Good to hear from you. Yes it is 5 years sometimes it seems like yesterday. The secret marches are still going on a Facebook group called secret marchies
if you wish to join. Best wishes Pamx
Happy New Year Ladies! I cannot believe it's 2 years since we were diagnosed!
How was your new year? We went to Barcelona for the first time and it was fabulous! Sunshine and blue skies everyday, amazing architecture and such a beautiful city.
I'm writing to update you on the amount raised for Wessex Cancer, my local charity through christmas light sales on our website. We sold a total of £140.71 and the amount to be donated is £7.05 (5%).
Thank you so much for your support!
A friend sent me this and I'd love to share it with you ...
A Psychologist walked around a room while teaching Stress Management to an audience.
As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they'd be asked the "Half empty or Half full" question.
Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired:
"How heavy is this glass of water?"
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold it.
If I hold it for a minute, it's not a problem.
If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my arm.
If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralysed.
In each case, the weight of the glass doesn't change,
But The longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.
She continued, "The Stresses and Worries in Life , are like that Glass of Water...
Think about them for a while and nothing happens.
Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt.
And If you think about them all day long, you will feel paralysed – incapable of doing anything."
Remember to put the Glass Down.
Much love and hugs xx
Angela! How lovely to hear from you! I went through one really bad period where a good friend had an ovarian cancer scare. I was fine before that but when I heard the news I was emotional when I heard it and emotional when I talk about it which is really unlike me. Thank God she's fine.
I plan to make time to go through Jinny Ditzler's Best Year Yet to help me move forward to work out what I really want and work towards my goals. We're having difficulties financially as the light sales have gone right down compared to last year and I haven't been designing sites as I've been working on our website. I'm sure many of us have been hit financially and I hope to take a step back, work out what we want and go for it next year!
When will you be back next?
Hope you are all well. It's been absolutely manic here as hubby's busines selling Christmas lights I've been working really hard on our new website over the last few months and it finally went live last Wednesday.
I'm hoping to raise lots of money for my local cancer charity, Wessex Cancer Trust who have given me so much in the form of moral support, alternative treatments, holiday in their caravan and a cancer retreat which really helped me to move on. All this has been instrumental in my speedy recovery.
If you are looking for festive lights, please send me a private message, as 5% of all sales will be donated to the charity.
Would someone be able to pass on the news to our Facebook page as I don't have an account? Thank you!
Just popping in from the February 2013 Valentines to wish all you Marchies so much love and sympathy! And I also send lots of love to ScottyDog's real-life family.
On behalf of the staff at BCC please pass on our sincere condolences to Scottydog1974's family and friends. Yet another forum user that will be sadly missed.
Thank you for letting us know.
I'm sure many of you know that one of our number has lost the battle. Our lovely Scottydog1974 died on the 22nd of August after being diagnosed with metastatic cancer at the end of April. It is a sad and terrible shock and we have lost a beautiful woman with the bigest smile I've ever seen. We all have a duty to her, to carry on as she did, living and loving life to the full. Sweet dreams dear friend, we will all miss you so very much. oxoxoxox
Sorry to have missed get together - haven't checked in for ages if only I'd done so a week or so ago....
Hope you are all OK. Take care all
Nipinuk -- you are one of a very small number of Malaysians that I "know" in this country -- hoping so much that no one who is dear to you was on MH17! What a horror for the whole world with love, Louise.
Salutation's from deepest France!
Its a year since my last chemo today and I feel like celebrating!! Hope all that can make the lunch date on the 29th have a great time, so sorry I won't be there in person but I will have a little glass of something to join in
Hope all the meds are going ok for everyone - I moan on about sore fingers and toes from arthrits but its not too bad really.
Keep up the fight - don't let your guard down - and have a ball! Much love to all xoxoxxo
Sorry to have missed the get together. Glad to hear that you all seem to be doing well. Take care ladies!
Well we really had a great lunch yesterday, sorry for those who couldn't make it - it would be lovely to have everyone from the thread for a 'do' but geography prevents!
I mention Vitamin B 6 as a potential prophylactic treatment, it appears more suitable for postmenopausal but take a look at the link
Hope everyone has been out and about enjoying the spring weather!
Hi ladies, great results Suzy & Pammy. I had mine & all ok too, nothing obvious & will get results this week. Apparently tenderness is scar tissue which made the mammo so painful, just happened that anc arm decided to play up too so the whole procedure was agony!
I hope everyone elses checkups go well, is there another meet up? Xxx
