I am ashamed of snapping at people but get very frustrated with feet and hands that do not feel and feet that stumble because the balls and the toes are dead! A brain that functions at half speed and a body I hate! A colostomy that misbehaves on occasions! when "normal" people have diarrhoea it does not overload their colostomy cap and dribble all over the floor without them being aware there is a problem! finding the drips and dealing with them is an added problem!
Sorry! I cope very well normally but tonight someone called me a liar and I lost my rag! I am ashamed of over reacting but last Saturday I missed the opera because of a cold, had a sneezing fit on the stairs when going to bed, lost my footing because of the neuropathy, and fell down stairs! No broken bones thank goodness but lots of bruises and feeling very fed up!
Had bone density scan on Wednesday, start Radio therapy on the breast on Monday week and went to a return to movement clinic at the breast cancer centre today! Felt like screaming at them "try ovarian, with a colostomy" I know breast cancer is awful, and disfiguring, but, these days, it is curable! for me the lumpectomy is a mere flea bite!
Sorry just needed a moan I feel much better!
