Taking a break

Hi everyone

I haven't been on for ages and I just thought I should let you know how that it wasn't for any sinister reason. I know I'm extremely fortunate to be in remission and I just felt I needed a complete break from OC. In fact I still feel that way but I was conscious that a few of you might have been wondering what was going on.

I did have a wobble (for that, read major panic attack) when I started getting twinges in my abdomen but bloods and everything else seem to be normal so it may be adhesions.

I think I will keep my distance from Ovacome for a while yet cos that's what I feel I need to do. But I'm still wishing all of you well and think often of those of you I feel I've got to know... Wendy, Gwyn, Annie, Margaret, Suzanne, to name just a few. You're a great community and I'm sure the time will come when I'm ready to be a more active participant again.

In the meantime, health, hugs and lots of love to you all.

Hi Linda,

Have a good OC holiday....I have missed you but understand as well...we will be here when you are ready...sending you lots of love and best wishes x G x :-)


I forgot to say please keep up your librarian skills...and come back with a whole new read for us...we will always need a librarian xx G :-)


Hi Linda!

Enjoy your break! We all have our own ways of coping in remission! I shall miss you but I understand! As Gwyn says keep up the librarian skills! I shave not forgotten my promise to collate an anthology for Lizzie! The last couple of months I have had to put it on the back burner because of the sciatica. Not directly cancer related but a distraction!

Remember you are in all our thoughts!

Love M


Be happy and be healthy!!



Hello there Linda ....

Good to know that you are doing well ...Stay positive and go forward .

Pop in and see us from time to time xxxx

Love Jan xxxx


Hiya Linda.

So glad you came on to tell us your ok.. we do worry dont we when we dont hear from someone.. I know exactly how you feel. we are lucky to be in remission. But it is never the end of it all... The worry and the stress and the after effects are with us for a long time i fear..

Please take all the time you need as Gwyn says we will all still be here when you decide to come back. Take care of your self

Lots of love




Hi Linda

Like you, I am in remission after 2nd line chemo and don't post much on here, but I do dip in and out once or twice a week to keep abreast of where everyone is up to and all the latest news on treatments etc. It's good to be part of a group with the freedom to be as interactive, or not, as your needs demand. I am always here though with all you lovely ladies. I too have also been experiencing abdominal pain and have been referred to a Colorectal surgeon for investigation into bowel problems, which are probably due to adhesions. Hopefully I will get this sorted soon.

Love to all

Hiya Linda! So glad you are feeling well. Enjoy your break, live life to the full and maybe drop in once in a while to let us know how you're getting on. I'm taking a real break at the moment, in sunny ( very...) Skiathos. Gorgeous:-) take care,

Love Wendy xx


Hi Linda

I know exactly how you feel, I have been in remission since June and love to look at this sight everyday. I have gained a lot of knowledge and occasionally post, but for the main I choose to sit back. I feel so lucky to be in remission and am enjoying my life with my husband, daughters and grandson. Like you I have had pains in my abdomen and do worry about it, infact every little thing worries me!

I just want to wish you all the best, sometimes it's just so nice to try and put the oc on the back burner.

Thinking of you

Love Linda xx


Hi Linda . Hope all continues to be well with you . I can understand your reasons for staying away and then main thing is you do what is right for you,

May you continue with a lengthy remission and wishing you good health

Take care
