thank you

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who responded to my blog and question. Its great to feel part of a community. I made a great friend 8 years ago when I was having my first round of chemo. She was having her second lot as she had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer a year before me. We had fun and tears together and met up as a foursome with both our partners too.

She died last April and I have really missed her and although I have friends who have had other cancers its different and mostly they are in remission.

I've felt well this week as I'm having 2 weeks off chemo due to low white cells last friday and I've done my best to enjoy the time especially in the sunny days (in our new convertible!)

I also felt disappointed as I just want this treatment over with so I can get on with my "normal" life again. Makes me realise more and more that I have so little control over life and I don't like it!

love and big hug

Francesca xx

  • Hi Francesca

    I know the feeling well. Pleased to have a break but sad to not get it over and done with. I should be on my last treatment next Tuesday but because of low bloods it will be the first of my last three all being well.

    Keep enjoying the lovely weather beautiful again today.

    Love and hugs

  • Hi Francesca

    That's what I hated most during treatment, feeling for the first time in my life that I had no control whatsoever...horrible.

    It's surprising how quickly the time goes during treatment though. I finished last May, but am likely to need to start again this May/June. At the moment making the most of the time and enjoying it.

    Take care

  • Hi Francesca,

    It is hard when you lose a friend but paticularly with OC..my friend who also had OC died last year and you do feel you have a common bond with people who have the same type of cancer, I how don't know anyone personally with OC it is a very lonely disease to have.

    Best wishes love x G x
