A woman who had been dating her husband of nearly 20 years found out that she had been diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2015.
“He asked me to come down to the house and pick him up,” Ms McLean said.
She was diagnosed with the brain tumours when she was a teen and was unable to give birth until her late 20s.
“I just couldn’t be there.
I just couldn, I just had no confidence,” she said.
“It took me so long to find that voice that was there and that was true.”
Ms Mclean said she had no idea that her illness had been brought to light until she visited her GP’s office in August.
“The first thing she asked me was, ‘Are you ready to get tested for this?’,” Ms McIntyre said.
“She said to me, ‘Well, what do you think?
Are you OK?’
“So I’m thinking, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ “
And I thought, ‘This is it’.”””

It was a huge relief to be able to tell my husband that I was OK.”‘
I was on medication for 12 years’ The diagnosis changed Ms McIntrie’s life.
“As soon as I saw that the doctor had confirmed my diagnosis I was just overwhelmed with emotion and it was hard to put my mind back to anything else,” she told news.com.au.
“There’s just a lot more going on there.” “
Ms McIntry had to make several trips to the hospital for the brain scan. “

“One of the things I noticed was that I didn’t have a lot on my plate,” she added.
“All the things that I’d planned to do, I could no longer do them.”
She was told to stop eating meat, dairy and sugar for six months and take herbal supplements for two weeks.
“When you’re on medication you have to really think about everything that you’re doing, how you’re going to manage everything and how you are going to deal with everything,” she explained.
Ms McIntries’ first surgery was in November, and she now has no idea how long it will take her to complete her treatments.
“If you’re not careful, it can take months and months to get your body to work again,” she warned.
“You’re just hoping that when you get back to normal that you will be able, and I would say I am very confident that that will happen.”
‘It’s the best day of my life’ Ms McIntyrnes’ husband, a businessman, has since moved out of the home, leaving the couple with three children.
“For the last year, he’s been really happy to be separated from me, he was just really sad and really sad about it,” Ms McGuire said.
Ms McGuie’s partner, a nurse, has been her support system throughout.
“She’s been there for me every step of the way,” she says.
“But now she’s going through the same thing.
She’s not going to be here anymore, she’s just not going back to the same person.”
Ms McGuiet says she has been told that the only thing she will miss is being able to talk to her husband.
“At this point in time, it feels like my life is about to come to an end,” she lamented.
