I love adult coloring books.
I find it very therapeutic.
I’ve just started doing 5d diamond kits! I’ve done 2 so far and have a set of 5 elephant key rings to do!!
The bottom one is a custom photo of one of my dogs, planning on doing the other two!! 😃
very relaxing to do if a bit time consuming but I did them whilst recovering from both ops so had plenty of time!!
I hope that you’re all at home safe in isolation.
I have my wonderful hubby and gorgeous Springer Spaniel for company only for the next 12 weeks but am video calling my family every day and keeping busy.
At least the weather is lovely for the first time in months. Daffodils are out in the garden which always lifts my spirit😍
I know everyone is worried about Covid-19, as am I, it’s frightening times but it’s best to turn off the news, all social media posts and keep busy at home instead.
I am here if anyone is feeling lonely and would like to chat.
When the madness is over, we’ll come through it stronger than ever.
If you are currently undergoing chemo, like myself, no doubt you’re worrying about it being cancelled and delayed. I too am worried about this as I’m half way and want it to be over so that I can move forward with radiotherapy - I have been told by my hospital that’s it should continue as planned.
Keep smiling everyone, I hope you’re all keeping busy. Remember, this site is fantastic for support and guidance. I have learned a lot from this and am grateful for the sounding board so that I don’t have to offload on my hubby who is struggling with my diagnosis (breast cancer at 33) our families suffer terribly when someone they love is diagnosed with the c word and sometimes they almost get forgotten about as the focus is on the patient so it’s nice to discuss things on here without causing any further anguish to our loved ones. I speak from experience having cared for my parents who have had cancer and therefore know how it feels to be Carer and patient of cancer treatment (Footnote, my hubby is absolutely amazing and would be lost with his support and love)
Stay safe, keep busy, keep smiling, keep talking, keep laughing, we’ve got this!!
Thanks for getting in touch.
If your husbands lymphoma is now in remission and his blood tests have been stable then immunity wise would not pose more of a risk.
However I agree it’s sensible to err on side of caution and ensure adherence to government guidance but based on the information you have given I would not say he needs to be shielded entirely for 12 weeks
It would be good to check this with the haematologist at the hospital as well.
Goodness 18 is a lot but you’re over half way, that’s incredible, just keep crossing through the calendar every cycle rather then think of the weeks ahead.
I am 33 and had surgery in December 2019 for Breast cancer and commenced chemo in Jan.
Had my 2nd chemo last Thursday and have 4 more before I start radiotherapy for a month.
I have a few things plotted in the diary for when I’m through my treatment, a relaxing weekend in Dartmoor with my amazing hubby and my scrumptious dog (crazy springer!) and then a once in a lifetime trip to Florida with my hubby and step sons.
Yes I could cancel my Orlando trip and think about the money I am not currently earning the week commencing treatments (I’m self employed) but I’m going through all this so that I can live and be here for my loved ones, so what better way then to create magical memories!
If you haven’t got anything booked, even a night away for some normality, then get it booked. This is part of survival and gives us something to look forward to when we have darker days..
I wish you all the very best.. you’ve got this my love x
I am just learning to love myself x
I’m a survivor!!
Physical abuse, the death of my daughter, divorce, a drug dependant and alcoholic son but I’m still strong and always here for others
That even though I’m going through this at 35 I’m not sweeping it under the carpet and I’m being honest with friends and colleagues as it’s not something to be embarrassed or ashamed of.
I love the fact that I always try to stay positive, be kind, have a smile on my face and adopt the policy “ Get Up, Dress Up, Show Up, and Never Give Up!” On a daily basis ❤️
Happy Saturday everyone ❤️ I hope your Treatment journey/recovery is coming on nicely.
I have just had my second chemo for breast cancer. I’m 33 and the love and support I’ve had from my family and friends has been unbelievable.
Community sites like this are amazing because you can speak freely to those who can relate and share their own experiences.
I wish you all well in whatever battle you have or are currently facing. You are not alone.
We are all beautiful (even without my lovely long hair!) and every drug taken, every sickness faced, all the fatigue and goodness knows all the other side effects, is always one more step to survival.
We’ve got this!!!!
