CT - hope you're OK, this i shard enough without having to worry about your other half.
Starfire - he has more hair than me though which is making me a tad jealous
Rosie - almost there for you then, just think in 3 weeks chemo is all over for you (apart from the crappy side effects).
Its my good week this week and I intend to make the most of it and fully appreciate feeling close to normal

Shi...thank you for the advise. I really don’t know what it was about today’s that freaked me out...
Starfire that pictures a little piece of heaven!! I’ve got 1 more FEC after this one. Essentially they didn’t do the didn’t do the last T but still the 3 FEC so I gained 3 weeks back...chemo nurse today said oh they can always add some more at the end...I thought “can the b@ll@cks add it on!!! They’d have to catch me first”
I’m guessing by the time I’ve had surgery we will then all be somewhere on the radiation train together!
CT hope you’re holding up ok xxxx

I know what you mean about each cycle becoming harder to face BUT think how good it is going to feel when you know it’s going to be the last one 🤪
Aliand, what a beautiful picture of you and your daughter you must be so so proud of each other. You look so glamorous.
CT - big hug to you x

Aliand you look amazing...big hug for your daughter too. That’s certainly how to inspire them to be strong.
CT I’m so so sorry that you are having to deal with this on top of everything else...can you talk to him calmly? Make him realise this stress will have a detrimental effect on your health!!!!
Thanks for the support ladies...at least I know I’m normal, thought I was being a bit of a baby!!!
Aliand mid June...I met a girl outside the oncology unit on Friday and she was offered a trial of just 4 sessions or the standard 6...however if the 4 weren’t effective she’d get four more. She said she took the 6 wasn’t ready to gamble!!!!

Oh wow Aliand, you look great and so brave! 💪
Rosie, I think it's normal for us to be having these ups and downs. I'm currently on my week of feeling normal and I just felt really sad yesterday, I probably need a good cry but not feeling so miserable today. Have you been offered counselling? I have but heard nothing since 😕

Aliand - you both look stunning, love the earrings and necklace, you rock being bald do you know why you are having 8 sessions - really feel for you but you are half way we'll get through to the end together
Rosieh - You are completely normal, I think its getting worse each round as I know I'm going to feel so bad after for 10 days Never mind worrying the day before chemo, I've been dreading the next round since I walked out the hospital from the last chemo. Good luck tommorrow brave lady - hopefully knowing you are so close to the end will fet you through,
Paloma - wow when you write it all down in one list there are so many side effects.

Hi Paloma - welcome, gosh thats a long list of side effects, I guess mine are similar but you dont realise til you list them like that how much we have to go through.
Rosie, you are perfectly normal, of course you dread each treatment its horride, just read Palomas list to remind yoursel how awful all this is. But know I am really jealous that you are so near the end, I've still got 4 to do and even without any delays that means it will be middle of June before I get out of chemo hell ! Now that really is a long way away. Not sure if that helps you but I hope it does.
I went to a party on Saturday night and braved the bald, it really did feel liberating. This is me and my gorgeous daughter who put this up on instagram saying "much love for my mama" we got 97 likes mostly her friends !!! She has told very few people about my cancer so this was a big thing for her.
a week of glorious normalness awaits me before back to the chemo hell and the new drugs = T oh how I dread it.
no swim cap needed, channeling my inner Duncan Goodhue - but I think I might be a little more attractive !
