Jill, have you a 'borrow my doggy' branch in your area.....much cheaper to join than getting a dog walker and you'd end up with someone who would love to have their own dog, but can't....
You hit the nail right on the head, a month ago you would not have even been able to contemplate any of it.
You are not a moaner just a lady who is trying very hard to move forward and you will get there my dear xxx
Dont worry I will keep reminding you 🙂 🙂
Well I have just looked back and I dont know if you realise but you have managed to do all this in a week:
New years eve out to lunch
Short walk and drive
Took son to library and drove back
Got to your therapist and drove on your own
Lunch out with sun and a short drive
Drove to dads and went out to lunch
50 minute drive round your local area, which I think is the longest you have done so far
Pretty good going for a week I would say 🙂 🙂
Great to hear that you gotten used to your new mattress.
You definitely made a lot of progress.....you are much stronger than you give yourself credit for.
Hugs, Belle xxx
Will let you know, Helena on how the kofta turns out!
Ohhhhh wow.....you are making me hungry!!
Ahhhh.....don’t let Delly catch you again, cooking Rudolph....LOL
Enjoy your Sunday.
Huggie wuggies, Belle xxx
Oh mate i am happy to keep reminding you because you really are making progress and on the bad days it is so easy to forget that my friend, as long as you are happy for me to do it
Oh you will have to let me know how you get on. You can freeze them as well once they are cooked and then just reheat in the oven or microwave.
I have got a beef casserole in the slow cooker, a lamb stew in the stockpot and a lamb marinading in spices for me to cook tomorrow. That should see us for another 4/6 weeks. I also got some diced venison as I saw Mary Berry doing a venison cottage pie yesterday and thought I would give it a try.
Jill, if we ever find the magic pills.....we will start a business together. It’s like we have been experimenting and investing anyway.....😜😁
That is fab, 50 minutes drive, thats the longest you have done so far, so well done you. Got everything crossed for you xxxx
Many thanks, Jill, Ann and Helena!
Been reading up on the internet and as usual. too many conflicting researches and info......
Jill, that’s absolutely wonderful, driving on your own....👏👏👏
How’s the new mattress!?
Helena, I got all the stuff to make the kofta.....will be testing my skills tomorrow!!
Take care, Everyone. Belle xxx
Oh doesnt she realise that if there was a pill for it you would have found it by now. I am sure she means well but!!!!
Thats great another positive day yesterday 🙂 🙂
Not sure but I would check with your onc or GP first, there is something in the back of my mind that I might have read if you are taking antidepressants you cant, but honestly I am not sure.
Have a question......Can I Take Black Cohosh to reduce hot flushes whilst on Tamoxifen? Anyone have any idea? Appreciate your feedback.
Many thanks, Belle xxx
Oh gosh.....what a friend!! Most likely, your friend doesn’t know or understand what you are facing and going through!!! If there’s magic pills, please do get some for me too.....😜😜😜
Maybe using Moijan’s swear word day will help too.....😜😜😜
Good to hear that you are better. Don’t worry too much about walking the dog, maybe when the time comes, you will manage!
Have a lovely Sunday.
Hugs, Belle xxx
Well ladies, I was thinking you'd all gone to bed already(I must admit..I'm quite tempted myself) remember I'm on an oestrogen blocker myself now which I pray is working, but I think is making my have sleepless nights and I get tired.
i did kick myself up the backside this pm and walked down the hill to town
(only about 1/4 mile but better than lazing about) I had a large soya decaf latte and really enjoyed that, feels good to get out and mix with apparently normal people...I say that because a guy was shouting to me from the other side of the main road! I ignored him, but in the dusk, it's a little disquieting.
if you are all in bed or noshing and I miss you, do have a really deep sleep tonight and feel refreshed in the morning...(maybe ready to start on Helena's recipe)
love and hugs,moijan🤗💚💚💚
That’s awesome, Moijan.
Initially, Jill recommended the oral magnesium supplements, which I take one tablet, twice a day. Next found out about the magnesium oil, so added on!
For bone pains, am taking turmeric / Curcumin and found that it reduced the level of pain.
Am with you.....it’s really boring, crazy, exhausting to deal with long term illness and it’s affects.....
Maybe the men trying their best to understand but am at loss at how best to handle us and the situations.....
Jill, the magnesium can’t be worn out......Have read that we have to continuously apply for at least 6 months. Some people even put 2 or 3 sprays in their drinks but I didnt do that! Think that our situation was worse prior the magnesium era.....
For experiment sake, I did not apply on some nights and my sleep went back to about 2 hours ......
Jill, I do think men are a different species...some are more tolerant, but I think most of them have a tough time when bc happens...poor souls
**bleep** **bleep** **bleep**
I knew new it would bleep, but after posting..I was a bit scared it might not!
Yes, would you believe on the road, it's F change the traffic lights, b people, s people ,?
(flour. Buttons and sand)
oh is keeping a low profile just now!
Jill, you could suggest a health status exchange with your oh......if it to him, all seems so f easy!
havebeen trying to clear some eternal clutter...listening to old Shadows music on my iPad, yesterday it was 'thriller' mj, today its 'apache' have 17 years of complete junk to get rid of...wish me luck xx
One of the thing My OH always say is that i have to be positive and not indulge in myself!!!! As if I want to indulge in having anxiety, hot flushes, palpitations, etc, etc, etc.....
Although he meant well, sometimes his remarks sets off my stress and anxiety at having to explain myself...
Did your sleep improve last night?
Yes, absolutely dreadful not getting enough sleep. It’s a catalyst for a host of other issues!!! Arrrrggghhhhh
Jill can second that!!!
i too had MRI done for almost all parts including my brains. The worse part is waiting for the results. Hopefully, All will be alright with yours!
Hopefully your OH is not stressing you out ......otherwise, try having a cuppa chamomile tea to soothe the nerves ....😜😜😜
Love your idea of the ‘F’ swear word day. WTF......where’s the food 🤪
Take good care and wishing you great sleep.
Hugs, Belle xxx
Ohhhhh my dearest Helena, you have made me one happy woman!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you very much for your recipe.....really appreciate it!!!
WOOHOOO.......Am so excited in trying this out.......am planning to cook this for the coming weekend!!!
Hope that you are having a lovely day and have caught up with your sleep.
Loads of huggie wuggies, Belle xxx
Isn't it dreadful when we can't sleep...have found three earplugs now so that might help
(I might shove one up my nose as well lol}
on another thread,when we were all getting a little low, I organised a swear day.....I was chatting with a friend this am and we both agreed that the ' f 'word - (short for Friday! )is very satisfying to shout when things are going wrong...a great release of energy...but we can't use that word on here. The mods would frown severely at us!
