Hi all, I'm exhausted and so panic stricken, my sweaty palms actually created a puddle on my desk, today. Any moral support would be lovely. x
Hi Vplum ...
Moral support on its way ... no sweat ... well you did post under "laughter is the best medicine" ; ))
But on a serious note ... sending you lots of supportive vibes ... these side effects can be pretty draining .. I've had so many different side effects over the years, not sure what "normal" feels like ..
Hope your feeling better soon .... chrissie x
Coo eee! Just finished latest mood swing so feeling better. Five mile walk and pub meal with work colleagues probably helped!
There can be life after cancer but it takes time to re adjust to a new normal.
Can't help but what you have said about Planet Cancer and back to Earth has hit a cord. (wife of newly diagnosed hubby) I feel at the moment I have a one way ticket to Planet Cancer. Lets board the earth flight right now.
Hi, went to bed just after posting, exhausted from crying and thinking dark thoughts. Thanks for the offer though. I have used the cancer planet phrase twice today. God will it ever get any better. x
Just come across your message which you posted two days after I received my dire diagnosis. It made me smile because I have been talking about "cancerland" and wanting back in my life.
One step at a time, I think that's happening. Starting chemo next week with a mixture of fear and anticipation...
Very best wishes to you all lovely people who share on this forum
Hi Cig, so are you managing to keep one foot on planet earth, or has it engulfed you? I know how hard the fear factor is on you. My GP put me on prozac to help and recently Diazapan which is bloody wonderful stuff. But I'm not working so can take advantage. I was doing the brave warrior thing to begin with and then, mainly cos of support from people on here, accepted its OK to give yourself a break. Hope this helps a little bit, others no doubt will have other words of support. Big hug take care and keep in touch with us. V
Thanks so much for your kind words. You're right about giving yourself a break. I found a little one at Maggie's in Barts the other day. Wonderful place full of calm. Going to have a massage next week to see if that helps... The local park has also seen A LOT of me...
Big hug. Will keep in touch and thanks for your support.
Hi all, been on the cancer planet for over two years with hubby, we nearly didn't come back form planet cancer this week, a melt down of the Real planet Cancer would be great!! So a lovely new thread to follow, lots of advice from this wife/carer/battering ram if anyone needs it, my mantra too, try and find the funny side!! If you can. Love to you all we deserve it!! Carol x
