This is me Lucy Teear and my journey to Healing:
The above picture is Teear (Chris but affectionately referred to as Teear) and I on our wedding day 2011, one year after my first diagnosis for breast cancer.
Right, where to start? I’m thinking the middle, effectively where I am today (assuming I have another 40yrs or so in me!)…..
A 50yr old, wife, mother and newly made grandmother living in a village in Northamptonshire with Teear (my husband) and a lively, downright gorgeous Hungarian Vizsla called Juno (the cider apple scrumper below). Oh nearly forgot Pixie the cat who’s completely neurotic!
I’ve produced two wonderful boys; Paul, born just after I turned 16, we’ve grown, travelled and had such adventures together (I’ll write that book one day!) and Ben 25, football crazy and adorable. The latest additions to the family are the grandchildren Leo, Ivy and Luca who I totally forgive for the “Nana” title as fallen madly in love with the three of them.
I’ve a certificate in iridology and sclerology obtained at the Tyler Tolman Academy in Bali and continuing my studies to become a qualified “HealThySelf” Health Coach.
I’ve spent the past 8yrs healing and rebuilding after extensive treatment for breast cancer, treatment triggering an early menopause at 42 and destroying my skin! Creeping into the night and stealing my collagen and kindly leaving me with rosacea, my once youthful and smooth face became a flushed red pustule face and one I avoided looking at and certainly didn’t encourage photos! It also punctured my once lively libido, leaving it floundering like a deflating balloon after a great party. Not the best dating profile (if one was required, I hasten to add). But what did it all mean, what’s next, do I withdraw from life, become invisible and go down without a fight? Or pick myself up and set out on a journey to solve this cryptic mystery of what comes next and rebuild a newer better me….
So, here I am today a newbie health coach learning new tricks to inspire change, to share natural and holistic principles to healing. So please join us on our journey to discover great style, health and lifestyle ideas… rising like a phoenixes out the ashes (blimey, getting a bit too carried away and passionate!).
We can fill in the blanks as we go along, but needless to say I’m excited to see where this goes!
