Well done Junash you sound possitive. Don't forget to get plenty of rest and hope you have a good nights sleep.
Possitive energy is the way forward and we will come out smiling x
Sorry to hear all the things you are all going through I hope you all feel better soon or even get a few days of feeling normal (what ever that is).
Went for my wig this morning and was quite up beat about the whole thing till she put on the first one she thought would suit me and I burst into tears, can't seem to stop them at the moment. Once I calmed down picked a one similar to own colour but a bit longer, hope I never need to wear it though.
First chemo tomorrow and would love a good sleep beforehand but going off the last few months that is not going to happen, as a few of you have already said a good nights sleep is not part of our lives at ther moment.
Good luck and big hugs to all you lovely ladies x

Bettypoppit sorry to hear of your set back this week. From what I understand with reduced immunity what would normally be a minor infection can quickly become more serious and so I have been told by my BCN to take my temperature every day and not to ignore things like a sore throat, that we would all probably normally ignore for days before going to see a doctor.
I think that infections are treated quickly with heavy doses of antibiotics and then treatment resumes once you are infection free again, but I don't know what they do about the treatment schedule after that or if they do extra rounds of chemo to make up for delays.
Try not to let it get you down (easy to say I know), sending you love and hugs xx
Had chemo visit and all went well not to scary. They showed me the cold cap which looks like an implement of torture but I am still going to give it ago. It is all starting to happen for us all but we can get through it.
Off for wig tomorrow just incase the implement of torture doesn't work
Bettypoppit - I just found out that my hospital offers help from a hypnotherapist if you have any phobias - might be worth asking your BCN if she can get you some help with the needle phobia. My own personal phobia is vomiting so hoping to get some help with that this week before starting chemo next monday!
good luck to everyone for this week x
Morning you lovely ladies.
Going to go and get ready for my pre chemo visit before Wednesday - this is starting to feel so real.
Good luck and big hugs to everyone who is starting this week, we will come out fighting x
