Happy New Year everyone! Here is to a healthy and kind 2015.
Caro - my friend is on a drug similar to this (not sure if it is the same drug). She's having to pay for it privately though as NHS won't fund it (??5K a year). Her consultant recommended it to her as her cancer is exactly the type it significantly reduces the occurrence of. She's getting monthly injections at moment to suppress ovaries and is seriously considering having ovaries removed entirely (her line is 'if I have them removed its one less type of cancer I could get')
Off to an outdoor interval session with EF tonight - our NY resolution is to go at least once a month. I don't think it is going to be pretty
Not read back fully but wanted to come on to say thinking of you both Camio and TB. ((( )))
TB - have no wise words other than hang in there if its what you want. Does sound like a mid-life crisis though but if you can both work through all these issues together then hopefully you will come out the other side stronger.
CM - standard University happening for the network to fall over on the first day of week 1 of the new term! Our IT folk managed to have a situation in freshers week where new students could send email but they couldn't receive any emails from University staff. Took them 3 days to resolve, hmmm! Sounds like you might manage a fix in far less time though
Caro - both my BC friends had a strange metallic taste in their mouth during chemo treatment. They said it did spoil the taste of things and both went off tea despite being a right pair of tea jennies normally. Cranberry juice was something that worked for one. Also flavoured cordials (elderflower etc) topped up with sparkling water as somehow that made it all bit more palatable! Worth a try? Glad you're feeling bit more human today - enjoy the art therapy, make sure the tears don't smudge any of your lovely painting tho
Re hubby's recall. My uncle had that test and they diagnosed impaired glucose tolerance. He had to stop eating sweet things! Can be an early warning sign for diabetes I think? My uncle went on to develop diabetes (not till he was in his 70s I may add) but its manageable through diet.
PipG - hope its a better day for bottoms in your household!
TTid - happy moving, hope it goes well. The house looks amazing and no doubt you will be glad to get in and get settled.
Not read back but waves for everyone, and big big hugs for those who need them!
