Good evening to everyone !!!!! So many posts to catch up on......no one my age should be working ten hour shifts cause I miss too much EVERYWHERE :) Today I cracked up at all the jelly bellies.......one of the only best things that came after my surgery in Dec and my treatment that followed was people actually telling me how incredibly thin I looked....NO ONE ever tells me that......now I fight each creeping back pound.
Silly question for all of you......have any of you given up any of the things you used or like because you feared they contain estrogen ? For example.....I have heard of people who stopped using certain face creams.....dont eat yogurt anymore.....will only buy organic dairy products.....and on and on.....I was hoping, that moderation would be good and that my anti wrinkle cream *bigsmile* and my favorite yogurt wouldnt cause my bc to come to life......whatcha think ?
Snowbird.....we are almost neighbors.....Im originally from Chicago and now live in one of the western suburbs.....and spent many many summer vacations up near Rhinelander if that is anywhere near your summer home.
Nancy what are you doing for health insurance ? Yes.........I am obsessed with health insurance, never thought I would be counting the days to 65.....1520 of them....this *little* cancer is running near 1/4 million dollars....what would we do without insurance ? and where would we get it.......Paula, if I could, I would retire in a heartbeat.....priorities....certainly do change :)
JO I was looking forward to the diagnostic mammos with the instant results no matter how high the stress is.....but you always make me stop and think....it took them 3 weeks to call me back in for films after my routine mammo....5 more days to decide on an ultrasound....3 days to stereotactic biopsy.....and then I ORCHESTRATED everything else myself to happen within 5 days. Im so sorry to hear bout your breast injury....will we never have to stop worrying about them.....
Hi Debbie (sydpen) great to hear that you are hanging tough and going to grow old and have belly fat along with the rest of us.....sorry that you were staged so high but all things are possible now....even seeing 90 ! We will all put you right into our prayers.....Im curious about the rest of your story too.
Rebecca I seriously dont think an age of 71 would have ANYTHING at all to do with treatment....its all about the tumor.....the pathology etc.....71 is nowhere near the end of the road
It was almost....almost springlike here today.....rain tomorrow, lots of it. Thanks to all of you for always being *here* when* I get home at night....
Be healthy, be happy
I am TRYING to figure out how to post a picture.....pathetic , this aging thing !
A life lived in fear....is a life half lived.
