Hi Christine, it's called Starting rads mid September,II think perhaps we should go with starting a new one, someone suggested calling it September Sizzlers, what do you reckon? X
unanamous then... lets move to September! goodbye August, glad to see the back of you 🙂 so shall we join the one already going? x
Should we be starting a September thread or should we continue to hang out here???Any thoughts?I am straddling both months but I know a lot of you have now finished.
Wow she dies oldham colesium every winter christmas panto she done palace in manchester yes lots and lots of hard work and running around christmas panto last 3 months lol so christmas festive is out the window for us lol x
hil Lorna yes she is into just about everything she has been filming all the holls for the 4oclock club its about a school teenagers dropped her off today she is fiming the end of term prob they all looked aamazing..x
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
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
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.
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
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?
