Just read the previous 2 posts - my eyesight isn't great as still blurs! It's Lola' s cupcakes. I decided to go xmas shopping all over central London and am so utterly exhausted! Central London is a real task! I think I must've walked 3 miles today! But will pay for this when fatigue hits - I can feel it coming. At least most of it is done on the present front. It's going to get colder again - dint plan on leaving the house now. Needs a clean as well! Hope you're all well and have had a good day.

Another day completed, how are we all, especially Tigercub? 

Daughter took me out for tea, lovely food just rather a lot of it. Don’t seem to be able to eat as much as I used to which to he honest probably isn’t a bad thing as I could really trough when I got going!

Morning ladies. Stay warm as it's getting colder! Yep rileyroo definitely true - I cannot eat as much as before either. Still can't eat meat or fish. Still loving cake so not bad at all! A little wiped out - fatigue hit about 5pm yesterday so up to bed by 8pm. Still feeling it so taking it easy. Got my online courses to complete for volunteering. Gotta get my butt to the gym. One day soon. Definitely xmas isn't about the presents. I only bought for my hubby and kids. We have a rule on in-laws side that we only buy for under 18's and normally just give choices or biscuits. I cannot sometimes believe all that's happened this year - what a journey. Let's hope mammo on mon is all good. That's where it all started last year. Have a good day ladies coz we rock!!

I know jbains - it’s unreal - only 4 mths for me but feel the same. 

We only buy close family too nd for grown up of which I buy for 2 daughters nd partners we have a £25 limit. Considering at work before I left they wanted £20 on bran tub - I refused nd dropped out told them I spend not much more  on family . Fair bit more on grandkids tho lol 

Am I right in thinking u had more than 15 RT sessions jbains. It’s seems to have really knocked u for 6 bless. Mind u it also could depend on the strength of yr sessions too . 

Was just talking t someone I know in the school yard nd she had lung cancer 20 yrs ago she said she had t stop the chemo after 3 session cos was too much for her. She was saying the treatment had “knackered” her bones nd joints :-0  but hey 20 yrs nd she is still here nd clear. To me.... that’s totes worth it:-)

sending virtual hugs nd as much energy as words can send. 

Take care me dears x

Hey I had 20 - 15 proper ones and 5 as a "top up". They increased strength and duration of each treatment about after 10 sessions. Yep sure has been life changing but am here walking and talking. Am a bit scared and apprehensive about mon but am going to think only positively. It is such a horrible day out today - cold wind and rain. I hate rain. Are work people being empathetic since your return rileyroo? Wow Sandra you're doing a full time job there! Am tired just reading it. So so glad you are doing so well. Tigercub - one more chemo done. Hurray! I know it's rough but you're one step further. I know there's a long road ahead but you are going in forward direction. Take it easy. I'm watching Real Housewives of N.Y. city. Wow. That's all I'll say (and that is said sarcastically). Funny how people worry and stress about the silliest and smallest things. Wow....

They’re being blokes generally. I’m upright and talking, therefore OK! Luckily the grils in the office are being really good !
