I wish we were going to get the snow, I'm still a big kid and love it, provided I don't have to go anywhere.
When I was a teenager, we had terrible blizzards in South Wales and got completely cut off, and my father had a heart attack shovelling snow. I still think I must be the only person who's dialled 999 and got no answer!

Good morning all,
it was meeeee that started of the Tossing. I meant to say crossed off and went I reread my message I saw flipping auto predict or whatever it's called had changed it to tossed. I apologised to Helena and she decided to keep it at tossed.
Jane, I had frozen shoulders on both sides, plus tendonitis, bursitis and fluid, Had injections and was doing physio when I was diagnosed. The injections really helped and both shoulders were not painful though I never got full movement back. Had to put a stop to physio when I got diagnosed, now they are back with a vengance, As to the cording, i haven't got any swelling or "cord" just a very sore armpit, it feel like the skin is too tight and pulling, it's getting a bit worse each day. Janey, am losing the sense of humour, feel like I'm always in pain somewhere. Still, no point wallowing in it, sure a good nights sleep would help though.
It a damp and gloomy here. Forecast is for rain all day and possibly of it turning to snow this evening. At least if it does snow it will be bright, Not this grey miserable gloom.
was going to do housework today (himself is on a play date) but again doing a Scarlett O'Hara. The most I'm going to do is put fresh sheets on the bed. That's one thing I never put off, if I was rich and had a maid I'd have fresh ones every day xx

hope you have a good day. Xx
was thinking about your comment re 'feeling Different' can definitely identify with that...not working these days, but am aware of being more sensitive ( esp in week 3) and maybe being a bit more grumpy with friends who keep changing dates/times...hate that, as have to build arrangements round my other appointments!
Not sure how long you have been battling this foe, Clair, but I know its a lot to take on at the beginning and even 16 years in! hugsx

all off to bed I see, well, Charys, if it snows...best thing for cording is, strip to the waist and roll in the snow!
(now, would I jest about such a thing?).
Just saw your later comment, yes do check with the bcn first...sure she would apporove( tho she will think we are all nuts!)
One of the reasons I pop in here is to hear if there is anything a little risqué happening!!🌚'

Lesley, you have my sympathy as I was having treatment for a frozen shoulder for several months prior to my BC diagnosis. In fact I had a steroid injection into the joint in September - and intense Physio that had to stop on my diagnosis as the Physio said he wasn't trained to deal with post breast surgery Physio!! It hasn't been helped by a fall I had onto it on Boxing Day. Been having Physio since surgery with a lady with specific interest in post breast cancer Physio, and my arm is nearly as good as it was before the op. Had my positioning scans for rads last week and they definitely aggravated my shoulders - not looking forward to 4 weeks of it really.
Rubycat - just off to google Mondors for a bit of self diagnosis!!

No idea Lady H, there are another couple of community threads I've noticed.....benchland is one of them, and 'how's everyone doing' , they seem to have lots of activity.....but don't know if ours has more. I like the fact that people just pop in here, new people all the time and feel welcome when they get here. I'm not saying they don't feel welcome elsewhere, but I haven't 'been' elsewhere to comment lol
Rubcay, just called us tossers!!!!!!!! Either she is very rude, or it's an 'in' joke I don't know about!.?

Evening fluffies, lots of poorly poppets on here tonight, so love to you all. Lesley, Charys, Jane - I had Mondor Cords - (which I self diagnosed as no-one interested/knew what they were ), under breast - there is some info on this site, but says they disappear by themselves - NO. Have had a look, but can't find the website now, but remember it said about 'popping' the cords, which I did (was a bit squeamish, but it was ok) and they disappeared. Haven't been back since. Irritates me when the professionals don't know what things are. Grrr.
Moijan - weather report from Salisbury - little bit of rain, no snow (boo hoo).
Clair - you do need to be careful with your work, you could approach Occi Health to reduce hours/change some of the more rumbunctious duties if you wanted. I know what school is like, and sometimes things kick off and you're in the midst before you even think.... protect yourself.
Oh Lesley, your headaches are the pits. I've now had 2 days pain free and wish I could send you some too. Saw my handsome physio today, but hiss boo, no touchy feeliness. He couldn't understand why or how I could move around again, said it should take months for muscles to repair. However, I shall just take however many painfree days I get and be grateful. Also had back x-rayed with a delightful guy who was touchy feely and thought I was under 50. Yeah. Got the isotope xray now on 23rd to look forward to. As you say, these b appointments never end to they.
Love to Sue for your mammo and to delightful Delly & that you have a lovely time together.

Well Jane and Charys, If stretching the answer I'm stuffed! I can't lift my arm up because of frozen shouldet. I'll see what they say in Monday. It's just one thing after another isn't it?
My head is thumping, just want to take my strong prescription meds and crawl into bed but I'm waiting for this phone from recently diagnosed girl to phone for chat/support, been expecting call since 5pm. Think she's building herself up to it so don't want to call her or or put her of until tomorrow, can remember what it felt like just hearing those words.
Enjoy your Bath Clair. It's early days yet, sure you'll soon be back in the middle of things. Take your time, it's a huge step going back to work, you're very brave so give yourself a pat on the back xx

......but yes, I think Clair should have a day off work too...and everybody else......expect Helena who should have her rads and then come home anyway as she finds it too slippery. Ok, we are now not far off 3,000 posts. We got to 2,000 on Christmas Eve was it ? So does that mean we have added nearly a thousand posts in 3 weeks....is that possible ??
