Hello to all,
I am from Northumberland, My husband and myself live in Newbiggin by the Sea.
I have tried and tried to make contact with others like myself who are living more locally than so many living in the South etc.
I was diagnosed with hormone related breast cancer on 5th May 2015,also with diverticulosos,and osteoporosus,and with Chronic Fategue.Sorry if some of my spelling is incorrect.
I am a lady aged 80 years of age ,my husband being 85 years of age.
Unfutunately we no longer have our own transport so it is not easy for us to get to support groups,now as there are none at all in our village.
It would be lovely to meet someone in the same situation .At the moment although I have a lovely Husband and a lovely family ,I am sure most will understand when I say I do not like placing a burden onto them ,when over the past few weeks I have felt very alone ,in as much as that talking about how I feel emotionally would make them worry more.
I spoke with my Husband only yesterday about this ,but all he could say /do was to try and comfort me and telling me I am not alone bless him.
So, having someone like mysaelf to talk with would I believe be helpful,and relieve the stress /pressure on him and my family.
Thank you to all who are reading my post
Not far from me, I live just down the road from the Maypole
Many years ago I used to be the scorer for the 3rd team at Alvechurch Cricket Club and know the village really well
