Like a lot of women post breast cancer I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. My memory sucks and I have become super self conscious.  I constantly feel as if I have to prove myself to the outside world which in reality I know is rubbish but that’s how I feel. A few of years ago I decided to take the plunge and go to Shocking Pink retreat. It was there that I found out I wasn’t really a basket case and my feelings were normal. I had such an amazing time with copious amounts of laughter, a few tears, great food and a few wines.  I now look forward to going each year to meet new woman and catch up with familiar faces from previous retreats. A bonus of these retreats is meeting woman who become close friends. The Shocking Pink trustees do an amazing job of putting these retreats together. They are truly amazing.
