    OK Cheeto fiends. I was checking out at the store and saw a 2fer a dollar barrel. One of the offerings was trial size bags of Cheeto Snowflakes. Looked like crackers in 4 different shapes. Oh they are delicious, puffy, shapped, white cheddar delights. One little bag wasn't enough.

    That's the one. Very tasty. But probably very bad for you. I got them at a Wal-Mart. I'm going to try to find a bigger bag.

    Lurk in the shadows most of the time on these boards, but wanted to wish all of you a Happy New Year, filled with stress free days. Had mammogram yesterday and have now been moved to a once a year visit to my radiologist. Guess five years is the golden standard for less monitoring. I go to my oncologist in January and wonder if I'll receive similar news from him. I know it's a good thing, but it's weirdly unsettling to be put on a "longer leash." It certainly doesn't seem like five years have passed. Hopefully the next five will be uneventful, healthwise,for us all. Happy 2018.

    Hi Ladies! I'm in this age group. So I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Becky and I am 55. I was one month shy of my 54th birthday when I was diagnosed. Today is the one year anniversary of my first diagnosis. Of my right breast. Which is +/+/-. March 21 is the one year anniversary of the diagnosis of my left breast. Which is +/+/+. But today I am celebrating the fact that I am here, I am cancer-free and I am waiting on the birth of my first grandchild in April!!

    Oceanbum - congratulations on your two 'one year' celebration markers. And on the impending birth of your grandchild. So are you done with Herceptin? Looks like you'll be on Tamox for awhile since you're hormone positive.

    This thread isn't very active any more, but I expect one or two ladies still have it pinned on their 'favorites'. Take a look at the 'active threads', or in 'all threads' to see if there's something under - moving ahead/making new friends/ etc. where people post regularly. The BCO discussion groups & people experiencing things at the same time I did have been my best support.

    I pinned it as a favorite because I am in the age group, but you are right....it seems to be a quiet bunch.

    hi guys!

    I'm mid-forties with a 5 year old and a 7 year old. I only lurk quietly here in this thread now, but would love to liven things up here!

    ok, just had a birthday, so I guess I should move here from the “Ladies in their 30’s” thread. Funny how cancer gives you a different perspective on birthdays. Especially a big one like turning 40. I have a toddler who’s going to be 2 soon, so I think my cancer journey will be based on Her birthdays, because I want to be around until she’s grown. My older kids are mostly grown now (I started young)! I’m STILL recovering from rads- I ended up with pneumonitis and just finally finishing steroids this month- hooray! Tamoxifen And Lupron are tolerable, just massive hot/cold flashes mostly. I hope you ladies are doing well!

    Cpeachymom--birthdays do have a different feel after bc, don't they. I cannot imagine hwo anyone can think of rads as "easy" treatment--I still feel the effects in my muscles and with the asthma issues it made so much worse. I also remember the Lupron/arimidex hot flashes. Was so glad when that part of treatment was over and that stopped. I was very much less pleased with going into natural menopause a year later and starting over with them! Fortunately, the natural menopause hot flashes were no where near as intense as the chemically induced ones. Also, I don't see why you can't stay with the ladies you've met and know in the 30's thread AND join us here in the middle's thread. We're not jealous here!

    Good idea Native. I've moved on to the 'older' threads, but as you can see - I still have this on my favorites. Age is relative.

    Age is relative, indeed. Relationships are important, no matter where they started. And Favorites remain favorites!
