Welcome to My breathing room. Who am I welcoming you? I was born in 1969 and grew up in an island called Vaeroey with two brothers. This beautiful island got about 700 inhabitants and is a part of Lofoten, which is famous for its fisheries and the export of stockfish. Lofoten lies in the northern part of Norway. As many teenagers I had to move to get an education after primary school. I became a trained nurse, and after some years as a hospital nurse I took a master and became a perioperative nurse.
My breathing room
In the beginning my blog was called «Hobbies of mine». I wanted to share my passion of life like knitting, weaving and card making and much more.
But then my life took a dramatically twist because I was diagnosed breast cancer in January 2020. I was in shock and my blog became more about breast cancer, therapy and emotions than my hobbies. A living rollercoaster is very descriptive how my life turned out to be. Writing is just one method to deal with a serious diagnose.
I hope you forgive all of my mistakes when it comes to English grammar.
Audio books, mindfulnes, music and hiking have also become very important to me. I needed a place to vent and every now and then someone has reached out their hand to help me. I am so very grateful! The fact is, nothing is so lonely like cancer and the cancer family is large, unfortunately. Hopefully I can reach out to you.
The distraction in my hobbies is essential to me. If not, I get stuck in negative thoughts and I forget to live and that is what my site is all about. Carpe diem!
So welcome to My breathing room.
