Sounds like you are still high on steroids Fi, I hate them with vengeance, so my lovely oncologist has let me off most of them, but I still feel slightly crazy on them and sleeping is impossible. So rest is really important. Are you drinking loads to keep highdrated and flush the rubbish out. Nag over😉
Thank you all for your support, it is appreciated. I think we are all really scared of what the future might hold for us, even when when we are being positive and strong. My friend was told three weeks ago she had only a couple of months and there was nothing more be done. When I saw her she was really positive and bright, so it was a shock when the end came so quickly. Her poor husband is in bits. I have a card that I am trying to write for the family but somehow the words just won’t come this afternoon.

Oh Badboob, so sorry to hear about your friend 😪
So my first T is going okay so far, but I'm only 2 days into it. I'm still feeling a bit spaced out, to be honest, after the episode on Friday. I'm feeling very cautious about how I'm going to be, having read how Aneeebel and ElliesMum have been during the course of it all. I'm not sleeping too well, but then I don't seem to after a chemo session 😴 My knees are aching already.
I'm trying to be positive but it's so hard, isn't it, especially when we hear about your friend, Badboob. Chemo robs you of everything, from health through to hair through to self-esteem. Hubby asked me today if I was ok. Of course im not f**king ok, nothing is normal anymore. I don't do change very well, I like normal.
Sorry, ladies, for having a moan, I guess that's chemo for you.

I have been catching up with everyone’s posts from the festive period! Phew! What a roll a coaster we’ve all had. Fiona, I hope you are OK after your T. I sailed though by first one, but boy this one, my 4th and final one is being a bit of a bit*h! So I hope all goes well with you. I found resting in the afternoon helped and trying not to do too much, but, easier said than done.
Anneeebel, you hit the nail on the head about emotions and what people say. I even snapped at my stupid sister in law ( who has ignored me since diagnosis) because she started to talk to me with that tone which really gets your goat and if another person says to me ...oh my mother’s friend’s granny didn’t have to have chemo first with her breast cancer. I will scream YES, but they probably weren’t HER f*****g positive! Grrrrrrrrrr!
My final straw was on Boxing Day when I learnt that my friend who had been diagnosed with stage 4 inoperable lung and bone cancer at the same time as I got my diagnosis, had died on Christmas morning. I howled like a dog. I am only so grateful that I managed to get to see her last week. So all in all it’s been a bit s**t.
Excuse my language and let all hope the new year will see us all on the onwards and upwards projection.
