Hi boney ladies,
Livlassie, yes, I've found my OH just does not want to contemplate my illness at all, sometimes that's a good thing for me sometime not.
Nina, so pleased you're stable, long may it continue.
Joanne, I was on tamoxifen but it didn't work so had to had a round of Taxol, I'm on Arimidex now so I wouldn't worry that all hormone treatment isn't suitable.
Hollymeg, sorry to hear about your friends. It must bring you very low.
Val, ah Val, sorry to hear you're having a tough time at the moment, big, big hugs to you, as mentioned by others, you really are very special and have helped me so much on this bumpy old road.
I would like to share my good news. Another scan result today, shaking in my boots but my ONC said my scan result was the best he could have ever hoped for. No new bone mets, nothing anywhere else. So pleased after some of the gloomy meetings I had last year with medical folk. I told him the only thing that makes me feel bad is coming into the hospital!
Work - well, as mentioned by some above, it has been a battle. The year before last they tried to get me out with a disciplinary hearing, but after taking advice I managed to get them eating their words at said hearing and saying nothing would go on my record and today HR person couldn't have been nice enough. I think they try and upset us to try to get us to leave but at the end of the day, we didn't chose to be ill.
Anyway, as you ladies will probably appreciate, after a week of fretting I'm feeling so much more relaxed and plan to go racing at Cheltenham this weekend. It is just up the road which is lucky for me.
