Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

It's very grey but pretty warm - strange sort of day .Looks like the weather is going to get a bit hectic tomorrow with the tail end of the hurricane coming in .Hoping the builder I've got doing some work tomorrow gets it finished before the 60 mile an hour winds arrive!!!

Morning - how are you all ?I have had some good patches but also some bad ones - not great today - plucked up courage to open appointment letter from breast clinic to find it is tomorrow at 9 !!! Too late to cancel now - at least only have 24 hours to panic I guess !! 😳

Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

Looks quite similar to my week Belle !!! I Seem to be a bit calmer this afternoon -been out with dog again and didn't leg it back so quickly this time !!! Fingers crossed the last few days were a blip and I will continue to have some more sleep and some calmer times .And fingers crossed for the magnet !!!

Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

Hiya Jill, we seem to be chasing the elusive sleep!!!!! The pill that I take helps with my anxiety and I could fall asleep easily but once, the hot flushes and night sweats occur, there goes my 💤💤💤

So if need be, I normally will take the pill during the day.....found that my anxiety is at its worst in the mornings

Thats not bad at all.....venturing out with your dog 😄

Hopefully the magnet will work after the month trial...

Wishing you more hours of sleep for tonight and nights to come

Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

Morning all,3 hours -sleep better than none I guess .Not quite as bad anxiety wise today, ventured out with dog but not very far and walked very quickly on way back !!! sleep certainly impacts on the ability to cope- hopefully will get more than 3 hours tonight ! Hot flushes certainly do not aid sleep ,starting 3rd week with the magnet -supposed to take 4 before you see a difference if it's going to work .

Magnet not helped so far but takes a month at least to work if it's going to .

Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

No, haven’t tried sage pills at all.... read that it works for some women. Another seems to work is the red clover, haven’t tried too!!

Hows your magnet? Do you find it helpful?

Was so naive....daft even....to think that when I was first diagnosed, after mx and treatments, All will be business as usual but NO..... have been so struggling with the side effects, definitely life changing. Try very hard to be positive daily but it does get to you....you know what I mean.

Yup, it is soul destroying......assassination of our former self....

A BIG Hug for you, JIll..... Belle xxx

Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

I think there is def a hormonal element to the anxiety therefore I guess it makes sense that anxiety goes hand in hand with the flushes .Have you tried sage tablets -that's the only thing I haven't tried yet .Sleep is so important to everything -hoping I revert to getting at least some rest again soon -it's soul destroying isn't it Belle ?

Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

Hiya Jill,

 

Whew.....we sound alike.....hot flushes then anxiety....Why is it that we get anxiety after the hot flushes?? Can’t comprehend!!

 

I think I have resigned to the fact that I could not get a proper night sleep. The hours I get really depends on the intensity and frequency of the hot flushes and anxiety! Come to think of it.....I have not got complete night rest since my diagnosis!!! 

 

Heres to better days and and restful nights plus anxiety free

Re: Need Hug or Kick up the Backside

Hi Belle ,hot flushes wake me up then anxiety kicks in .Last night was hell - fell asleep for about an hour -husband came to bed and woke me up and then that was me for the rest of the night .Hoping I will revert to sleeping reasonably again because it makes a massive difference to the level of anxiety I think -or is it the other way round ? ? Don't have accupuncture til next Tuesday now - wish I did !!! Next week have 2 sessions so hopefully that will set me back on track.
