Thanks

I haven't posted for a while, as I have had another spell in hospital with a bowel blockage. Unfortunately the incision became infected, and has taken a couple of months to heal.

I just wanted to say, as 2018 kicks in, thank you all for being here. I honestly feel that I couldn't have got through this OC experience without you, and you are my first contact when I need help or advice.

I could go on, but am feeling a bit emotional. None of us know what the year ahead will bring, but we do know that with this forum, we won't be on our own. Thankyou.

Jenny

Sorry. I know I sound a bit morose, but waking up this morning on my own (I am seeing family later) and having been through two surgeries in two years, plus chemo, I am really feeling the lack of someone to give me a hug, or make me a cup of tea.

I am wallowing now, so am pulling myself together, putting on a sparkly top and a happy face ready for lunch with my children and grandchildren.

It is the "little" things such as having a cup of tea made for you which can make a big difference. My husband works away from home and is away four nights in the week, sometimes five, and when he is not there it is the morning tea I really miss. I have learned since diagnosis to "hold and accept" the more difficult to bear feelings like a rucksack, while going on with my day. I know it's there but I try to take it with me rather than trying to throw it away or hide it somewhere. It may not help anyone else but it works for me.

Take care, Xx Netti xx

It must sometimes seem that way when you live alone. Rejoice that you have close family to spend time with today. Sometimes I think putting on a happy face is A prelude to being happy. I hope they approve of your sparkly top.

I know Tracey. I am probably just a bit run down from the op, plus I have quite a large hernia now, and a painful area quite unrelated to the incision so area. I am back at the hospital on the twelfth, so see what is said then. Plus, due to this bowel thing I missed my three monthly OC check,so lots to get me worrying!😞
