    Guess which thread I come and read when I'm cranky or upset. Coming here and reading this puts all my little problems into perspective.

    I have a great high with steroids that are taken for 5 days. One woman on my lymphoma forum painted the outside of her house on chemo steroid high days lol.
    Then with me comes the second week slump where I sleep a lot.

    It is all good, it is all so easy compared to what some go through.
    I hope this was not TMI.
    It is never TMI Di, as Grey has said, we think of you every day and it is good to try and share this journey with you. At times you will make us laugh, at times you will make us cry, but you are also keeping us grounded and make the silly little worries we have disappear! Stay strong Di!

    Oh Pei my heart is breaking for you and Russell. Have you tried apricot kernels? That's what got rid of my DD's brain lesion when she was 6.

    Di, you're doing great, if you feel like painting anything from your high, let me know and I'll give you my address

    Pei, I'm so so so sorry to hear about Russell, I wish there was more that I could do beside send tonnes of 's, well wishes and comforting thoughts to you.

    Hey Di, Hope everything is going well, but don't want to hear you doing things like the following news article!

    Oh dear BO, I did however tell my FIL if I was end stage if he liked I could do a hit on his recently ex wife who is trying to really take him to the cleaners Was a joke, he pretended to consider it, lol.

    Fifth chemo down guys. woohoo, one to go. It is so weird though, I have some stupid apprehension feelings at its ending. weird, like being cast adrift on a raft. Pretty common though I have heard and just something to work through. I am not going to miss the side effects of effectively destroying my body to destroy beastie lol.

    I see the radiation specialist the 16th. One of the women at chemo has seen him for her radiation. She said he is an eccentric nut case and wonderful...sounds like we will click, lol.

    She also had the same radiation that I will be having and she told me her side effects..again, everyone is different and she only confirmed what I have read on govt and medical sites and what people on my lymphoma forum undergoing similarly placed radiotherapy have reported. She said it was great, every side effect they have a med for lol. She said with her, water felt like it had razor blades in it but cold milk went down better...I LOVE cold milk and drink a lot of it.

    Pei, am thinking of you and Russell and sending much love.

    LOL Boh, if Di was to do something like that she'd be MUCH better prepared!

    Di, great to hear all is progressing, the chemo certainly doesn't seem to have knocked your attitude...or your sense of humour!

    If you can't drink water, there's always vodka.......... :-)

    My old GP was always in favour of using alcohol as disinfectant. We like G&Ts for head colds along with the warm brandy alexander recipe mentioned elsewhere and full bodied red wine.

    Repeat after me...Di is a dork.

    1 2 3...Di is a dork...thank you.

    I just read a specialist's report to another specialist dated 28 jan 10. He asked me why I would want it, I said I am nosy, hand it over...he did.

    Some back ground, I could wear the same pair of shoes till they fall apart, handbags are a different story. My family is well trained to grab me by the arms when we walk by a shop THEN watch me doing a one eighty to get back to check it out, you get the picture.

    Tonight I am having a steroid high time, so, instead of alphabetising my spices I have chosen to ummm, correlate about 5 disregareded handbags into one.

    I find the report that I asked for and as cancer does NOT have a high priority, ummm, promptly forgot to read.

    This report is prior start of chemo, prior my gratifying response to chemo.

    I have been fighting to get 5 more years of life.
    When I was diagnosed I sent up a plea...5 years minimum please, it is too soon after my mother. My family would be able to cope in 5 years.

    Report reads.
    I expect this patient to have 30 to 40 pc chance of being disease free in 5 years.
    Not 30 to 40 pc she will be dead, just recurrence (but we all know that could maybe on the cards.]

    Have to ask him what his odds are now.
    I rang my sister, my kids, telling them I will still be around longer than we even hoped. Sorry lol. I give a blanket apology to the forum too, hahaahhahah.

    Repeat after me.
    DI IS A DORK.
