well and have nothing to report on the health front. It really is business as usual and as I have probably said before, if I didn’t know that there was something wrong with me, I wouldn’t know there was anything wrong with me. If that makes sense.

Secondly, the blog was starting to get to be a bit of a general diary, which was not the purpose of it when I started it six years ago. With nothing to report as far as the lymphoma is concerned – even less now that I am only needed to report to The Christies once every six months – I was posting more about general stuff. And I’m not sure that people are or were that interested in the day-to-day stuff.

So. That’s why, for the first time in these six years, I have had a couple of months with no posts.

Now, I do have something to report…

I received an email from the Lymphoma Association yesterday asking me whether I would be prepared to present at the forthcoming Annual Conference. I suspect that I have a number 12 on my back, as the meeting is only in two weeks time, but I spoke with the contact at the Association and have agreed to stand there for my 15 minutes of fame. I will be using the blog as an aide-memoire, since the purpose of the talk is to share my journey (NO! NO! – Ed) history and experiences since being diagnosed.

The meeting will, by complete coincidence, be within a couple of days of the sixth anniversary of me realising I had a problem.

Seems fitting somehow.

Now, how many words do I need for 15 minutes…?
