Can I ask what dose everyone is on my book say 120mg and was wondering if this was a reduced dose anyway which is why it would have to be stopped completely if neuropathy was due to chemo just having doubts as to whether I should have agreed to go ahead with no 6 😢

Here you go ladies, not bad for a first attempt - probably a bit darker than they should be, but I'm hoping that will add to the flavour 😂
You have such wise words AnnaKarenina, and you are right. When I've been asked today how I am, I have replied with not great instead of my usual, brilliant thanks (regardless of what's going on!).
None of us need to be SuperGirl 24/7, its ok to have 'moments'
Thankfully my aches have subsided over the day. I'm hoping normality may start creeping in from tomorrow ...... but if it doesn't, that's fine too!!

JC1262, that is amazing. Here's hoping Friday happens and you can celebrate before telling us what it is like the other side of the chemo carousel.
Lesley, I am so sorry you had a rough and emotional night. I think letting it out is the way to go. I was so busy being Pollyanna ("reasons to be glad") and 'strong' at the beginning of this pesky process that I think I didn't really allow myself to feel anything. I have been fortunate that I haven't had too many emotional meltdowns, but I have been caught by a few since I let my defences down a bit and you know what? I think I have done better for being more authentic and open to the rubbishness. I've learned it is not only possible to be resilient and vulnerable, but that the two probably go together. So, feel the feels and know that there is a community here who gets it and is on your side no matter what.
And how is the bread? I am in awe of your culinary skills. And tiger nut milk is an alien concept, but I am longing to hear how it went.
Anadan, how are you feeling now? I hope the next injection is not such a brute and you're able to feel more human soon. Like you, I am a huge Headspace fan. The 'cancer' packages have been invaluable to me. I am not great about doing it every day, but always feel better when I do make the time to do it.
Bythesea: wow, 28th February. How are you doing with the news? As Lesley says, we are all getting ready to hold your hand and, for those of us who will be following in your surgical footsteps, you are now officially our post-chemo surgery-slaying leader!
Hope everyone else is doing well? I am taking my place in the chemo chair tomorrow for cycle 6, so am frantically finishing off 'stuff' in that weird activity phase that I always seem to have before chemo. I never achieve much though . . .

Nice one JC
Is that you finished then or do you go onto Rads?
I've just had a confirmation call re last pre chemo check and last chemo - I still think it is bad that you have to chase these things!

Wow Bythesea, that has leapt out from behind a hedge on you hasn't it???
We will all be here to hold your hand!
Were you at the LGFB session this week - should add to the Glam look - you go rock it hun!!
I'm trying to get healthy with all my messings about - I cook 99% of all meals from scratch but there's a lot of rubbish in breads and stuff so I want to try and go self sufficient???
I am also going to try making 'milk' from tiger nuts ..... I've tried almond and soya milk and I don't like it, so I thought I would give the tigers a go!
Have a lovely evening with your loved ones tonight - I will be saving my snuggling for the weekend!

I'm feeling much better today - bones are still aching but not as bad as yesterday.
I'm trying to make some ciabatta bread - yesterday's attempts were a disaster - Mr Hollywood had the wrong ingredient amounts on his website and today my food processor has stopped working.
Quick trip to John Lewis and I'll be attempting another batch today 👩🏻🍳 .... I'll let you know how I get on!
