Lovewine my mouth has been sore so I went to the docs today and she gave me some medication but advised me one of the best things you can do is swill with bicarbonate soda, upto four times a day. She said its a really good anti inflammatory. The financial side of things are shocking, I work fulltime and earn a decent wage, I moved from a local authority job two years ago which I had been at for 12 years and had full cover of 12 months sick. Unfortunately in my new position and only 2 years service I only had 3 months sick pay. This is really difficult as where missing about £1600 a month. We do have a small amount of savings but really am concerned about things financially. Its something you cant imagine happening and because we own our house and my husband works we dont qualify for anything, unless I can get ESA contribution based. I have therefore chosen to work as much as possible through chemo and just hope I can continue.
By the way ladies if anyone wants any extra support as well as this wonderful site I am a member of a small private FB page if anyone would like to join. The lady who created it dud mention it ages ago but not as many ladies were on the thread. I use both and enjoy having both points of support. If anyone would like the details just inbox me.
Got my wig yesterday for the weekend just incase it all drops, its lovely, my hubbie and son said its better than my own hair !!! I went for a long one and was really nervous it might look cheap but honestly its great. I paid a bit extra as the cap is lighter and softer, all in it came to £220 , pressie from mum and dad.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend.
