Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

Unfortunately, am still struggling .....last 3 days have been waking up with dread and high anxiety. Having headaches plus the usual symptoms are not helping!! Just resigned myself to take one day at a time!!

Seen my dr last week and he has put me on new medications. He said it will take 2 weeks to work.....so crossing my fingers and toes!

Thanks for asking, Jill.

Really hope that your better days are continuous

Good luck with pip, I see some people have sought assistance from McMillan and managed to be successful...there is a way of Wording things that can help and M are used to that.

We have snow again, but it looks proper stuff unlike yesterday which was the powdery stuff so not looking good 😞  and it is settling.  No sainsbury delivery or bin collection here today

 

Keep safe and warm you lovely ladies xxx

Am at work tomorrow but only until 12.30pm then I am home and not moving, we are forcast a fair bit of snow from around 2pm so I will be well settled.  I think it will be doubtful that we will get our Sainsbury delivery tomorrow night 😞 xx

Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

We have a fair bit of snow that is now freezing and pretty scary under foot - no we have a howling gale - the windchill must be bringing the temps down a lot more .I really hate it when it's like this - I worry about people who aren't as lucky as us and are out on the streets particularly those who can't access hostels because they have dogs .

Yes, jill, well done for getting to the dentist...I love mine, but am absolutely petrified when fillings need doing! 

 

Have always been needle phobic and dentist phobic.

He he, you would be very welcome my dear 🙂 🙂

 

It appears to be much better today, really weird the way it comes and goes, I have had some really bad cramping in my right leg at night on occasions, on the muscle that runs up the outer side of the leg, but again it is not often.  I am putting it down to the tamo as I did not have chemo.  I do have to be careful anyway because I am a disaster and can trip over a feather 😞

 

Was rather hectic at work, I think it is going to be like this until the year end in March with suppliers getting their invoices in, but keeping calm and not stressing as I can only do what I can in a day.

Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

Hello Helena,

 

Wowee, that’s a lot of cooking that you have done to last for more than a month plus for your brother.

Yummy-yummy.....Maybe I should really contemplate moving to Birmingham and self invite to your restaurant......LOL LOL 😜😜😜

 

On a serious note, I have faced this problem about the ankle locking..... sometimes when I stand....even sometimes it happens suddenly whilst I am walking. Was told that it could be after effects of chemo or tamoxifen plus with my weight gain. Its only lately that it stopped.....since I started yoga! Another thing I used to do was to massage my soles, ankles and calves because I also got severe cramps!

Do be careful because I did fall before!!

 

Have a good start to the week.

Huggies wuggies,

Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

Hello Moijan,

 

Ohhh do be very careful when you go out......it’s slippery and you definitely do not need any slips!!! 

Just stay home, Moijan and enjoy the warmth!!

 

Sorry to hear that you have dry eyes. Are you using any eye drops? Found that eye drops containing hyaluronic acid gives better relief than normal eye drops.

Ahhh, everything drys up so badly.....my skin is so dry that it itches.....on my face, it’s painful!! So it loads of creams and moisturisers!!

 

Take good care.

Hugs, Belle xxx

Dont know about that but it has had its moments 🙂

 

I remember when we first got together everyone was saying it will never last as we are sooooo different, but oh how wrong they were.  Life has been a trial over the last few years but we have and are getting on with it the best we can.

 

Sending you loads of hugs and hope you are ok

Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

I'm afraid they can if they don't think I'm going to get well enough to go back to work in an acceptable timeframe . Its rather insulting after all these years, but they have probably done me a favour as I don't think working under extreme stress is very good for you mentally or physically !! I will have to concentrate on getting well for a few months then look for something less demanding.

Jill, if you work in the public sector, you’d likely have a bit more protection, but I’m not sure any employer can just do that to you and certainly not after so many years.xx

Oh yes, rather a lot beef, lamb, mixed game casseroles and a chicken, potato and onion curry.  You should have seen me this morning trying to get it all in the freezer but at least we have plenty to eat for the next month or so.  I do an extra one of each for my brother, that way I can make sure that he is eating well.

 

Well my dear friend, that is the best way to do it.  I have been having a few problems in the last day or so, every time I stand up my ankle seems to be locking up but once I start walking it seems to be ok, very strange, can only put it down to the tamoxifen, but it is not something I have experienced  before.

 

Huggles to you

 

Helena xxxx
