Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hello ladies! Haven't been on for a while so just catching up. Mishy, Shi I wore heather shimmer and also blue mascara and eyeliner too and also spent far too much on secondhand 501s 😂

 

Jencat, glad to hear you've been back to work, take things easy and I hope it helps to make you feel more like yourself.

 

I discovered I had a swollen armpit on my non-surgery side a few weeks ago and finally had my appointment today. It turns out I'm growing a 3rd boob 😳😱😂 Apparently 2% of women have breast tissue in their armpit and one of them happens to be me! Had ultrasound and everything is ok they think it's probable the tamoxifen that's made it swell. OH said he was going to take me to the seafront and charge people to look at my 3 boobs 😂🤣😂The consultant look horrified.

 

Buddyfan, hope you're doing ok? I'm off to Ireland on holiday on Sunday, getting quite excited now 😊

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Thank you all for your kind wishes and for thinking about me x Yesterday pm went ok and I only cried once! (one of the voluntary helpers had come in and she was telling me that her mum and SIL had suffered with anxiety after they'd recovered from cancer and she understood why I'd be feeling it too. She also offered to come into school to help me sometimes, which was kind) Anyway, we didn't have the training after all as there'd been a mix up, but tbh I was quite pleased about that as it meant I could just chat and potter!

I'd picked up my Fit For Work note from the doctor's before I went into school and was glad I did as it made my back to work meeting easier as the note is for 6wks (and states it can be extended if needed) and stipulates what work I should be doing, ie only 1/4 or a 1/3 for the first 2weeks and then slowly extended, so I'm only working Fri morn this week and next and having another meeting after that to see how I'm coping.

I'm not sure if I can even remember how to take the register, so that might be half the morning gone doing that! Smiley Happy xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Jencat 👍👍👍well done darling getting first day back done, it’s really strange the first day, but you’ve ticked this off now on the journey another hurdle done 👍👍👍it does get easier and your routine and brain do click back in, it takes a few weeks for things to click back into place, so don’t be to hard on yourself if your not back at 100 Miles an hour for the first few months😘😘mishy, I’ve gone full animal print mental and don’t care if it doesn’t suit my curly mullet, I’m owning it 🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪 I really wanted a pair of those white Fila trainers that are in too, but I looked a bit of a plank when I tried some on, so bit miffed, still want some though 🤪🤪🤪🤪💕💕💕💕✨✨✨✨Shi xx

Hi Jencat - I'm from May 2017 group - I just bouncing around on here and see your message - good luck for today! Once you've made the return it's surprising how quickly it all returns. I work in school too and it's amazing that once you're surrounded by the children once again life appears normal - it really does help with the healing process. Just don't overdo it though and ensure you get plenty of rest and relaxation at the end of the day. Thinking of you x

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

First day back at work today after being away for 11mths! (well not a whole day actually, just this pm for a meeting with my Head and some IT training) I've got mixed feelings-when I had to 'leave' in Oct because my onc said I couldn't be around the children, I couldn't imagine being absent for so long and couldn't wait to get back, now I'm not sure that I feel ready to return as I don't feel 100% fit physically and especially mentally, but I suppose this feeling is normal?! Part of me thinks perhaps i should have had a few more weeks off, but then maybe it might have been harder to return.

I dreamt I had a class of children last night and I lost them when they went to the toilet before lunch, think it must be anxiety manifesting itself in my sleep! xx

Well done Cassie Smiley Happy Very impressed you were able to climb a mountain! (and play a violin at the top!) I'm not surprised you felt a bit achy, I'm worn out just climbing a hill! xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂mishy, is forgotten about heather shimmer, it was similar to Bon Bon that number17 did and what about number 17s blondie too everyone had that and miners make up, remember how bright and colourful miners was 😁😁😁 did you shrink your 501’s to fit in the bath mishy like they told you to? Luckily there was a shop that imported from USA near me where we could pick up 501’s second hand at good £ back in the 80’s ❤️❤️❤️and you made me 😁😁reminding us about the red lippy 🤣😂🤣😂🤣that’s back on trend for a/W 2018 👍👍👍and I cant believe your granddaughter is nearly 1, where’s this last year gone, it only seems 5 minutes since she was born. 💕💕💕✨✨✨Shi xx

Heather shimmer or pink shimmer rimmel also wore Constance Caroll and def the electric blue mascara had a rimmel blue shimmer eyeliner too haha tge late 80s thought i was very sophisticated with my red lipstick and worn out 501s actually paid good money for second hand 501s from a shop in Newcastle which cashed in on the trend worn with a waistcoat of course 😂😂😂😂 oh and the corkscrew perm 👍

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Mishy, glad you enjoyed mamma Mia, I’ve not been yet and think we are all being caught out with a bit of a 😢over the slightest thing, think it’s all part of the journey. Did you have the poncho pink loopy from number17 or were you a sweet sizzle or twighlight teaser gal Mishy? And did you finish off with electric blue mascara and liner too? I did back in the day and did you ever try them polly papilliton bendy pink rollers 🤣😂🤣🤣🤣😂they were something else 😂🤣😂🤣😂weren’t they 🤣🤣🤣😂🤣😂💕💕✨✨✨Shi xx
