perhaps the lady was trying to be helpful about wig cut at least she wasnt suggesting you trim your bush rofl x
SueW, probably best not to. If there's another way to do something I will! I read about the flat to the nose bit but was holding my hand vertically instead of horizontally, doing it now not sure how the hell it worked really! 😂
Hi Karen, I do feel ok today just a bit fuzzy headed every now and again. Think I actually felt better yesterday although was a little tired round lunchtime but it wore off in the afternoon. We seem to be following a similar pattern (albeit I didn't get the backache) but I kept waking feeling quite sick the first night. Maybe it's the way they do it in Norfolk! Hopefully that means you'll get a nice 7 hours sleep 😴 tonight!
Showed one of the ladies at the LGFB a photo of me in Shirley (my wig) she said it definitely needed trimming as I looked like an old lady! Not sure if I was happy about that or not! 😕
I've had a go and it does seem a about right! I just fin measurements like that so weird (like arm span finger tip of one arm across body to finger tip of other arm is supposed to be your height, there are loads of others, just weird).
Dizzy this is what i mean sorry not sure why it is sideways if you look you can see where my top finger is lands roughly where my current hairline is x
Sounds great Meesh, I’ve alsways been a sucker for make up and love to try different products although I haven’t got much of a clue how to do things properly and just try and blag it!! Quite liking the idea of a sparkly bald head though so maybe have to invest in a truck load of bronzer!! Love it that we can laugh at our mishaps ...... like I said laughter is the best medicine!!
Have you felt ok today Meesh?
Feeling a bit tired this afternoon, but have managed a bowl of pasta with my 2nd lot of steroids so hoping I keep the sickness feeling away!! Haven’t stopped weeing today, yesterday I drank loads but it didn’t seem to be coming out, now I can’t stop!!!!
Hello everyone, now back from LGFB session and just catching up on all your comments. Karen really glad to hear you're feeling better today. Chaffinch also glad to hear you're also doing ok and getting some food in you, will all your treatments be in the afternoon? Must be hard as you're still full of steroids and then trying to sleep. Hopefully, you'll be able to get some sleep tonight and be feeling a bit brighter tomorrow!
I think we should make it our mission (those when not working) to see how many lol moments we can give our working fellow chemo buddies! I know when I was in the office and I did a sneaking peak at the forum I was also 😂 out loud in an office of people! Whilst making me look slightly nuts, did cheer me up though!
Karen, the question about the bronzer really made me laugh, unfortunately I didn't have that question to hand. However, when I was with the wig lady and she was telling me I had to get wig on my hairline, I did ask how will I know where that is when I have no hair! She said you would be able to tell as your face will be a slightly different colour as it is more weathered than your scalp.
Of course if you're going to bare you head and you love your bronzer then maybe do the whole thing, at least it'd give it some sparkle 🌟✨🌟✨💫
The LGFB session was good. I don't really wear make up (mascara and maybe eyeliner) unless I'm going out somewhere special, didn't have a clue what half the things were! They show you how to use everything, and there was a range of makes in mine (Lancôme make up remover and brow pencil, Clinique cleanser/ moisturiser and line concealer, bare minerals lipstick and blusher, dolce & gabana lip stick and liner, no 7 tinted moisturiser, powder, eye shadow, colour calmer and lip gloss, Rimmel mascara, Avon eyeliner and elie Saab perfume). I think some had slightly different bits in them but were more or less similar (sorry Karen no bronzer though 😂). All comes in a nice little toiletry type bag.
they also show you how to work out your eyebrows if you lose them and give you a little pamphlet showing this and other tips.
should really sign up girls if you haven't already. ☺️
Quick question ladies....once all our head hair falls out and we’re not rocking the action man look how will we know where to stop our makeup as we won’t have a hair line, am I gonna have use bronzer over my whole head!! Should have got Meesh to ask question at LGFG!!! Xxx
Glad your doing ok Chaffinch....I’ve had bath and now gonna have some toast...feeling a lot better than I did over night! Xxx
Night time is definitely the worst, enjoying a nice chill out today! OH in bed still as I think I didturbed his sleep 😱 if only they had any idea how horrible this all is!!
Sparkles much needed today...thank you 🌟🌟🌟
Thanks CK. I will look on the website and order it! I struggle to do anything which requires stretching my arm, most inconvenient.. :-)
Wish everyone a glittering day today..
Morning, hope everyone is on the up and that Karana & Chaffinch are getting through day 2 OK.
Wh's in today? Is it Shi & Sam? Did I miss someone?
I think my nausea has finally gone but I'm too scared to remove my SeaBands. I'm such a wuss.
Autumn has finally arrived in the lady garden I'm refusing to test the hair on my head though
Morning ladies...didn’t have a good night I’m afraid, felt very nauseas, dizzy acidy, uncomfortable, headachy....you name it I had it! The good news is I’ve come thru the other side and now had my andronston and steroids and got a coffee and a biscuit before I try some toast!
I managed to watch apprentice, really don’t like the girls much, and like you say Shi don’t talk about football if you don’t know anything about it, I cringed when she said has anyone heard of Jeff Hirst 😱
Good luck today Sue, Sam & Ali 🚂🚂💪🚂🚂
Have fun Meesh at LGFG, look forward to hearing about it later!
Glad I put a smile on you ladies faces last night, this is a nasty thing we are all going thru so being able to laugh is the best medicine!
love & hugs to you all 🌟🌟✨🌟🌟✨
Morning ladies! How's everyone feeling this morning? Karana, Chaffinch I hope you got a good nights sleep. I managed 7 hours uninterrupted 🙂 Not sure if that's done to the lorazepam or whether down to chamomile tea, Epsom salt bath or the meditation, but hey if it works, who cares!
Got my LGFB session today, hair still looks like roadkill after the cold cap so will definitely where a hat! Done some yoga this morning, felt a little shaken but just had porridge and steroids and feel a bit better now.
Shi, Sam good luck for today, remember to drink loads, I'll wave to you from the drivers carriage! 👨🏻✈️🚂🦄🌈🦄🌈🌟🦄🌈🌟💃🏻✨🕺🏻🕺🏻💃🏻🦄🦄
SueW, good luck with appointment this morning, glad you got your strange smelly armpit issue sorted 😊
Fairy dust, CK has advised she's been using some sort of hand squeezing thing to help her sore chemo arm, perhaps you should ask her about it and give it a go!
Hope me everyone else is doing ok?
Hi Shi and all
I'm fine, except for major pain in my arm which is used for chemo IV. My vein is not happy with chemo at all.
Hope all does go well for all going through chemo tomorrow / this week. Please check with chemo nurse the flow / speed of chemo going through cannula, as faster the speed, more likely to cause vein issue and subsequent pain.
Take care of yourselves.
I know Shi, the girls are annoying, but they should have won! That speech was cringeworthy and so was the singing! xx
