Re: Darling Rads of August

Is it easier to stay here? I don't mind but you won't be long in Sept before you finish will you. Though there will be newbies who need a place to go so perhaps it needs starting x

Re: Darling Rads of August

Thank goodness we can share here, its awful sad we have to keep secrets from loved ones.  I did tell my son who's 23 and living at home and he has been my champion and has put up with tears and tantrums from me, but I couldn't tell my mum. She lives in new Zealand and is a bc survivor herself,  I know she would feel helpless and upset being so far away

sending you all huge hugs

Re: Darling Rads of August

It's hard telling people my parents where the wist ones to tell . My mum had sarcoma cancer 6 years ago but is fine now . My husband was in denial at first . Both my daughters where with me when I got dignoised and take it in turns to come to all. My appointments . Mind you they are 31 and 24 . Must be hard if you have younger children .
Member

Re: Darling Rads of August

I told my daughter as soon as I was referred for investigations. She is 20 though so easier than having to tell younger children. Telling my parents was hard though as they are in their 80s. I also told my work colleagues - it's surprising how many have a family member or friend who have had BC too. 

Hope everyone is managing to enjoy the long weekend and the break from rads. It's pouring with rain here and I have a ton of washing to do before we go away 😞 xx

Re: Darling Rads of August

If you are diagnosed with say bowel cancer the chances are that you have been feeling unwell for quite a while, but breast cancer comes out of the blue. This is why it is such an emotional shock. I was feeling perfectly well until I found my lump in February. now after all the treatment I feel like I have aged 10 years!!

We must be kind to ourselves & stop apologising & feeling guilty. We should be proud that we have come through this, and that thanks to the wonderful medical treatment we have received, we will soon be well again.

I especially applaud those of you who are unable to confide in your family. That is a very sad situation to be in but I fully understand your reasons. Hope you all enjoy the bank holiday.

Re: Darling Rads of August

Jo ,I told him I was having Gynae operation and he knows I am off sick.17 yr old boys are not very observant !!!My Dad is 85 and lives alone I haven't told him either,think it would probably have killed him.Difficult balancing act this thing isn't it, protecting people but also needing there support.
Member

Re: Darling Rads of August

Actually my mum doesn't know about the BC. She went into a nursing home last year after a stroke and can't speak. I tried to tell her but she just started pointing at someone's stash of crisps. Decided not to worry her with it.

Re: Darling Rads of August

my daughter knows ive been off work but just thinks ive got a sore shoulder ive had to tell them in the office at work due to all the time off ive had apart frim that only my hubby and sis know ..I didnt want my mum to find out she would be worried sick yes it has been hard work calling at my mums and she be telling me whos got cancer and saying its shocking poor thing some one is always having sadness.and im sat listening thinking you havnt got a clue at all about me..ive even put my uniflorm on many a time called had coffee as if im working so she dosnt smell a rat..if anyone from work would have seen me diving with uniform on they would have thought I'd gone round the twist .x

Re: Darling Rads of August

Wow Jill that's good that you have managed to keep it from your son, the worst thing in all of this for me was having to put this on my boys but I couldn't risk them finding out from anyone else and they would soon have known something was going on with me and their dad being off work a fair bit as it never happens, does he not wonder why your home at the minute? 

Member

Re: Darling Rads of August

Yes, took them back. Christine. Jill: I have told everybody - colleagues, family and friends. didn't want rumours about "gardening leave" at work and was so stressed and frantic re diagnosis, I decided to tell kids as soon as I knew prognosis was good so i could emphasise that. Must be hard for you not being able to talk about it - on the other hand, I probably discuss it too much.

Re: Darling Rads of August

Just laughing at my spelling just as I thought it was getting better ha! hopefully I can be getting myself back to work in the next few weeks x

Re: Darling Rads of August

Sounds like you have been meeting yourself coming back.My son was doing his exams when I was diagnosed so protected him from what was going on, then never found the right time to tell him.When is the right time to scare your children ????He would be more helpful I guess if he knew , too late now.Very few people around me know what is happening ,in some ways good ,can be normal around people,in some ways bad people don't make allowances for you,no bunches of flowers, fruit baskets etc!!!!!!Exciting day ahead food shopping followed by visit to care home to take mother in law out.Now if you weren't depressed before you went there you will be afterwards ,as nice as it is it ,still has the feeling of being Gods Waiting Room....

Re: Darling Rads of August

Crikey, Christine. I can't believe how much you've managed to do. Hope you get a rest once school starts. I've still got shoes to get for my youngest - bought some but the colour came off the leather after two wears!
