Glad to hear you're getting out and about Tigercub.

Makes more sense to take you under only once. Waiting is very hard but just focus on recovery from chemo and being strong for surgery.

Don't even get me started on employers....

Take it easy and enjoy your lunch and day.

Don’t like limbo, none of us do I suppose. Losing things is a way of life it seems whilst dealing with this guano. I struggle to remember what I had for lunch by the time it gets to 7 In the evening. Hope you enjoy your lunch with your daughter.

Costs them more where I am if the oldies go! My ex said why not look at redundancy as a way out, we’ve got a restructure coming as well but the amount I would get is peanuts.

It's so unfair to have all this worry about work along with everything else. As if it isn't enough suffering. Unfortunately life is what it is. If you don't need to go back then perhaps look at part time or so something totally different. That's a bridge to cross a bit further in the future. Concentrate on getting rid of this ******* cancer. Hey someone could tell me a postcode or smthg as simple as that and in a minute I'll forget it. Had an amazing memory before so am now like Dory!! Take it easy.x

Things are what they are. Soldier on! I still have no job and plenty of years until retirement. All in good time.... Whatever is meant to be the best for us will happen. Worrying or stressing helps nothing. We're here so enjoy every single day. Smile even if we feel ****. It's hard but we got this!

Evening ladies. Hope you've had a good day. It was cold here so kept out of rain during daytime. Been a bit tired today. This has really gotta stop. Rileyroo did you have your meeting this week?

Meeting went OK. I had written up what had been discussed the previous week and updated health status after Monday so I passed out copies of that. My manager had been  cocky up to that point, he was pretty shaken up after he read it. The boss sat there and agreed it was what we had discussed! The boss apologised for what had happened when I went back on phased return, said that should not have happened. Manager tried to wriggle out of the fact he hadn’t completed one of the big bits of work I have to do each month, said ‘I didn't have time’. I comented that there were three others on the team as well and how had he expect me to do two full months worth of work when I was working fewer hours? 

 

Got another meeting later this month to review how it’s going. Manager has been seriously creepy since, don’t

know how much of that I can handle to be honest. 

 

Any way, daughter and I went out for tea last evening, mini celebration and pay day! Can’t wait for Friday, need to sleep, can’t handle pressure the way I used to, think it’s the tiredness that is the issue in this for both of us?

Sounds like you've got this under control. Forget about the sheepishness and the guilt reaction. This manager owes a duty of care to you now so make sure he sticks to that. I know it's hard but try not to stress about it. It's only work - the most important thing is your health and your family. Any excuse to go out is great! You deserve it. Yes this tiredness really isn't helping matters! The change to our lives is hard to get used to but we're doing so well coz we rock! My sleeping pattern has gone weird so that's not helping either. Still got daughter at home feeling poorly. If only I could take her pain away - living with pain is normal for me. So much harder seeing her suffer. Going to take her back to GP today. Sigh....onwards.

How did you get on with your gp today?

Re: Onwards...

Hey rileyroo. How was your day and the tiredness? GP couldn't figure out why so sent for blood tests. We went to walk in and wait at gp surgery so 9:30-11;15 we were waiting. Then straight to hospital and waited again for 1.5 hrs. I thot might as well get mine done - well my veins didn't want to give blood - both arms failed and in the end in my hand going in and out which killed so am bruised and tattered. Daughter is a wuss like me (hers is free flowing) but still had to buy her chocolate! Back to the nurse with her on the 19th. Am so tired with just the waiting and feel dirty as went into germy environment! Yuck. Time to eat dinner, bath and bed. Enjoy your evening.x
