I am an "older" woman with breast cancer (I was diagnosed at 65 and am now 66).  I notice that most of the posts seem to be from people younger than I am (often by quite a bit...).   I'd love to "talk" with others my age, exchange info about their diagnoses, effects on their lives, etc.   I see that there is a forum for young women.

Someone suggested that maybe it's that older people aren't so computer-savvy or aren't used to being in online discussion groups.   However, for those who are, it would be great.

Wow...sounds like too much work for me actually. There are only two of us here and so I can easily slice what few veggies we need. If I have a recipe ( and I do have a couple or three of them ) I get out my Chop Wizard and make quick work of them. It also does apples easily which I often use in some recipes. I use my old, old Hamilton Beach food processor for chopping up big pieces of Jennie-O turkey ham to make ham salad and the Chop Wizard does a great job on the onions and sweet pickles for that. I also take a egg slicer and slice both ways for the diced eggs I put in. I actually have two Chop Wizards since I make a lot of salads and I don't have to wash as much in between chopping. The Wizard is pretty easy to clean and since I keep two of them --- sometimes if it is going to be a couple of days before I turn on the dishwasher -- no problem since I have the second Wizard to use. We don't have guests here much though I do on occasion make up food to take elsewhere.

Not sure what I did ( maybe without ) until I caught onto using the Chop Wizards for most of what I chop up ( lots of potatoes at times ) and it saves a lot of time for me as standing for a long period of time in one spot sometimes is irritating nowadays. I use to keep Mandolin slicers ( tricky now and then ) but gave them up for the Wizards.

It has been raining here tonight -- but it doesn't sound like it will get cold enough to freeze overnight and is supposed to warm up again tomorrow ( got up to 39 today ) some so we should be okay. Finally got the last indoor/outdoor cat inside so we are good for the night.

A little gray her this a.m., but some of the warmth the snuck in the past couple of days and brought rain has kept up without much sun --- and that gets to me, but I am happy that it is warmer. Just a reminder that we seldom have it all. It's so early for me to thinking about Spring but I am. Squirrels are out playing on the ground but also looking for their buried treasures. The cat inside is watching and likely salivating just a bit -- thinking of what he would do if he were outside right now.

I actually have a dog that chases squirrels and catches them now and then. Always thought it funny as she is a bit overwt., but that doesn't hamper her much when it comes to squirrels. I hate seeing it, or the results of it later, but no way much to get her not too.

I hope you are all going to have a fine day.

A rather big concept here, but dovetails pretty much with my thinking --- so I'm sharing.

You are not your mind. You, a Spiritual Being,
are neither your mind nor your body.
Mind and body are your tools - to use as you choose.
Sometimes your body appears to have a will of its own,
as when it twitches or pains.
Likewise, your mind often appears to have its own will.
That incessant chattering of regret, disappointment, guilt,
shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
Know that your mind can be a vicious rattlesnake, and be cautious.
The mind can be tamed, but only with conscious effort and patience.

It is raining today while the temperature gauge moves up to at least 60 degrees. Sigh !!!! Though it doesn't always come -- that is something we might expect ( temp wise ) in late February. Tomorrow, it could snow as it will return to 'cold'. I don't know ( save for the global warming ) what gives here. Guess just more of the strange stuff that seems to have found its way into life and what we can expect.

Otherwise life goes on. I'm grateful to be here and to meet often with friends here and to share together. Hope you are all having an okay day. Sun would be nice. I actually think we might see some tomorrow. That will put a nice face on things for me.

Hi everybody,

Well my wbc was 1.7 and my ANC was low so I didn’t get chemo on 1/8. I did get a shot of neaulasta. I felt ok that night and then felt weak and tired then I think I got a cold or something and I just keep feeling worse and worse. I’m takin Tylenol for a slight rise in my temperature and I’m hoping if I did get a bug the Tylenol and my recovering wbc can get rid of it. If any of you had neaulasta by injection did you feel weak, tingly hands, headachy and just awful? Kat

I'm a long time past my txs, and I also had Neupogin ( older drug then Neaulasta ) but I never had any issues with the Neupogin like you describe. Hope others might chime in. I did have to take fast acting Tylenol a few minutes before I gave myself the injection -- otherwise I would often have headaches through the 7 days I was giving myself the shots. Chemo nurse had forgotten to tell me about the headaches.

Also, though it was long ago -- I think some of the other gals who were using Neaulasta were taking Claritin the day before and day of their Neaulasta which helped with how they felt after getting the shot. You might check with others about this as my chemo was in 2008 so it has been quite some time, and I don't know that I'm recalling it properly.

thanks Illinois Lady,

How I feel has got to be more than just the chemo and neaulasta. I think I’ve got a cold which is hard to fight off. I am so tired I have been falling asleep every time I close my eyes. The Tylenol does seem to be helping to keep my temperature in the normal range. I am so sick of drinking. I ate a popsicle earlier for a little change. I’ll check in tomorrow and give an update.

Remember that fever is a symptom--your body temperature goes up because your immune system is fighting an infection--or in the case of a drug that affects bone marrow, trying to defend itself against a substance such as chemo drugs (which attack fast-dividing cells, not just tumors but hair follicles and bone marrow) and red-and-white-cell boosters like Neulasta & erythropoetin (which "prod" the bone marrow into making new cells to replace the ones killed off). Unless the fever itself is making you feel sick, there is no need to reduce it.

Today ( despite frigid temps ) was a really nice day. Took a friend to do some shopping and we stopped at the Chinese restaurant. I always get sweet and sour pork. I'm still sort of bad ( but for me its good ) about finding something I like and just not branching out. I know there are other dishes I would like, but my love for pork just keeps me going back for what I know will be so satisfying to me.

Dh had the day off so he went as well. It is always fun, though I've always told my friend to call me anytime and I don't require a lunch treat to do this for her. She doesn't drive ( I think she never has ) and right now I'm more free than ever since I'm between jobs. I am thinking of some work, just have to think about it for a bit more. It would likely be ( if they chose to use me ) at the new Best Western Plus that opened here around Christmas time. They have a variety of unfilled jobs. I was surprised to hear it -- so we will see how it goes. They want a breakfast person, maid, clerk, and maybe someone else -- wasn't able to see the scrolling any longer. Anyway, not looking for anything full time at my age, so this may be doable for me.

The cold will continue for this week, but hoping the frigid temps. ease up soon. It didn't snow today and I think a lot of the roadways got enough sun to melt the icy patches. Could re-freeze overnight, but maybe ( hoping ) most of it ran off after melting and will be gone. My car does pretty good so all is fine. Need a warmer day so I can go to the car wash and have the salt spray washed off. I don't have a very pretty car right now.

Jackie, is that the Chinese buffet near the cluster of motels off I-57? I love their fried noodles--just like the ones I used to get at Cantonese restaurants during my Brooklyn childhood.

Felt much better today than yesterday, when I seemed to be having some sinus issues. Went to pick up Rx'es for all three of us. I had run out of bupropion (generic Wellbutrin) and drove myself nuts going through the cabinets looking for the refill I thought I'd bought back in Nov. Went online to CVS, and learned it was "last filled 11/28/17, 90 day supply," so it was ineligible for a refill till the end of Feb. WTF?? I called them, and found out they were "holding" it. Suddenly I remembered: I had brought in the 'scrip with a bunch of others just before Thanksgiving, but my insurance wouldn't cover it till the 28th. I'd asked the tech if they could hold it, then fill it on the 28th and give me the usual "your prescription is available for pickup" robo-call. They never did. Last night Bob had called in a 'scrip for Tamiflu--the infectious disease guys at his hospital recommended it. If you take it as soon as flu symptoms hit, you might be able to knock it out within a day or two. But one of the i.d. docs said that the symptoms (headache, fever, muscle aches) come on so suddenly and severely that you're in no shape to have a Tamiflu 'scrip called in & go to the pharmacy to pick it up in time for it to work well. Bob is going to keep one pill in his glove box, and one in his coat pocket; he says to give Gordy two--one each for him & Leslie, one in my purse and the other five in our medicine cabinet. It's supposed to be taken B.I.D. for 5 days--but if we take that first pill soon enough it'll buy us enough time to get full 'scrips filled for each of us. Not bad for $2.50 per pack of 10.

I also went to my little combination Kosher deli/pharmacy to pick up my letrozole--it was expiring, so a couple days ago I went to my patient portal, clicked on "request Rx refill," clicked on "letrozole, last filled 12/12/17, expires 12/11/18," and clicked the name of the pharmacy. The next screen said "Your prescription will be refilled on 1/12/18." So I went to pick it up, and the pharmacist told me I had better call my MO--the refill was "denied." I said I couldn't understand why, since she wants me taking it at least through 2020. He replied that it was probably because she wanted me to do an office visit first, so she could get paid. I replied that she's on salary at the cancer center, an I have an appt. for 1/22 anyway (supposed to be 1/11, but her NP told me she had to reschedule for travel plans); and I couldn't imagine she'd want me to take a drug holiday. The pharmacist winked and said he didn't think so either. "Ten bucks. This didn't happen," he said, handing me the stock bottle with my prescription label on it. "Don't tell her I refilled it," he warned. I told him I would tell her my excuse for not calling her personally would be that I was able to dip into my stash of branded Femara (which was true). One more reason I'm not switching that Rx to CVS or Walgreen's. (Bet CVS would probably charge more). I will, however, message her on my portal and ask why the refill had been denied, since last year at this time it went through without a hitch. Bet her office never checked the portal and therefore failed to call it in this time.

Yes, Hardee's and Carl's Jr., is the same place. But they ( in the yrs. BOTH restaurants were here ) had fairly different menu's. The Carl's is gone now and Hardee's has d/c'ed their fried chicken which was one of the big draws for me. The two pretty much have the same food now. We don't eat out that often, though run into the fast food places if we are out and get hungry .

We got a brand new McDonalds on our east side. Thought about moving it I think, but the spot was good for a number of reasons so in the end they stayed there. I don't mind the new restaurant, though I have several big dislikes. The ordering kiosks are right at the front door as you pile in which to me is rotten on a busy day. Also, I have no wish to go through computer pages to order. I 'compute' enough at home. As well, they put in two drive-thru lanes which in my view really 'messed' with the parking areas and the parking lanes are now too close together. If there is a drive-thru back-up -- you will possibly be stuck in the lot or the line until it clears. Still, it is close to us --- and so far, seems to not be super crowded. That helps quite a bit.

Frigid again overnight and this a.m. Don't know if we will get sun, but looks like most of the week we will have some. By Saturday -- it should be 51. I'll be glad to see it, but as usual it seems for this yr. we are swinging back and forth a good deal. Hurry Spring !!!

Sunny, cold day here. I'm cooking chicken and sausage gumbo for dinner so the house has some lovely smells coming from the kitchen. I've also been catching up on bc.org threads. The football game between JAX and PIT is on but I haven't been paying a lot of attention. I'll watch the next game with the Saints and the Vikings. I'm much afraid the game won't be a lot of pleasure for Saints fans.

In regard to the discussion of fast food places, I have become a McDonald's fan the last few years. Their coffee is good and so are the sausage biscuits. If calories weren't a concern, I would have a couple of those biscuits every day! I find the chicken sandwiches make a good lunch in a pinch.

Wren, I didn't know you have an Asian background. Are you Chinese American?

Hope everyone is enjoying the day.
