Thank you , Helen, Nicky and Janete, for your support.
Strange thing though once I had cyber shouted the phone started to ring with appointments. It just felt ridiculous that part of my stress is sorting things out and thinking there are things they are not telling me, a little paranoid
However,I do think about those ladies out there who for one reason or another are unable to sort through the mess of appointments.
On the Poldark theme I actually think the first series was better, the tension just isn't there. Honestly the books are brilliant if they do keep to the story a lovely young doctor should be coming to Cornwall. Oh dear , I think my naughty alter ego is going to get naughty again !
Thank you once again I don't know how I managed before I started talking to you , take care

Hi lovely ladies this is the real Marie not my naughty alter ego,
Just want to have a rant, I feel I am constantly having to sort my treatment out for myself. It was assumed I must be okay because I turn up on time ! I flagged up that actually I've been finding things difficult. It was decided I needed some cognitive therapy for anxiety, guess what I have had to chase this up , calls not returned and generally made to feel a bit of a nuisance and now even more anxious.
So sorry for this , but it does upset me , read somewhere we are suppose to have a care plan . Has anyone had one ? Marie xxx

Tut Tut some people really have got big imaginations (Chocolates!) I have a wedding band on my finger and a baby up my corset. I am not having triplets , you naughty girls. Please come to terms with the fact that Ross is mine. Oh dear I think I've another attack of the vapours , maybe I need some peanut M&Ms love Marie POLDARK !!!!!
I'm sorry I haven't posted for a few days but I have been so tired with the wbr. I don't feel Ill with it but very slow and wobbly! I have to have several naps but I am half way through so that's good.
Bev I wish you well with your appointment next week. I am thinking of you.
Helen I hope you are feeling better. Guess what I am having in a little while. A bacon butty!
Nicky, I hope your scans go well.
Stress head, congratulations on your results.
Belinda, I hope the transfusion goes well. I had one last year and it helped a lot.
Chocolates, enjoy your well earned break.
Lots of love to everyone. Sheila xxx
To the new ladies welcome, I haven't been on here long although diagnosed Nov 2013 with bone mets. They are a lovely group of ladies, they really are my new friends full of useful info and support.
Cyber pregnancy is different to normal pregnancy , no mood swings, or swollen ankles etc. I have shiny hair , a firm bosom and a twinkle in my eye. Life is good at Nampara . Ross is very attentive and life is good.
Oh my goodness Ross has just broke the bedroom door down , oh I think I have an attack of the vapours, Oh my goodness Ross. (Have to go !) Marie
Hi 3n3, welcome to the friendliest thread going! It's all a bit overwhelming at first isn't it but you will settle and this site will help you find your way to accepting your new life. I am on Zometa, have been since dx 5 years ago. I could have changed but as it's worked so far I thought why mess around, I have a port and that would still need flushing every 4 weeks so have stuck with it. I do find I get a bit more achy just before and after for a few days but otherwise it's no problem. I would advise you to drink plenty to flush your kidneys. Denosunab is quicker so you might prefer that but they both work. As the others said, pop in and out whenever you want you'll find there is someone around usually within hours xx
Just a really quick one to say hello to Lindybutterfly, sorry you find yourself eligible but glad you've found us, it's a busy but supportive thread full of lovely slightly crazy women. You'll have a laugh as well as getting lots of support here. If you register for it there is a Live Chat session on Tuesday evenings 8.30-9.30.
Stresshead, great news!
Chocolates, make sure it is only two days going into work!
Everyone else have as good a weekend as possible xxxx
