Hello to my online family,
It's the crazy gal from England ;-) Firstly just to let everyone know I am being weaned off the prozac and should hopefully start a new anti depressant in two weeks which will have a sedative effect and help me sleep! I will have a community nurse check up on me every week, and have intensive counselling sessions.

Need your prayers, good wishes and thoughts, anything you can throw my way for my chemo on Monday it will be 4/8. I just want to get through it now, so hoping all blood work etc will be fine. So your supportive as always greatly appreciated, big hugs to you all and thanks for putting up with me.

    New Meds
    Dear Sonia,

    Hopefully your new meds will give you the help you need. I know the prozac worked great for me. It really took the edge off. I will be praying for you.

    Blessings to You,

    Debbie (gramma)

    Prayer coming your way...
    Hi Sonia,
    I've sent a prayer your way via a private note. Monday is Labour Day in Canada. I'll be thinking of you as you undertake this labour of healing work.

    Don't forget to look ahead!!!!
    There IS life after cancer!!!! Try to plan something for after the treatment...I did, and it made all of the difference!!! Sure, I still didn't buy anything big for over a year ( first purchase was a new sofa set for the living room...), but investing in the future, even small things, did the trick for me.

    Hugs, Kathi

    You can do this

    Coming Your Way :)
    Great news, Sonia

    I think Sleep and Rest are the #1 ingredients in taking care of yourself. When your mind and body have some rest, you think clearer and can handle the ups and downs on a more even keel...hope the switch in meds works well for you too.

    I'm sending everything positive your way...still waiting for the chill in the air down here in Texas to cool off, so we can all emerge from our caves and breath in some fresh air!

    Hope everything is merry in England :)

    Hang in there and stay with sound good and ready to move forward...I'm so glad.

    Thinking of You
    I'm hoping that the new medication will make you feel so much better. There are so many different ones, you just have to find the right one that will work for you. Good luck in your counseling as well. This can be a big help in getting through all this. Hope your next treatment goes well with little or no side effects.
