    @Kiwi Angel I have never understood why everyone else thinks that if they are too busy then someone else can pick up their slack. I often find they have run out of time because they socialised at the same time as working. Look after yourself lovely.

    @Kiwi Angel Sounds like it was a well justified explosion. Life is too short. K xox

    Oh dear, that's a shocker, @Kiwi Angel - well done on chucking the wobbly.    Some people (once they realise you will clean  up after them), just keep on leaving the mess, knowingly!    grrrr

    I hope the message got across good & smart!  ;)  Take care, hugs coming xxx

    Thanks everyone - she is doing what she can to reduce my stress but she’s abit oblivious sometimes. I refuse to do other people’s jobs for them though - doing my own these days is challenge enough!! I agree that them not having everything done is due to socialisation or disorganisation. 

    Just realised this morning too that it is the anniversary of my first chemo - don’t know where that went!!

    Go, girls! Sometimes only we can be our own advocates and I think it has become more important for us to call it.

    A totally left field anger management suggestion I read about once was belting a tennis racquet hard into your bed mattress for a while.Guess at least it gets it out safely .I used to belt a tennis ball hard into our side wall when I was a kid - my father used to sleep the other side of the wall.

    The anger for me was terrible - I'm not usually an angry person and so the guilt that came with it was compounding everything!!  I really tried to find the reason why as (after deep deliberation) I chose not to go down the medical path after 2 operations and Drs advice for chemo, radio and Tamoxifin.  Even so my impatience was rampant!!  I realised for me it was stemming from stress - my stressed out body and my stressed out brain.  For me, realising this was liberating as it gave me a starting point to change some things.  It also gave me an answer to give to the shocked looks from family.  I now take myself off to 3 yoga classes a week-2 of them are on dinner time, so others in the family have to step up (so it;s usually take away night).  I also found cutting out sugar made a huge difference to my emotions. :)
