I was a spoilt brat before I got cancer.

I was a spoilt brat before I got breast cancer.

It's true. I'm not being hard on myself, or beating myself up, I'm just stating the facts.

The whole world revolved around me, I took everything for granted and all I really cared about was was what I looked like.

I cringe admitting this to you, but it's important that I do.

I had an eating disorder for many years, and during that time I would often say "I'd rather get cancer than get fat."

And the universe most definitely heard me.

My name is Saskia and I am a breast cancer survivor.

Before cancer I was one person, and after cancer I became somebody else.

I became someone who is literally 180 degrees from the self centred impulse queen I was before.

And maybe the post-me I am today does have wonky tits with heart shaped nipples, and her hair isn't as long and sexy as it once was...but I wouldn't go back to the pre-me for all the money in the world.

No really, I mean it, not for all the money in the world.

Pre-me had designer shoes & bags, went to the pretentious cool hang outs and drank champagne out of the bottle.

Post-me doesn't have those things, do those things and doesn't want to either.
