Missy that’s great having a friend donate that to you. I think you need a TV in the bedroom and a goose down pillow. As Angela says get the occupational therapist to provide lots of free aids to help you in the house. If you are on immunotherapy there are very good things coming out of that, even cures according to the news.
as Angela says maybe HER drugs will help too.
I’m off to buy comfy shoes today. GP doesn’t know if it’s Letrozole side effect or plantar fasciitis or something but suggests comfy supportive shoes amongst other things. Something else to make me look old 😕👞👞👟
i wanted to holiday abroad this year but insurance is just too complicated as I’ve had lots of other health problems in last five years and they want details of everything 😩. So I have organised a bit of a trip for our last week holiday of the year. We are going to Windsor to see the castle etc for one night, then beautiful Bath for three nights, where I’m meeting a few chemo buddies, then on to my favourite spiritual home St Ives for three nights. Can’t wait. 😀🏰🕍🏖🚙💜

I’m a 38dd, or I was when I had two! Going to ask the plastic surgeon to reduce me down to no bigger than a C. Weirdly I kind of resent my big droopy surviving boob because I have to match up to it.

Carole, I'm with you with the big prints and long scarves -- so glad the weather is a bit cooler and I can wear nice drapey scarves or long cardies without getting boiling hot! Nobody tells you how uncomfortable a falsie is. I'm still very sore in that area (swollen glands etc due to secondaries and also inflammation from the chemo sometimes) so I can only cope with a softie. No matter how many different bras I try, I can never find anything that is comfy all day. I honestly wish I'd asked them to do a boob reduction on my good side at the same time, so I wasn't so lopsided and could just go bra-less all the time! Hey-ho.

Angela, I think we can cope with more than a few rude words after all we've been through, don't you?!! ;-)
Carole and Mishy, totally understand your feelings, I had 15 good years after my first diagnosis and all that time it was at the back of my mind somewhere that it might come back. Having said that, as time goes on you do worry about it less, and it honestly does help you to enjoy life more, because unlike most people, we genuinely understand that hey, we're not here forever, only for now!
So Carole, enjoy your celebrations, and Mishy enjoy your lovely granddaughter. How quickly a year has past, surely she was only just born a few weeks ago! Saw my six-year-old grandson last week, such a boost to the spirits getting a guided tour from him of his favourite playground, complete with descriptions of what you can do in the sandpit, the pirate ship, etc!
All the best to everyone, with and without secondaries, hang on in there and enjoy the sunshine...which we just had a very brief glimpse of here, even though it's only just stopped raining!
