Hi. I am 35 and live in Swindon. I was diag in 2015 and have finished all treatments. I would love to meet you/ support you in any way that I can.

Thanks! I hope it will cure me from my phobia, but I am doing a fertility treatment in case if the chemo stops my periods, it has been 10 days with 2 injections per day, and I am still stressing out before each of them.
I think I will focus on work and go to bed early, do a daily walk and not do too much appart from that. I will tell my friends to visit me and I think I will subscribe on Netflix.

I had a needle phobia too, but by the end of the treatment I was so used to having needles stuck in me that I don't even think about it beforehand now. I found cancer treatment to be a cure for needle phobia.

Staying as active as possible will help, but know when to stop and rest. Listen to your body and you will be surprised how soon the treatment is over.

Hi,

 

I am 38 but living in London. I haven't started chemo yet, I will start Friday next week. I am quite stressed and anxious for the moment as I don't know howw I will react to the treatment. Like you I am planning to work through the treatment as I can't afford not to work, and it seems that staying active helps. Fingers crossed I will be able to do that. I also have a needdle phobia, which doesn't help with anxiety. I hope that my stress levels will lower when the treatment will have started. But I do 4 sessions of EC and then 4 sessions of T, so I am not sure how I will react to both the same way. I am also really stressed out by the surgery.

You have done already more than half of our chemo treatment, it is good! Stay strong you will make it.

I would like to be able to go forward in time and get to the point when my treatment will be finished.

I'm amazed that you are still working. I could not have done that. I think you deserve some duvet days to just relax and do what you feel like.

I finished radiotherapy a couple of months ago and am back to normal. No more treatment, thanks.

I'm 63, but the stress is normal whatever your age. You are going through a difficult time and i found the treatment made me less able to cope. I felt a lot better a month after the last treatment, taste and energy back to normal etc. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Hope you get some answers from those of your age and nearer to you than i am.

Other 30 somethings from swindon?

Hello
I was wondering if there are any ladies here living in or near swindon that are in their 30s and been through or going through chemotherapy for primary breast cancer?

Everyone In my family and friends have been so supportive and keep telling Me im doing so well, am strong etc but i am finding my anxiety and stress levels with bottling it up are increasing. The fear of it not working or coming back keeps creaping in and i am finding it hard to not be able to talk with people who are perhaps same age as me or going through it

I am on my 4th chemotherapy treatment with two left and will then have radiotherapy and take tamioxifen. Would be great to chat with others
