I am so sorry, and angry on your behalf. How some people can sleep at night after such complete disregard for the consequences of such a decision is beyond me. Bless your little one- I hope he or she had a wonderful birthday and that you're there to celebrate many many more in happier circumstances xx
Surely that is illegal? Do you have the strength to check this out? Illness should never be a reason to sack someone.
Thank you, you are so right. Today I feel much better. Work have been really kind. I will have an official welfare meeting if/when the diagnosis is confirmed. In the mean time if I feel rubbish for whatever reason, I just have to tell them and go home, Their very strict attendance policy has been suspended for me. Just have to play the waiting game now.
Really sorry you find yourself on this forum. Yes shock / stress is really exhausting, following my diagnosis i went from lethargy where i couldn't physically move to euphoria almost manic.......... With hindsight i realised following my diagnosis that i'd been unwell, just niggly little things recurring chest infection, what felt like a panic attack ( i had never had anything like this before but work was hectic...........). so in answer to your question it really is likely to be the shock / stress making you feel like this....
Take care and keep posting. Please ask anything you need to know. Gilly x
I'm so new to this. Got recalled after a routine mammogram, had ultrasound and biopsies yesterday. I had truly thought they'd give me the all-clear so I share the shock factor. I have a two week wait for the biopsy results but the consultant was very honest and said she did not want to give me false hopes, so it looks probable that I shall be joining you ladies on this awful journey. I have a question. I've been feeling weary for a while, but today I'm absolutely exhausted. Is this just reaction to the news or a symptom? I had to leave work early today, could hardly put one foot in front of the other.I want to carry on as normal so far as possible, just hope this is temporary.
So sorry to hear of your recent diagnosis. I was diagnosed with the same back in November 2012. It had spread to one of my lymph nodes. I had mastectomy with 3 lymph nodes removed, followed by chemo but refused radiotherapy. Now on Anastrazole for at least 5 years as my cancer was 100% Oestrogen positive. I can honestly say I had a really easy time considering, and as far as cancer is concerned I am now classed as NED (no evidence of disease) but have annual mammogram/breast checks for 5 years. Wish I could say the rest of my health was good, but that's nothing to do with BC.
When You have a treatment plan in place, you will begin to feel more in control. Just deal with each decision as it happens, don't think of it all in one go. Sending you big hugs and wishing you the very best.
