Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Happy New Year to all of you and a positive one for everyone - as long as we don't think about the orange man with his finger on the button!
Thank you for all the care and support. Clair, I love Lyme Regis - it remains the only place I can beat other half at crazy golf! Xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Hi Delly - Lesley

Well Delly - you are booked in! and I take the photos with my iphone..

Lesley - yes I was more than lucky when I found this place three years ago - it is exactly 3 years since I first viewed it and said - can I please rent it. It cartainly is the most beautiful place I have ever lived and I do count my blessings. Through this horrible year - it has given me much strength.

The sea is about 30 minutes drive away - and, of course, it is the busy south east coast. But if one knows where to go....you can still find some more natural beaches. No sand here though - tough on the feet, lol - mostly pebbles...

Onwards and upwards!!!

Hugs

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Sue, the view from your window, really?  How lucky are you?  The view from mine is a road, street lamp and identical houses opposite,  mind you, in the distance I can see up the hill to the woods.  Lyme Regis looked stunning, I so envy those of you near the coast, always been a dream of mine to live near the sea.

 

Yes, Delly, himself may well be the cause of my bad heads, but I love him anyway, well, most of the time, sometimes.......

 

I too am about to slip into something more comfortable and get some food going.  As we're staying in tonight I was planning on either a lazy takeaway or cooking something really special, but I fancy salad, yes really, so got some nice salmon and prawns, fresh crusty wholemeal bread and tons of salad.  Bubbly is chilling in the fridge but not sure if I even fancy it, might see 2017 in with a nice cup of tea - now I know I'm  getting old!

'Ello my Darlins   (<<<shades of Charlie Drake there, for those of you of the fellow age to remember)

 

Helena - glad you had a better night and tour tubes are a bit clearer. I'm not adverse to snotty hugs, don't care so here's one back from me. And thank YOU too for supporting ME.

Clair - Ha ha ha, thought I wouldn't notice that you'd replaced your avatar with one of my favourite Muppet characters, Can't remember his name, is it "Monster". No where near as attractive tho' petal. Lovely piccie - looks like Lyme - shades of French Lieutenants Woman.

SueWifey - lovely fireworks and thanks for the New Year message. Have just sent you a looong email

lusciousLesley - I can't help thinking and feeling that your hubby may be the cause of all your heads. Perhaps you ought to swap him for a more organised one, who's less of a headache!!  Smiley Very Happy Gawd, what a stressful day you've had

Well, I went straight up after my last post 1.30 ish, zonked out through till 10 ish, but still woke up tired. But then I'm not getting much fuel in so bound to have an effect. Did have a good munch on hummus, celery, garlic stuffed olives and piece of crusty bread throughout the evening. Finished the whole tub of hummus. Had yoghurt withOUT the prunes this morning tho', as I could have powered a whole town with the amount of methane gas produced all day yesyerday!! Ha ha, just as well I was on my own me thinks, cos naked flames or candles and there'd definitely have been an explosion!! Horrendous wind. Anyway, that's enough.

Decided I'm not going to get glammed up and saunter down to the nice local 800yds down the road. I know the young couple Becca and Tim who run it, along a few people who frequent it, tho' I haven't been in since May. Was made to feel very welcome by everyone when I first moved here. They have "intelligent" pub quizzes, science and philosophy groups meet there, so it attracts some interesting and "nice" locals, as oppo to other of the town pubs. Plus its own little 25 seater cinema upstairs, where they show recent releases, old ones and alternative type films - all for free. Yeh, I know, good innit. But it all keeps pulling the punters in, when some pubs are struggling so much to keep open since the smoking ban and price of drinks going up.

Have decided instead, to have a restful, peaceful, AND an alcohol free New Year for once. Not interested in it at the mo. Doubt it'll last long though. None of which will do me any harm and it's more important I take care of myself with being under the weather. It's only another date in the year, after all, and I can't muster up the energy or enthusiasm. Am not at all bothered, miserable, or feeling sorry for myself about it. Got loads of dvds I haven't yet watched, will call a few people and most importantly keep munching at things.

 

No doubt, I'll catch a few of you on here tonight to raise a glass of juice and fizzy water to so will have bubbles.

I echo all of your feelings about what a fabulous group of women you are, have certainly all been so incredibly supportive, helpful, soothing, mopping up tears - some of which have been through LAUGHING so much. I feel I've made some really good and lovely friends. I really can't thank you enough, you know. Oooooo, am getting all wet eyed, such an emotional Dellycat.

 

So a VERY HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOUHOO'S from DINGDONGDELLY.

 

With Loads and LOADS of love. 

Adele  xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxHeart

 

**Ps. Ann's the "Hug of the Day" tomorrow. You listening Ann. Think that just leaves me then and I can start all over again then - yerrrr nice xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Afternoon ladies

 

just wanted to wish everyone a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR before the madness of it all begins. Thank you for all your advice and support on here, you have helped me through some difficult days and weeks. I am very grateful. 

I feel like today is a momentous day. It's the last day of one hell of a s**t year and I'm amazed I've got here in relatively one piece.....ok a few pieces then held  tentatively together with glue. It's been a bit of an emotional morning with hubby and I both declaring 'We made it' and now we must look ahead to 2017. I know between his work and my Mums health, we will have challenges ahead next year but I have survived this so onwards and upwards it must be. 

 

Have a a wondeful new year lovelies. I'll check in later to see how you are all doing. It'll be Harry Potter and a glass of baileys for me! Living the high life heh?!!

love you all

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Hello lovelies,

we had a walk around Lyme Regis today and it was really warm and just what I needed . 

 

Lesley I always say my hubby is more work than the kids I've always got to remind him to take his keys in case I go out then I get a call saying I can't get in I took the wrong keys ! I give up ...  

Sorry to hear about your arm and headache, I know you said you didn't have any cranial osteopaths near you it's such a shame . 

My tamoxifen is the teva brand and I'm lucky it hasn't changed yet. I have suffered with depression before many years ago so I worry it's returning . 

The counselling is through the breast care team, it's a charity called we hear you and you can have the appointments in person or on line. I emailed yesterday and they're shut until next week so I'll see what's it's like. The web site is wehearyou.org.uk have a look and see what you think xxxx 

 

Helena the day started off really foggy but cleared quickly then it turned into a beautiful day I had to abandon my hat and gloves at 1 point πŸ™‚ 

 

Im going to do a buffet tea get into my pjamas and just chill out with the family . 

I'll be raising a glass to you all and want to thank you for your friendship, support and love .  What a year we've had or longer for some of us . it's wonderful that we can be there for each other on our good  and bad days. Like Helena said something very lovely has come out of all this . 

I don't know how I'd manage without you all xxxxxxx

Lyme Regis today xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Sue, that's very interesting, thank you.  I'll mention that when they call me to make the appointment.  I have have trouble in both shoulders pre BC, frozen, tendonitis, fluid plus a bit of calcification on left side.

 

 

Well, 2016 is not going out without being a hassle.  This morning got up with a thumping head (no change there) and Himself greeted me with "I've lost my mobile". Last seen/used was to call a taxi from town yesterday afternoon.  Rang it, no reply, rang taxi office, not there, phone Virgin and asked them to put a stop in HIS number.  Went into town purchased a new mobile, popped into pub (was on coffee Charys, honest) and a friend there rang his number, taxi office answered, dashed up to office, retrieved phone, got money back on new phone but not until I argued and argued.  Then discovered his phone was still working but mine was not!  They had blocked wrong number.  It's taken me ages to sort it.  Honestly it's like having a child, few weeks ago he lost his keys.

 

Thats my whinging over, well for now anyway.  It's grey, damp and misty here in Bucks.  Wishing you all a lovely New Years Eve, though Im sure I'll be back later, just can't keep away from my gorgeous girls for long xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Hi all

good morning - very, very foggy down here in East Sussex.

Lesley - are you seeing a specialist physio re your shoulder? The reason why I am asking is, that initially it was though I might be developing a frozen shoulder, too. I called my BC nurse and she made a specialist referral to the rehab unit in Eastbourne to a specialist physio. And it turns out that I have cording in my arm pit. The shoulder pains, etc. came about as I was, unknowingly, compensating for that restriction. So now I have a specialist massage to start relieving the cording and some excercises, too - to undo the damage my 'compensating' has done. 

Clair - just wondering - do you have a Macmillan Centre anywhere near you? The standard NHS counselling may not necessarily help you, as much as you may like. My Macmillan centre, rcently opened in Brighton, has specialist counselling for people with a cancer diagnosis. And it is free and not limited in time, as the NHS services often are. I, too - have the knack of breaking down - however I also found out, that a specific brand of my hormone treatment made everything much worse. Since switching brands - I am much better and my low moments are far, far fewer. So much so, that I am seriously considering not to start with the counselling at the Macmillan centre. 

For many of us today is a day of reflection - how we started 2016 and what happened through the year - 

we all have been truly amazing through the year, coping with what we had thrown  at us.

Hugs to every single one of you - snotty nose or not - 

Here is to a Happy Healthy Positive 2017!

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Phew, all ok, Im such a worrier.  My sister arrived back at Heathrow yesterday but spent the night at an hotel and was travelling back to Wales today on a coach.  Was happily typing away on here with news on telly and it came up about a coach crash on the M40 at Oxford today, looked at at telly and saw it was a Heathtow coach.    Phoned her house phone and mobile, both went to voicemail.  She's just phoned me back, she dumped her cases, jumped in the car and went to pick her dog up and just got back, now BREATHE.  Why do I always think the worse?  I'm such a panicker. Think I need a glass of vino but will settle for tea.

 

Beth, my boob and surrounding area went purple/maroon colour after rads, looked and felt horrific but after about 2-3 weeks it slowly got a bit better each day, nipple took much longer though, still not 100% though feels ok.  I was lucky because it was summer so could sleep with it completely uncovered airing, window wide open and cool breeze blowing on it which I'm sure helped it.  Xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Bethy-Boo - Awww flower, I seemed to have missed your posts today. Heck, I'm sooo sorry to hear you're feeling sick, sore, and starved of energy. Do you think it's still after effects of the rads??   It maybe due to some kind of infection. Perhaps you need a blood test doing darlin. xxx

 

Marydan - Did you pick your "Hug of the Day" today ??

Helena - Use it on the areas that are red, hot, and sore. You need to put it on at least 3 x a day to keep the skin cooled.

 

Lotsa love, Dellywelly xxxxxx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Clair - Glad you're getting some help, hope it all helps. Piccie - yerrr nice. An attractive lot aren't you all.

Janey - Poor poorly lovey. Sorry your suffering. And yes, thanks on Mental Team response, appointment booked for 19th, waiting on a letter of details and confirmation. Guess it'll be for an initial assessment, but  I've ordered a bright blue straightjacket in readiment!! Smiley Wink , thought it would suit me better than the usual white.

Lesley - Hope you sisters not involved in that nasty incident.

 

See you all soon flowers.

Lotsa love,  Delly  xxxxxxxx                       LORAC/Carol for a Hug tomorrow ??

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Beth, your skin problems from rads sound horrible, have the rads team said that's okay? Dark purple sounds worrying. Are you about a week and a half after finishing, hopefully things will start improving soon. But bless you, having this right over Christmas as well. And I hope your mother is doing okay, no more hospital trips.

 

Clair, I'm glad your doctor is being helpful, I'm beginning to feel like crying all over the doctor is the new normal. 

 

Polly, hello, glad you came by. I think my neighbour was surprised that she started crying as well, we were in that stage of comparing notes, so it took both of us back to how it felt getting the diagnosis. It obviously still feels pretty raw to her, so I feel like it's okay for us to find things a struggle sometimes. This is a long road really.

 

Helena, glad the aloe vera is working so well, it's good to find something that works before things get too sore.

 

Lesley, I'm sure you're not a heart sink patient, and anyway, it's not your fault, you don't choose to have chronic pain and problems. It's just such a shame you have to keep putting up with it. Hope the night sky is relaxing, it sounds such a lovely idea.

Lesley21

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Oh Clair, you poor thing, so glad your doc is doing something to help.  I'm pretty sure my gp sees me as a "heart sink patient" I know that phrase from when I was a practice manager, docs heart sinks when they see your name on appointment list.  I go, and have gone at least once a year for about 20 years about my headaches.  Now it's those, shoulders, sinuses, The "thing"on my arm and the hot flushes a couple of times, plus I went with bad burns and rash after finishing rads.  She doesent know what to do with me except offer me painkillers, nit helpful!  Hope you get a response as quick as Delly did, guess it depends on what area your in.  I think you'll enjoy you pink bubbles tomorrow night.  We can all toast each and send out.

 

Oh F, just watching the news and seen a coach on the M40 from Heathrow.  Got to ring my sister now, she was travelling on one today

Charys - Huh. 'I' don't like your joke at all. How would YOU like to be associated with the "Squ*ts" !!! 

DizzyDarlin - and PollyP- Awww, I'm sorry you got upset. I still do after 10 yrs. Doesn't matter though does it, we are only human and it's a massive trauma and impact on both our bodies and minds. 

Don't know what''s going on with my posting, probs at the mo'

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Hello lovelies and Polly,
Well I've given in and contacted someone about counselling, after blubbing all over the dr today he insisted that I need to talk to a professional and gave me some tablets to help me sleep.
Dizzy we haven't been to maiden castle for years it's lovely up there.
Hope your all feeling better soon sending lots of hugs to you xxxx
I've never really celebrated new year but as I'll be glad to see the back of this year I'll raise a glass or 2 of pink fizz my sister gave me when I finished rads .. I didn't fancy it then !
Beth how do you get on with sports bras ? they can be more comfy and if you can't lift them over your head you can step into them and pull up πŸ™‚
Lesley I'm like you I couldn't eat and still find I just don't fancy anything I got so fed up with everyone I met saying oh you've lost weight I can see it in your face I try little and often and I've even thought of complan. Has anyone else tried it?
Delly I've changed my pic for you without glasses this time !!!
Lots of love and hugs Clair xxxx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Glad you popped in to sign the register Delly, was getting concerned about you.  Hope tummy settles soon.  Difficult to eat when you haven't got much of an appetite to start with (which think you said) so makes it worse when you feel queezy.  Also you also said you haven't much to spare in the weight department.  When I was first diagnosed, surgery, start of rads I had real trouble eating, and as I didn't have any surplus became quite underweight.  All back now, plus a but more, but I had someone kept nagging me and putting stuff in front of me, so watch it, keep eating, little and often.  Right lecture over, it's not even if I know what I'm talking about.

Hi all
Just wanted to say dizzy that I can so associate with your reaction when talking to a neighbour. I did it myself when like you I thought I'd 'got over it'
the saying it out loud to a new person was quite overwhelming.
You all give such light in this sometimes dim time, humour and support.... keep up the good work.... You've all done very well ...to coin an old are you being served phrase!

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Hellooooo Scrumptiousleys,

Just a quickie before I've caught up.

 

Marydan - I'm late with my "Delly's (((Hug))) of the day" for you, which means you've my arms attention for the rest of the day. Hope you're feeling better today.

Helena - Hope your rads went ok and that you're not too sore with your back and skin. Thank you - I do feel a bit better tum wise today, just terribly washed out.

Lesley - I hope the cortisone does the trick for your shoulders. Can take such a long time and persistent execises to sort frozen shoulders. "Wifey's" got one at the moment too. What's up with you all. Glad you had a +ve response from hubby on the star projector.

Managed to get some Greek yoghurt with apricots, prunes and nuts down me for some energy + find yoghurt calming on the stomach. Can only take things in small quantities at the mo and it's got to be tasty and easy to go down, so I'll have some hummous in a bit.

See you in a short while

Hi Janey

 

ive been taking tamoxifen for two months now and other than disturbed sleep and the occasional flush, everything else has settled down. I've been feeling nauseous for two weeks now, coinciding around about with rads finishing. Think I'm going to go and see my GP next week for a chat. 

 

Roll on 2017! Xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Hi Beth. Sorry I can't remember if you have recently started hormone treatment? For the first month I felt very nauseous and had an upset stomach. Thankfully this has now passed but I wonder if connected? Fatigue is rotten and I hope you've got some vigour back soon. Xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Afternoon ladies

 

still can't get rid of this nauseous feeling all the time when wearing a bra. Getting me down now. Bought some ginger tea this morning so see if that helps at all. 

Skin is changing and is now dark purple in large parts, especially around the SNB scar which looks like it's about to peel too. Again. The smallest activity is leaving me totally worn out but trying to push through it or I'll never cope back in work in a few weeks. Ho hum. 

Slept a bit better the last two nights and when I can't sleep I'm planning in my head what we will do in the years ahead so not to waste any of it on rubbish. Life is too short and too precious. 

Hope everyone is ok. Helena - third of the way through today. Rampaging through them now!

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

I love being a fluffy! 

Very unusually we will still have two of the children home for New Year, it's usually just the two of us and we're very dull, stay home, watch a film or something, see the new year in and go to bed. We have to stay here, not that I have the slightest desire to do anything else, but Daisy is really frightened by the fireworks so she needs someone home to tell her it's all okay. It doesn't help that we can often hear shelling here from the MOD range, and sometimes if we're in the woods it sounds like the tanks are about to come bursting down on us. So it's all a bit tricky to understand when you're a bit deficient in the brain department...

 

I'm another lover of Christmas lights, I'm all for anything cheery in the blackest days of winter. We keep saying we'll get some proper lights in the garden, so maybe 2017 will be the year. A spotlight up one of the trees or something would be nice.

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Good afternoon fluffies! Helena I had 5 boosters when I'd originally been told 15 only; no discussion at all or reasoning. Only thing I could find anywhere is that they're given if you're under 50 and I'm 52 in a few months! Sorry my missives have been short and sweet. Have found it difficult to manage all the family demands without spending spare time dozing. At least I can rule out meds, as now full blown poorly and taken to my bed while others go to Cornwall. Lemsip working some magic and enjoying Brontes dramatisation. 

Thank you for comments on photo. Bizarrely it was 2 years to the day since we had taken the same shadow picture in the same place. That one was printed in black and white for a Valentine's present. 

I have been trying to follow the thread semi successfully. Lesley I hope your shoulder can be sorted quickly and as for those heads, sounds horribly grim. We are also going to celebrate the New Year quietly, well possibly with the youngest. I shall be very glad to be shot of this year and hoping I'm not pinning too much on 2017! Love the Helen Mirren picture. I think quote was from Graham Norton.

Delly I'm not sure if I've commented already, but it sounds like you've had a very quick response from your local team, so fingers crossed the support will be just right. 

Sue where was the pram race? I have vague memories of similar. With you Ruby on the tree, it's my bit of cheer at home. Children must be getting older, there are still chocolates on the tree! Mind you, not a sniff of Turkey left, maybe you could send out parcels Charys?! Hugs to all xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Oh Dizzy, that must have been so emtional for you both.  However, she's that much further down the line so hopefully gives you encouragement for the future.

 

Himself and I have decided to see the new year indoors on our own.  For years dear friends of ours always threw a huge party but sadly he died a few years ago.  Since then we've ventured into town to a social club for a dance/buffet do  and meet up with other friends but it's such a hassle trying to get a taxi home.  Really dont fancy all the noise and crowds.  Nice meal and a bottle of bubbly will do me nicely, wait for  the fireworks to finish (sounds like world war 3 round here at midnight) and go to bed.  What's everyone else got planned?

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Love the Helen Mirren pic and caption! I am so ready to see the back of 2016.

 

I saw a neighbour this morning, hadn't seen her to talk to for ages. She has really bad arthritis so she's usually only going between the house and the car, so we wave from a distance. But this morning I was walking past so we stopped to chat, and I told her about my BC diagnosis, I knew she was diagnosed about six or seven years ago. We were both in tears by the end. I suppose it's a long time since I told someone who didnt know, but I thought I was over that reaction. Instead I felt like I did right at the beginning when it was such a shock.

 

So roll on 2017, the year of recovery!

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Couldnt agree more Helen Mirren lol.

 

Thank you all so much for hugs xx. Gp just rang back, re referring me to muscular/skeletal/physio centre.  Discussed hot flushes/sweats, and again stuck between a rock and a hard place, anything that can help has contrawhatsits with my migraine meds.  I really have to be able to take them when one kicks in as the pain is unbearable and they can go on for three days non stop and the meds do stop the pain though not the other yucky symptoms.  Still, if I can get some relief from shoulder/arm pain and my stars arrive in a few days I'll be happy, I can lay in a pool of sweat, pain free and star gaze.

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Afternoon all, hope you're all well, except poor Lesley, you really don't deserve two frozen shoulders along with everything else. You'll disappear under all the hugs, hope they help you feel loved if not pain free. Anyway, I'm adding more hugs to the pile, and hope you get your injections soon.

Helena, hope the chest is on the mend now, and you can look forward to another three days off from the rads.

 

We went for a very atmospheric walk this morning, we took Daisy to Maidencastle, which is a huge Iron Age hill fort. It was so foggy we were following the path round the ramparts but couldn't see down the slope on either side, and every now and again we could just make out a sheep in the distance. Very murky and muffled, so we weren't there for long, but I'm definitely a bit tired now. I went to bed last night at 10.30 because I couldn't stay awake, and it was 8.45 when I woke up this morning. It's years since I slept that long. 

 

Charys, I'm with you in wanting some snow, we had that lovely white Christmas five or six years ago but not too much since here.

TRust you to have 2 frozen shoulders Lesley.....one is never enough for you is it ! πŸ˜‰Hope you get your jab as planned for.

 

Good luck today Helena.....it's such a slog I know.....are you getting on well with the team there though? That makes a difference if they are nice to meet. 

 

Yep Rubycat.....2017.... so close and WILL be better for each and every one of us. I think we need to sit and look at the real stars too, well, once it's a wee bit warmer anyway.

Special hugs Lovely Lesley, what 2, 2 frozen shoulders??? I've had one, but two at the same time, AND Headaches, bah humbug to them indeed.  Now sending you even more hugs. Hope Doc gets back to you soon.

Nooo, don't take the treeeee down, it's too good and beautiful.  I don't take it down till Twelth Night, and then only because I have to.  Lucky you with the starry starry night, it just looks so fantastic and will while away those sleepless hours - which are going to be gone in 2017.

Third of the way through now Lady who lives in a tower with spherical objects, who knew it would go so quickly? Cat Very Happy Just seen you have other health difficulties too, so bah humbug to them as well, and more huggles back to you - just tried to send double hugs and went back to zero, bah humbug.

Keeping on with my gluteous (oh bugger the spelling) exercises, and happy to report that my hip is feeling decidedly stronger and better.  Physio did say the back pain associated with muscles not working properly, but back still not right, but defo better than it was.  So hooray for that.

Love to all and everyone, and Marydan and Moijan, especially Dellywellydingdongbellpussyinthewell (oh, that is not what I meant you filthy lot). Cat Very Happyxxx

Helena, I thought you had 15, Not 20 that's why I thought you were a third of the way through the other day.  Guess you've got boosters then.  I didn't have them.  Looking forward to ringing my bell.  Think you're the last of us to be done?  Pretty sure anyway but get confused easily these days xx

Good morning ladies,

 

Sue, the starry starry night magic is on order, can't wait for it to arrive now xx

 

Just had a conversation with BCN and asked if ok to have steroid injection on BC side because shoulder frozen again (both sides).  She said very small risk and frozen shoulder intolerable (tell me about it!) and as injections helped before needs doing.  Phoned gp and waiting for call back from duty doctor to discuss.

 

Misty and murky here today after a few days of lovely sunshine.  Feeling a bit flat 😞 was going to take the tree and stuff down, bah humbug and all that, but shoulders not up to all that reaching and stretching.  Not even my steel drums cd worked its magic today.  Still, only one and half days of 2016 to get through then a bright brand new wonderful new year begins.

 

Helena, don't know what time today's zapping is but it will be another one crossed off the list, it's getting shorter and shorter.  I hope you understood about the "dressing" and haven't gone out starkers!

 

Wishing you lovely lot a splendid day xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Oh yes, that would make you a bit more cautious..I understand how you feel.

 

i am lucky because I was recommended a particular lady by a friend....she is a dr of chiro...I always tell her what I dont want - but what she does is places soft blocks under my hips. To reallign them whilst getting me to do excercises....she is pretty amazing! .and now I only see her when Im feeling the milder early onset symptoms of sciatica...but also now I can usually nip it in the bud myself at home by doing what she taught me!

 

i do understand totally....and I dont go to osteopaths because they have more rigorous techniques.

 

best of luck with everythingxx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Helena,

 

Just to share that I too get/got bone pains in my hip, also sciatica when I get stressed.

 

i go to the chiro now asap, ( I do have spinal/bone mets) anyway, the chiro advised me to sleep with a pillow between my knees( if on my side) and under them if on my back...and it has made an enormous difference! Apparently on our sides theres a tendency for one leg to rest higher up and the pelvis then gets out of place....

 

I do get less sciatica now and so I keep to that...wonder if a chiro might hrlp you? I was convinced my pains were due to bone mets, but as they are better now it obviously wasn't thatxxx

 

Helena, just spotted about the 'chair' .  hard chairs also cause sciatica for me..so I try not to sit on benches etc,  again the chiro mentioned that a nerve gets trapped by our 'sitting bones', she also said to have my btm higher than knee level.....all of which helps me.xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Mmmm, yeh, me again.Hellooooo again. Hope you've all had  good day or a better day.

 

Clair - What's happened to your avatar "Pin-Up" photo?? S'gone?

Sue - What d'ya mean my hug was wonderful as usual, it was your first one. Or were you going off my reputation. What a shame about the Pram Race then, disappointment for those who DID make the effort. 

Ruby - Will meet you at Lulworth then for that swim. I'm the same in needing a fix. Took me about 7 yrs to become more used to not being/living on the coast, after 16yrs of Bournemouth. But there were other benefits to moving back North - culture without the massive expanse of London, being one. I might work on living South again now though - possibly East Sussex. Haha, that'll get Sue worried! Maybe Exeter - that'll get Janey worried!

Moijan - Hello flower, glad to popped in and checked things over. Hope you're feeling better today. How was your evening with family last night?

 

Marydan - Good to see youhoo. Hope you had a good Xmas too. Hoping the scan results are good/favourable for you. Interested to know results when you receive. Will you let us know, if you've time and remember to? Happier, healthier 2017 to you too.

 

Probably see you tomorrow - going to bed as feelin dreadful with this sickly tum. Night girls

Lotsa love
