Hello girls.xxx Delly, am keeping my head above water...tho only 3 hours sleep last nightxx
Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful rain....? Love the pics....yes group Hugh
keep meaning to mention ‘Heathers hair’ on here..they are a charity who make headbands with real hair on, so you can wear them under a cap or scarf and you have a fringe,* or even an all round short bob.*
it is free, but as it’s a charity, they like small donation.xx I have two of those myself.*
i realise most of you have lovely full heads of flowing locks, but just in case xx I know some treatments can scare your hair!
I love your pics, that one is sooooo cute, must admit I am so glad this week is over, been a very busy one xxx
Hehehehehe.......Sue, the role of the cat has been taken up graciously by Delly!
Its end of the week and here’s wishing everyone a Lovely Friday, wishing All well and peace of mind. 💐💐💐
Think I'm the cat Sue. Hating all these slobbering dogs - yuck (but secretly liking their snuggles tho' :-))
Hope you're feeling a little, or a lot better today Jill and you can kick a**se with the job bosses for things to work your way.
Keep popping out with the Yoohoos and Whoohoos Belle when you can
Yes..did you get 1 year paid leave, then I year unpaid? They might offer you reduced hours or a different job altogether until you recover fully.
😊😊😊 Thanks Sue for the cheers!,
😁😁😁 Lovely to see you too Helena
🤪🤪🤪 Dellywelly, woohoo!!
💐💐💐 Jill, wishing you better days.
😻😻😻 Gentle hugs, Moijan
Let’s do a group hug
Hello Lovelies (a very early morning one)
Oh Jillywilly, I'm so sorry you're having a tough time of it physically again. I hope you get some help and feel better soon, lovey. None of it helped by your work concerns either, hey. Send Moijan in - she'll sort 'em out, won't you girly!! Sending you a big smackeroo and a gentle looong hug.
Belleybonbon - Whoohoooo. Glad you've come out to play, even tho' I'm missing a snuggle partner under the duvet. And with one of your lovely pics too. Keep popping out, even if it's just to say Hi and a grunt. My tootsies are getting cold now.
Good to see you Sue. Hope you're doing well are you?
Helena - Hello again, my lovely friend.
Think we all ought to get in on Rockstarchics girly N.Y. trip. Any news for you yet?
Lots of love to everyone, Dellywelly xxxxxxxx
Jill, sweetie, we are protected by law when we have cancer, they can’t actually sack you and shouldn’t put pressure on you either...have you got an hr dept? Or a union rep? And your gp will back you up....it really is not on, if they are putting pressure on. You could, if chatting to them say something like, oh dear, I’m feeling that people want me to leave, but that’s hard to do.....they have to demonstrate that they have done everything to accommodate you. Try and get some advice, but try not to worry......as you say it makes everything worse. Xx
i AM sorry you are having those sort of problems as well as bc xx
love and 1000 hugs,
Many thanks for all your care and concern and for missing me......
Sorry that I have been missing as I have not been feeling too well and it has been just duvet days for me....
Am still in woozy land .....
Jill.......really hope that everything will turn out well for you and that things will get better each day 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼
Delly.....hi, hello, yo, 👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼 How are you??
Moijan.....Are you getting your sleep? 😴😴😴
Helena......huggie wuggies to you 😻😻😻
Sue....wishing you well 🌹🌹🌹
For the rest of the Ladies......Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Hugs, Belle xxxx
Awwww, Rockstarchic - I'm chuffingly flattered by your comment. You know it means I'm gonna have to come to N.Y. with you gals now, don't you. Couple of pairs of thongs (don't do knickers any more, must be my age!) and socks, and that's me packed. Whilst your off gallavanting elsewhere, the only reason I ever want to go to N.Y. is to go to the Met. gallery/museum, the Guggenheim and see the Chrysler building, unless you want to see 'em too, that is. That okay?? Joking aside. Oh yeh, Golly RSC, losing your friend - that's one horrible upsetting kick in the teeth from this ba**ard disease. I'm sooo bloomin sorry. I'd rather forfeit myself than any of my friends be lost. I'm not surprised you're having a wobble, sweetie. For flips sake, you're gonna have to keep us posted
Hi Jill and Moijan - It isn't that you're life just goes on pause, is it. It's that your imagination goes into overdrive, thinking all sorts of things, until you get that call or little note through the door. It's a bummer.
Am worried about BelleBelle. Shall we bombard her p.m. inbox with loving messages, until she submits to coming out and speaking?!!!
Love to everyone
Golly. This thread is coming ‘threadbare’ lol.
hope everyone is just enjoying themselves too much to post?
Ahhh Rockstarchic, I assumed you were one year on, as you say, your friend’s recall hasn’t helped.
I’m with you on the holidays, we’re off shortly & are also going to NY later this year. Have a fab trip.
Anyway, 🤞it will be fine!
Thanks for your reassuring words, Delly
Hi Rockstarchic - A Warm Hi from me.a
Are you a newbie to the Forum, or just this thread? If the former, you might find some of the other threads in the Coping with Fear and Anxiety section/area helpful too. To be able to get some gen and support from on those as well. The more threads, the more support and info from fellows. My BC dates back to 2006 and 2007 both mastectomies, so no need for ongoing mammo's for me. But I used to still have yearly physical check ups from the consultant for the first five years, of my chest, scar and armpit areas, and I used to get very upset before and by them, them being a reminder, just when you're beginning to more settled about the whole initial nasty experience!! But afer 5, I was signed off, and I have to say, it took me to about year 7, that I just stopped worrying about any of it any more, and just thought, if it happens, it happens, and there's nothing I can do about it. So I'd gradually stopped thinking and living under "What if" and didn't think about BC every day. I get very upset for other people going through it, but I no longer relate their upset and worry to myself, if that makes sense. I do remain healthily vigilant about anything weird that crops up, but not to the point of being psychotic. My fingers are crossed for you girl and you go have an abfab girly hol in NY - Wow
Please let us know how you go on results wise, will you
Lots of love
I sympathise, I’m also waiting for mammo results, it’s 2 years for me.
Understandably, you’re just anxious at the mo for a very good reason, as of course, those feelings do re-emerge around appointment times.
I manage it by telling myself that there would even less likely to be a problem after treatment & if on the off chance something turns up, then the sooner it is dealt with the better.
Anyway, all should be well, it usually is & as ever it’s the uncertainty that’s the worst bit.
I do hope it comes through soon for you (mine are due this week, I think) & then we can both move on again.
I remember the radiographer saying that from her experience, anxious feelings are usual for the first one or 2, then it tends to resolve in the years thereafter.
Yes we could try out all the words...but we are ccs would they forgive us for saying pissing and arse?Thank you anyway....xx
Jill, even if you are unlucky enough to get the flu...keep up the first defence...it still checks it a bit.
ah, a good excuse to sleep in the other room, or banish him to itxx
Thank you Jill. Had first taxol yesterday...wet myself thoroughly this morning after getting out of bed! But have given THAT a big kick up the backside hopefully.....I am glad to hear from you sweetie....and I hope you and Bell are feeling better soon xxx
Della....and when did you last get or give a kick up the backside?and who would to like to give one to?
You know what ladies, when I started joining in this thread I hoped to hear about all kicking up the backsides which were going on...have any of you done that yet?it would so cheer me up to hear that say Belle or jill
Made arrangements to exchange a literal kick up the backside every month xxxx
