good to hear that the anxiety has improved, hopefully they will be able to sort out your joint problem very soon xxx
Just put my washing out, it is glorious here today, I am hoping to spend the day in the garden 🙂
How are you getting on with the chemo xx
I am waiting to have my hysteroscopy date as I have to go in to have it done under a general, the joys of getting old, post menopausal and an old op meant he could not do it on Wednesday, so hey ho.
Coo, it’s as quiet as a church on here....where is everyone? I wonder if you are all camping out at Windsor or something......M
Well have a coldnow so just hoping it doesn’t escalatexx
but glad things are improving a little with youxx
Hey Jill girl
What? You mean to say you didn't go out last time the cleaners were in. Hold on, isn't there some kind of naughty or weird reference to "having the cleaners in". Struck some kinda chord with me - mmm yeh in that case, probably something naughty or dodgy somehow!! Lock all your precious items up and come have a sneaky Sloe gin with me . Let 'em get on with it
I love the Lakes. used to go up 2-3 times a year for strenuous fell walking breaks with my then partner. Plus a number of wonderful Xmas's with my Mum, after we lost Dad 2003, to be amongst good company in a beautiful situation. Stayed at the Keswick Hotel, 6 Xmas' on the trot. Was amazing value in those days, considering fantastic food, staff, service. Became like a home from home. Well worn, relaxed, comfey, nothing posh, totally unpretentious. Good entertainment too. Our intro was me taking Mum for a Mothers Day lunch first. Totally fell in love with the place and booked for Xmas there and then (yeh, had their brochures out for already from the end of that March). Awww, so spesh, lovely memories. Don't know what their costs are like now tho', as they were gradually refurbing out the "well worn-ness". Go and have lunch there with hubby sometime Jill. Lovely dining room, as well as all of the above plusses. Used to also have the loveliest Manageress - Stephanie. Also went up with my girlfriend to celebrate my 50th, the last Stephanie saw of me. I sadly haven't been up to the Lakes since I split with said partner, and then went into the Delly Doldrums. Not because of, but other probs. Didn't help tho'.
Fancy being able to look at the lakeland fells from your house! Am I right remembering that? Am now wondering if it was you who stated you had a liking for Sloe gin? Am I right there too?!!
For some reason, I've had a better day today. Just wish I knew why, I could then maybe catch it and pocket it for future uses. Still need to get them there Melatonin tabs, Jill. Look at the time! I didn't have any sleep last night, that's now the night beFORE, and I'm still up. Gonna crash soon - I hope.
Where's that Belle Belle. You okay flower, if you're looking in
Nitey Nite lovelies.
Lotsa love to all of youhoos, DellyWellyDooDaah xxxxxxxx
Jill, I have good days and bad days. It's still a challenge! Went on a fatigue management course, which was fine, but mainly common sense. Still waiting for my individual assessment, which should be next month some time. Xx
Well this was day 2 and I had a priority lined up for sorting the bedroom, but oh suggested something else and distracted me...so bedroom still a tip...side effects usually kick in on day 3, hoping not too bad this week. Myperipheral neuropathy was very sore till day before chemo...not too bad just now prob due to the steroids.. but we’ll see how it goes,
Do you know you have just made my day reading your post well done you lady, I am so very proud of you xxxx
Well I went to work this afternoon........far too hot for teaching gym! What is going on with the weather?!
Welllllll I have spent the day in the garden and I can actually see the plants rather than all the weeds ) 🙂 about as exciting as it gets for me at the moment, but I am so pleased to report that Colin has spent the last two days sitting on the patio which is fabulous. xxx
Yeh - 5 HTP. That's what 'I'valso tried for a while. And yeh, at night, as isn't just to help produce Serotonin, but Melatonin as well (me badly need ). Isn't it weird then, how it can help you, and didn't me. Exacerbated my sleep, in fact. However - I'm so flippin glad for "you"!!!! As said, I've yet to try an actual Melatonin supplement, as oppo something that helps increase Melatonin production. My reason being the above ref 5 HTP, plus if you don't have the adequate bodily building blocks to produce Melatonin, then better to just try put it in in there in the first place. As you would extra Vit C, A or D, if that makes sense. Another however with me being, . . . due to my Bi-P, it takes me bloomin ages to get round to just doing ANYthing about ANYthing. then if/when do, it's often difficult to maintain it or owt! Have very occasional, very brief and short lived positive bursts. Hey Hooooo.
Glad you're feeling a bit better, flower. xxx
How's you Belle???
Love to all of youhoos
Haven't caught up on all the thread since my last visit,. But noticed 5HTP being mentioned recently.
It's only my own personal experience of, and am very interested to anyone elses. It's a supplement to hopefully "create" Melatonin production "from it", as oppo a direct melatonin supplement, if that makes sense. I've tried it, but it failed with me. Actually kept me "awake"!! Doesn't mean it'd be the same with you. I've tried sooo many natural sleep aids now. The ONLY one I haven't yet tried is "Melatonin" itself.
Shall send this, then catch up further on you all.
Much love to you all xxxxxxx
Great to hear that you are feeling better. I think the a*** kickers is a great description 🙂 🙂 xx
Dear Jill and Helen...yes...beginning to feel better....so grateful for even a few days of a liftxx
thank you so much for askingxx. You are a wonderful gang, flock of sheep, flotilla pillows, Etc was going to say a*** kickers
Well hopefully the dehydration will settle down, and thats got to be a plus that the flushes have improved xxx
Wow I have heard ladies say before about how good they were but didnt realise that they were that effective.
Fingers crossed from me as well, do these things start working immediately? Never tried one to be honest.
