Otter, good to hear you got your application in. That in itself shows them you mean business and that you're made of strong stuff. Good luck with it 🍀🍀🍀🍀 at least you won't have to wait too long to hear about it.
Not sure what will happen if I don't get it 😥 think I will be offered redundancy terms
Not great timing but have C isn't ever going to be
Hope everyone is doing ok
fingers crossed with the application .... timing is everything isn't it. Never a great time to be going thru either situation, but combined????
But you are obviously made of strong stuff!
Sending lots of positive vibes your way!
Hope you're all coping well.
Well, another month has gone by, and the December thread has just begun.
I was wondering if you wouldn't mind popping in to talk to the newbies every now and then. You are all doing a brilliant job of looking after each other and any help and support that you can offer is invaluable.
Thank you and hugs to all
Well application is in 🙃 want know if I kept my job until the end of next week just hoping lve got through 2nd cocktail🍸by then
My lady garden is thinning and I'm the same with head I can just pull very gently on my hair and it just comes away in my hand and looks like it has been cut so trying not to comb and wash too much
Hoping it will still be ok for tomorrow then after that if it cames out will just shave. 🤕
oh bless you anadan, I wish I could give you a real hug.
We can do this, it will be a tough 7 days but we will come out the other side. Get next week out of the way and we are 1/3rd of the way thru.
Have you got anything planned post second treatment? I have tried to plan in treats, I find that by focusing on the positive it pushes the negative to the back burner.
But we are all different and no two of us feel the same, what works for me isn't always going to work for someone else.
Is there any particular part that is worrying you more than other? Have you thought about having a chat with your Breast Care Nurse?
Always here xx
I’m thinking about the ladies having their treatment this week and I’m not looking forward to mine next week, feel a bit anxious...
thank goodness for that ....... I was just goggling to see if there was a support line for large bushes we could put you in touch with!!!
Joking aside, this is an utterly crap time ...... but we are all doing it together and we will rock what ever look we end up with 'cos you just don't mess with these November Chemo Girls ...... we have attitude and we aint afraid to use it!!
Just to be clear, the pic is my head hair 😜
and by plucking I meant I pulled it gently, no equipment needed; I think I could have just rubbed it out with a sponge 😃
I pulled this out yesterday morning, but feel much better about it today, thanks to all of you 😘 and laughter last night. I really needed it. Thank you 😘😘😘
You are a brave girl anadan, the thought of plucking anyting let alone my garden brings tears to my eyes!!
I cant upload any photos from my phone, I have to be on the laptop to get the functionality???
I am now sat here in curious expectation!!!
Lesley, glad you're happy that your wigs are now nice and clean and smell better. You did give us a good and much needed laugh yesterday! So thank you for that, don't know where I'd be without all you fab ladies on this forum! I hope your hair holds on until your OH gets back and can do it for you 😬
I'm working from home again today so I'll catch you ladies later! 😊
fingers crossed Bythesea!
Hugs to everyone having their checkups or cocktails today
I am pleased to report that the lady gardens/cat vomit have dried nicely overnight and look really good. I am pleased I washed them, they smell more of me now.... which is ridiculous because I have never used the cleaning products before .... but I am happier and that is all that matters.
Himself is dropping off his spare Wahl this morning, due to his contagiousness, he will be dropping it at the door and leaving The plan was he would shave my hair off when it started dropping but looks like it will be another time for the big girl pants to come out and me to just crack on and do it.
No loss at the moment, which is reassuring .... but we all know it's just a question of time.
Happy Wednesday everyone xx
Good luck today Bythesea and any other ladies that are having treatments, bloods or appointments today! Hope all goes well for you!
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to respond to my message it means so much to know that people care.Have taken comments on board and am feeling more positive.Night night.
you are indeed a lovely bunch, I wouldn't want to be on this **bleep**ty journey with anyone else -
Meesh - I wont, if you dont!!
Aawwww Lesley, we'll all keep you company! Mind you good job it's virtual as not keen on smelly bums unless they're my own 😂🤣😂🤣😂
Just me under the duvet!!
Himself has got a really really bad throat infection which the GP has said is incredibly contagious.
So he is 5 miles down the road for at least another 10 days!
Not seen anyone since chemo day - hence my activity on here ....... I have no other bugger to talk to!
A friend is coming round for dinner tomorrow and I already feel sorry for them.
But I am confident that I will be remembered for eternity as they will be naming a hole in the ozone layer after me!
Cheers Lesley, am lying on the sofa with a Guinness and I'm a celebrity, contemplating the fact that windy chemo 3 cycle will be in the run up & during Christmas. I may forgo sprouts ...
Enjoy your evening xxx
Shi - no not cold capping - I decided early on that there was more than enough going on without sticking my head in a freezer!
Meesh - if you are trying to say that wind gets worse at chemo 3 then I think Michael Fish better put another warning out .......
off for a medicinal Guinness and a dose of I'm a Celeb
night night all
I know! Still haven't found my charger for the lady shave, but feel weird shaving off hair when I'm desperately hoping to hold onto head hair, brows and lashes!
Glad 💨💨💨💨💨💨💨 is a second as I thought I had a leaky value the last few days
No yes I did mean head didn't think you could get hair pieces for downstairs😊
What is it with the leg hair? Its probably the least useful I wonder why that doesn't disappear, just another cruel joke of the chemo 🚂
