Hi fiona im sorry to hear i hope you have people around you to support you with your son. i can only imagine how hard it is but youve come this far and im sure u'll deal with it. I feel so lost and lonely lost my mum in march and i dont know what to do with myself. im 29, no kids and never been married. im thinking of skipping the treatment and seeing what happens. everyones life seem to go on and the more im around them the more i resent everyone.
Sorry new this i accidentally posted the wrong thing. Thank you ladies for all your replies it brings comfort to know that i have others that understand and can share with. I dont know whats happening to me i have so much anger and resentment towards my friends and collegues especially when i see them laughing away just reminds me what im missing. i have decided to just keep myself to myself im i being selfish or unresonable.
How is everyone doing

Due to start chemo on friday havent told anyone and dont know whether to?
please help starting my first treatment on friday and my mind has just gone blank, i havent told anyone and have no idea what to expect. do i have to tell my employer and if so do i need to provide hospital letters?
or the good wishes.PICC now in but very uncomfortable, blood tests tomorrow. Still got some dental pain but dentist says all ok so looks like me n FEC have a date on Thursday. Really worried about infections...no, actually petrified roll on November! Hope you gals are all ok??
I am due to have the 1st of 6 FEC treatments on Thursday for a grade 3 lump. Just had two teeth out and still have a very sore mouth/infection? so worried they may have to delay...just want to get started now as lump is big at 5cm although ultrasound detects 28mm. Scared about prognosis longer term as appears I have a nasty invasive cancer. On the plus side NAD in nodes as yet. Feeling tired (sleepy) all the time but unsure why...
Fiona, wanted to wish you luck.
