Hi Ruth,
It sure is quiet. The new registrations are all spammers these days. Accordingly we've decided to stop registrations of new users for now. Hope you are doing well.

Hi Kerri
I'm so sorry to hear about the MS and the lump, I hope the lump is nothing sinister and the MS is not too debilitating. :hugs:

Hello,
Just popping into say hi & check in on how everyone is doing.
I've now got MS amongst other things.
I have to go back to the breast cancer clinic in the Royal Adelaide Hospital as I've got a large lump in my right breast, the one that had the cancer 10yrs ago. If it is my bc returning I will be so upset. Fortunately the medical team & breast care nurse who looked after me before are still there, it'll ease my mind to see familiar faces. I have to be honest though, I'm feeling scared. :sniff:

Strong family history of bc including my Mum who was dxd 2 months before me.
In 2007 I had a risk reducing oophorectomy and in 2010 had mast. & lat. dorsi recon..

Hi Jezza
Good to hear from you, Im sorry to hear about the autoimmune problem I hope its not a bad one.

Make sure you all get a colonoscopy as you age, I would have had bowel cancer twice without them. A fecal occult test is not enough. Best to catch it before blood detection. :hugs:

A friend of mine asked me to join a FB breast cancer forum (Aust.) as she was on it and wanted me to read replies to her posts. I was amazed at how active it was. I think people search FB for support groups these days and go on FB daily and get notifications of new posts and then read and reply. Last March I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and I joined a few FB support groups and found them to be really helpful.

I'm loving retirement and now can't imagine how I managed to work. I go to an exercise class 2 or 3 times a week (Drs orders!), walk my dog daily and catch up with friends whenever I like.

This forum was great in the early days and definitely ahead of it's time.

Hi Chris
Thanks for checking in. Im enjoying retirement too. Seem to be busy though, 3 months volunteering at Fire Control.

Forum is very quiet as are lots of forums these days including caravan and motorhome forums. I think FB and the like takes so much of our time online that other forms of social media tends to be left out. Congratulations on your granddaughter I've been lucky enough to view the photos on FB. :hugs:
