Hello everyone on this dark, cold, wet and windy 14 November. It's my birthday today and after 3 weeks of radiotherapy, all I want to do is spend it in bed! I have 2 more weeks (plus 1 day as I missed a session) to go and am counting the hours as well as the days. I feel more queasy now than I did with chemotherapy and so achy, shaky and, yes, a bit flaky at times. I mentioned this, and asked some other questions, to the doctor this week who replied that she didn't know, hadn't heard of that before or just shrugged. The good ol' shrug, eh? Says a thousand words without opening your mouth. So I came away none the wiser but I did manage to get a blood test out of them (lucky me). So instead of celebrating my birthday with big fat cakes, I am going to have a cheese sandwich as I can't face goodies at the moment. Does/has anyone else have/had this side effect with radiotherapy? But I have decided that they won't beat me if I can help it at all. So if it's good enough for the queen then it's good enough for me and I have decided to have 2 birthdays this year. The one today and an official one in a few weeks time when I can, hopefully, make up for today. You are all invited of course and I want you to wear your best dresses, best perfumes, full make-up and highest heels possible. And the ladies can dress up as well if you want. This thing does get us down and sometimes the treatment is worse than the disease and that is why I am so grateful to you all for making me feel part of a community who knows exactly what I'm going through, and cares. Thank you all so very much. My very best wishes to you all.
