Hi everyone hope you all had a good day today! I agree totally with catlady about having to put on a brave face when your feeling terrible but as cat lady said & I totally agree I don't feel right putting my family through this & not knowing what's going on in their heads, it's bound to be hard for them. Please try and have a relaxing & peaceful evening. Sending big hugs to you all. Maxine
Helo to all, haven't been on here for a while but have just caught up with the posts. Seems we have all managed to get through Christmas..just New Year to go!! We are at a big family party and i know this sounds awful but its the last thing i want to do. Am i the only one who feels like this? I know i just have to get on with it and put on a smile, even if its only for my daughter. Sure we all feel that our children are our world!!
Just wish i didnt have to put her trough all this.
Anyway, wanted to send love to all, especialy those who have been having a bigger struggle than usual and all who are awaiting appointments and test results. xx
Lynn, that's great news. I know it gave me a lift when my news was stable after feeling so miserable for weeks. Hope it has made your Christmas.
Chocolates, I hope those antibiotics start to work quickly and you manage to enjoy some of your holiday.
Bev, I hope you are soon on the mend and your cough eases.
To those I have missed, I hope you are all well enough to enjoy New Year.
Happy new year to you all. Love Sheila xxx
Lynn that's reat news! It's good to be able to relax a bit once you've got your results and they are good!
Still got the blasted virus here, have been realy rough all over the Christmas holidays - thank goodness we had no visitors arranged! Can't be feeling great as most nibbles and sweets still untouched!! I think I'm coughing a little less today so fingers crossed. Hope everyone else is improving too.
Lots of love to you all xx
Morning ladies hope all off you who have the dreaded lurgy are feeling better. I shouldn't tempt fate but since having a flu jab last year and this I haven't had even a cold. It could be the germs have taken one look at me and decided I have beeen so full of all sorts of drugs they don't want to come near me or just maybe not working with the public I have avoided their germs. I am now sitting looking at the Christmas decorations trying to resist the urge to take them down. Hubby was back at work yesterday so it doesn't feel like Christmas anymore! We normally take our decs down early, we have been known to take them down on Boxing day in the past. We had a lovely day with middle son and wife and kids and youngest and girlfriend here. I did a buffet which made for a lovely relaxed day. Hoping to get together with the eldest and his girlfriend and her kids next week when oh has a day off. Hope you all have a good day.
So happy for you Lynnq-fantastic news!!!
Sleep well and enjoy the rest of your Christmas holiday with the knowledge of such a positive scan result!!!
Hi Chocolates, I'm sorry you are feeling so unwell. I hope you get something that helps. Why don't you phone the nurse hotline. They might be better than your GP. Have you had your bloods done recently? Maybe your white cells are low. I am on injections for mine at the moment and I do feel better than I did last week.
Let us know how you go on won't you?
Get well SOON! Thinking about you.
Lots of love Sheila. Xxx
Had a nice week last week, two pub Christmas lunches! One with some SBC friends and one with my sisters and parents. only problem is I've picked up the horrid virus that seems to be going round. Bad throat, coughing,phlegm ......Just hope it clears by Christmas.
I did have some good news a couple of weeks ago, had CT and bone scans brought forward due to pain but both showed me stable so can relax over the festivities.
I hope those of you waiting for results get good news too.
It's been quiet on live chat the past few weeks, would be lovely to see some of you there tomorrow but if you can't make it I'll share a mince pie with you on Christmas Eve.
Farawat I agree with the others, your employer has no right to ask such questions I hope you get it sorted and they are made to feel ashamed of themselves.
Best wishes to you all and strength to those suffering xx
Hi Faraway just a quickie about your employers. Their behaviour stinks. I would definately go to the CAB and Macmillian but I would also try ACAS as well. They have helped my son's girlfriend with her equally awfull employers .
Hi everyone. I was give e/e for two wweks 10m dose. Due to horrendous mouth ulcers and a rash I have had ro give up, having two weeks off and then going on 5m dose. The thing is I still can't eat or speak due to ulcers and the rash which started on my chest is now slowly popping up all over , it is very dry and has blisters and is weeping oh joy! I am beside myself but don't get to see onc untill new year due to christmas. Anyone recommend what helps with the rash. Tried aloe vera cream , eurax itch relief and e45itch relief but hasn't helped at all. I am scared of going back on the treatment at all as side effets so severe anyone tried then lower dose ? I havent been able to eat anything for three weeks now and been off the treatment for a week any ideas how long it will take to get rid of ulcers and rash. Husband said he will liquidise christmas dinner ugg!!!
Thank you Belinda. I remember seeing posts from funny face in the past but can't remember where they were now.
Try not to worry about your appointment with your onc. I was terrified last week but came home happy! I'm sure you will or as happy as you can be living with this awful disease. Have a fantastic Christmas.
Love Sheila. Xxx
