Hi Crispy. Do you live in Penrith? I went to my nearest small town (not Penrith). I can give you more info if you pm me but don't want to identify my therapist to all on here, ok?
I have regular reflexology and she does a bit of reiki at the end. I have never had a full session of Reiki.
I can recommend my therapist. She does massage as well and her practice employs others who do allsorts of weird and wonderful therapies.
I don't know liz but please wish her well from me. I was in Liverpol today, first time at Liverpool one and thinks it lovely, went for a coffee in the mall where we all met and was thinking of you all.
That is so sad about Lizzie ,she is such a lovely lady and had fun when we met love to her xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I will be ok for Jan defo not dec now got too many hosp appts ,I too seem to be surrounded by tragedy !! Ive always dislied Christamas hate it moe than ever these days xxx
That is such awful awful news Irene thanks for sharing it.
I know some on here are not religious but i am, so will pray for her. You are so right she has a beautiful nature so gentle. I will never understand suffering and often ask WHY.
I definately think we should keep to a Jan meet up. Its just too busy for us and in town in Dec.
I have so many friends who are ill just now, and want to spend time with them. Seems hard with christmas coming up and everyone 'jolly' to join in when folk are ill. However my family would want it to be a happy time.
I will be in Liverpool on the 18th and 19th but have 2 action packed days so may not be able to meet up as first thought. If any of you are in town on either of those 2 days I may be able to meet for a quick drink and/or a bite but can't arrange yet, sorry.
Spoke to Liz at weekend and sent her all your regards. She was very grateful. She said she wouldn't mind me telling you all she has lost her sight, and for that reason alone, she won't be visiting the site agin. I did offer to sit with her and read for her but she wasn't too bothered, bigger things to think about me thinks.
She is inspirational, and has such a wonderful support network around her, and a lovely lovely family, which is probably partly down to her own sweet nature.
I may see her on those dates in Dec so if you want to pass on any messages please do and I will print them off and read them for her.
Bye for now
Love to all
that would be great Anne if you could make both. Will get a date for jan prob near end of. I believe town is so so busy at the moment on Saturdays so we did right not having a meet up on a Sat run up to christmas.
Alli not been well, hope ya better soon Alli and no more visits to A&E, me love. Ya got to come end of DEC
Hope you are all ok. Think of you all!
Keep us posted on January date. I can probably do most days - just a little rearrangement here and there!
I may be able to meet in Dec, will decide asap.
Sorry I haven't been intouch for a while. My computer at home is now broken, so I am doing this quickly at work. Would love to meet up with you , but January looks like more of a possibility for me at the moment.
I can't make it this time, works xmas party on the 17th and even though i have the 18th off i know i will be knackered. Hope it goes well and i will come next time.
I might be ok for the 18th.
Liz,if you do get to read this,I hope you are feeling better soon.Thinking of you.
So full is my social life that either the 18th or 19th is fine by me 🙂 Anyone else up for it??
Off to see Santa on the 20th.
Good luck to us all, especially those who haven't been so well lately.
Oh Irene thats so sad could you email me with any news on Bizzylizzie, we must be well over due a phone call you and I.
Irene i would love to meet you but can only manage the 18th, I am out for work lunch on the 19th and a carol concert at the phil in the evening.
Maybe Maureen could meet us, it would be lovely. Have heard the Adelphi is ok for food, i wonder if they are doing any christmas meals.
Allicat may come too have to ask her.
Loadsa Luv to All
I will be in Liverpool on 18th and 19th dec and may be able to meet for lunch. My friend says the Adelphi do a sort of carvery mon to fri for about Â£4 anyone interested?
Also, for those of you who met Buzzylizzie at our first meet, you may wish to know shes been quite poorly. I saw her at the weekend and hope to keep intouch with her if you want to pass any messages on to her through me thats ok. As far as I know she isn't coming on here anymore but you could maybe try PM her.
She's brilliant bless her, so strong.
Havent got a calander yet so not sure about suggested dates. will bve back on next week with an answer. Yes maureen home life is actually good thanks!
Ok all I know I mentioned before Xmas but as its creeping up rapidly Jan will prob be the better option so I say early Jan .too..Saturday is best for me as I have a hectic start in the new year with work but will deffo make this one after missing the last ..looking forwrad to meeting the newbies and all ...will feel loike the new girl haha so I will be brave and pick Saturdays 10 or 17 hows that sound ....cafe rouge or shall we throw caution to the wind and go somewhere else ????
Hi, Irene and Ruth
Sorry you can't make it before Xmas :(. Your life does sound really busy, Liver. I've had a couple of hectic weeks and it's taken its toll on me. Pace yourself, girl.
Irene, hope things have improved on the domestic front 🙂
See you both in the New Year then, although I'm sure we'll be exchanging messages in the meantime.
Sorry if this disappoints folk but i think an after christmas meet up is going to be more do-able.
Maybe aim for middle of Jan and a Saturday.
Personally i have taken on too much with courses and voluntary work for the CAB and one day paid work for the agency, with hosp appts and another trip away for a few days in Dec i feel i will meet myself coming back.
I decided to keep myself busy and my mind off my health but not sure its the best option as i am so worn out.
It is lovely though when we keep in touch via this thread.
I can't do tuesdays and mons are also difficult. Fri's are better for me. But actually I don't think I can make dec anyway as down this coming sat/sun for a family do, and other stuff on in later weeks, so please don't arrange around me!
A friday is ok with me, someone else pick a date, think I instigated the last 2! Maz glad your results are ok, are you on arimidex? They gave me terrible bone pain.
Bubbly, you are great saving your last holiday date to spend it with us!
I'm up for the next meet, whenever it is!
Julie- been thinking about you too- will text you!
Maureen- really crossing my fingers that US will be fine- even if it does mean no G+T's!
Everyone else, hope you're all doing well and look forward to catching up again.
Bye for now - Bedtime!!!
Just got back from Anglesey last night after snuggling down caravan for the winter. Had a fantastic summer, being totally independent and driving myself up and down the M56 and A55, walking the dog etc. I can't believe how well I've been after the last few years - and I'm touching wood all over the place as I'm saying that.
Went back to Christie's a fortnight ago and they're sending me for an ultrasound on my liver. The GGA (I think that's what it is) is off the scale. Hope it's all to do with the g'n'ts and not further spread, in which case it can easily be remedied. I've more than halved the intake since I had that news. Never thought I could do it but there you are. Still haven't received the appointment so it's anyone's guess when that'll arrive.
Yes, I'm all for meeting up again. I could have done with at least one more head and two more tongues at the last meet hahaha.
Good luck all with treatment. Toronto, I'm impressed the lympho nurse came out to you!!! How did you wangle that one?? Reminds me, I must make an appointment as my arm feels fit to burst.
Soz ..... I mentioned meeting before Christmas but cant do Saturdays ......are we all available on any Fridays in December ???? If not shall we do January .
My fault didnt realise what a social butterfly I will be in December 🙂 Lolxxxxxx
Hi maz i haven't met you yet either but hope to soon and hope you are feeling lots better. I have one holiday day left from work so I will wait to see when you are going.
Love to all
Maz your brilliant!!
It was gonna be after christmas, but maybe nice to have a festive meet up, just that i wondered if people would be busy and also Sat Dec are horrible in town.
If anyone would like to suggest dates. I am away Dec 12th week.
Hope everyone is O.K. I am ploughing my way through rads at the moment, all seems to be going well.
I have also had a home visit from my lymphoedema nurse which I was very impressed with, she has sorted me out with 3 sleeves, it was more severe than I thought, but I am hoping that I am as lucky as bubbly and Irene and it improves!!
Great news Maz!!!, I haven`t met you but feel I know you.
Look forward to seeing you all soon.
Love Jan xx

Good to see people posting here again. Hope you are all doing ok?
How are you Anne? Been thinking about you a lot. Did you manage to get that rogue lymph node sorted out? Managed to find articles on olive oil you were talking about. Thanks.
Do we know when we are thinking about meeting again??
Hi from the manchester part of the liverpool crew. I wasn't sure if you just post on here when you are going to meet again.
Please let me know about your get-together. I live across the water. thanks email me hardasm at hotmail dot com
Irene have been meaning to call but so much stuff going on ..get in touch soon ...congratulations on getting to two years ...16th October was my first aniv of my mastectomy and at the mo I have been feeling like c***p.had some blood test get the results tomorrow xxxxx
Love to the Liverpool crew xxxx
Maz, I sent you a private message. Haven't emailed as not been settled in one place for ages. Hope you are ok and don't forget to email or ring if you want a chat.
Yes it has gone quiet Ruth!
Today is the 2nd aniversary of my mastectomy op. I'm still here and feeling good in the main so something to celebrate!
How are the Liverpool Crew?? It has gone so quiet. Had lunch with Alli today and she was asking how our 'get together' went.
Hi Jan, don't need cream have a massive tub already but thanks! Hope rads is going well, drink plenty of water and all the other stuff they suggest and you'll be fine.
Maz, hope all is ok, pm me or ring if you need a chat.
Glad your weeekend was "productive" keep up the good work!
So pleased you picked up the cream, please use it, I was issued with a tube yesterday and they replace it all through treatment.
Off now for arm exercise class before rads,should be interesting.
Great to meet you on Saturday,
I live in Eccles so if you ever want to chat and could meet in manchester let me know. Hi all hope everyone has recovered.. i went cycling on sunday it was a beautiful day but got cycle bum now if you know what i mean..
Hi Sue ....have been popping in the other thread to see if you had been in ...I didnt make the meet up wasnt well enough but Liverbird is planning another for January ..I was gutted that I missed it but next time ? The ladies I met in July are lovely and I am sure all you new ladies are too .
To save this go to the main chit chat and fun and when you get into this bit Liv meet up ..on the left handside there is "Bookmark this discussion" click on this and it will highlight bookmared in the main title so you can see it when you go in the list .
Hope this makes sense ,
I have not been in the rest of the forum too much lately as it is really getting to me and stuff ...I cant get secondaries out of my head and as I am having a load of tests at the mo I think its better to stay out !
If you would like to mail on a one to one basis I will pm you my email address if you want ?
Ruth et al soz that I couldnt make it ..I just lie on the sofa all day feeling c***p will deffo get to the next one only not 31st Jan as I am going to London and having tea at the Ritz !! A Christmas one would be nice or is that too soon ???
Any way hope everyone is feeling good wherever you e on your BC journey luv 2 u all 🙂
Maz sort of led me to this discussion and mentioned your meet but unfortunately I didnt pick up the message until tday. I live in Astley near Leigh so quite near to you all. It would be great to be involved if that is ok. I live alone and dont have any close family so any excuse for a natter is great. The dog is sick of me !!!!
Can anyone tell me how I save this or retrieve it easily as I keep losing my place in discussion forume and forget where I was !!!
Take care all
This is the first opportunity I have had to say what a lovely day sat was. You are all very special people and it's a pleasure to have met you all. Looking forward to the next one.
Jan, I have your cream, will keep hold of it for you. 2 yrs post op I still use mine daily so no doubt it will come in useful at some point.
OH and I had a productive and positive weekend too so very glad I came as the meet was the trigger for that. Still back at my flat for now though.
Take care and keep in touch.
I really enjoyed it, your all tremendous. Don't worry i will arrange another meet up in Jan. Drag you around Liverpool 1 granny lol!!! I couldnt help but giggle to myself on the bus home, about my enthusiasm and thinking i was giving you a treat offering to take you round Liverpool 1, the new shoppin place. Obviously your not keen on shops.. Anyway weatherspoons and wine was more relaxing. I was so sleepy all evening though. I dont think wine and me agree with each other.
Mary do hope your feeling better, you and Maz and Alli i hope will make the next meet up.
i dont want to be 'depressing' when i say this but just like the last meet up half of those who came had secondaries, brings home to me this isnt some airy fairy disease which ya take in ya stride and are cured from unfortunately. Its good we can all get together and share things and hopefully help each other.
Love to ALL
Had a great day yesterday. Lovely to meet you and you're all fantastic. Thanks for arranging it, Liverbird, and for helping me choose husband's birthday present, which he's very pleased with. And thanks, Bubbly, for meeting me at Lime Street. Got home at 8pm ker-ker-ker-nackered but very happy. Mary, hope your chest infection soon improves and you feel better. Good luck to all with scans, appointments etc.
Hi everyone! For those who I met yesterday- it was really lovely to meet such a brilliant bunch of women! I couldn't help thinking of Maz, Allicat and others who weren't there though- hope you are all ok today and that I'll get the chance to meet you all soon.
I will keep an eye on this thread for any future meet-ups, next time I'll leave the car behind and have an extra glass of wine too!
Bye for now,
