216 when you used to find things beautiful.... and now you find them almost unbearably so - and you cry
217 when you didn't feel like you'd been reborn and are having a go at life all over again
218 when people didn't say 'How are you?' in such a pointed way
219 when you didn't have to blow-dry your scars as well as your hair every morning!
220 when your car wasn't able to drive itself automatically the 20 mile route to the hospital

214 when single breasted meant one row of buttons in the centre of your jacket

215 when an echo was the noise you heard after you shouted down a tunnel

( actually I have found the Echo Cardiogram to be the nicest of all the procedures I have had to have - definitely not one to dread)

Re: Do you remember when ...........

Just thought of some others 😉

161 When you thought being cannulated was something they did to sugar.
162 When you were happy to have veins that didn't stick out a mile.
163 When you didn't know and didn't care what you're neuts count was.
164 When you didn't have that post chemo body smell - oops maybe that's just me!
165 When you could eat what the hell you wanted.
166 When you didn't look forward to being pumped full of chemicals and feeling cr@p after because it was 'another one ticked off'
167 When you didn't sit secretly in your bathroom surrounded by your needles, syringes and drug paraphernalia and feel like a junkie.

(Guess who's on chemo?)

161 Telling everyone when your next FEC was would have considered rude and too well planned - to all those not on FEC, say it with an Irish accent, you'll get what I mean 😉

Re: Do you remember when ...........

This is so funny! Defo relate to the Italian Sausage, its made me smile all day.
Can I add
154. When you spent more on hairdressers than hats and scarves.
155. When the first conversation with people wasnt about someone they knew who had a completely different cancer and they felt compelled to tell you how wonderfully well they were doing!!
156. When the same conversations werent about how same said persons hair had grown back, thicker, stronger, healthier, curlier, greener whatever!! As if you could take comfort from it knowing you still had months of hairless.
