Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Things are crazy now. I think we are all trying to stay healthy and maintain sanity as well. I thought I would start this thread so folks can check in and discuss how they're doing. I want all my BIC friends to be okay. I will kick this off with a first post. Take care of yourself lovelies.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Hope everyone had a good weekend and thanksgiving! Glad to see some people south of the border getting boosters and I wish we could see way more first shots getting in arms around the world.

 

On my end, I learned today that my friend was just diagnosed with cancer. I'm worried our hospitals will get slammed right when she needs treatment. This is the third person close to me who's received a cancer diagnosis since the pandemic hit who needed treatment while our hospitals are basically under siege and dealing with a massive backlog of treatments. Thankfully the first two are ok now and in remission but it doesn't seem to stop 😞 I'm worried the stress is just getting to people. She's in her early 30s, no family history, it's really quite a shock. She loves Sephora and I was just putting together a fun little makeup package for her and now I'm like, ugggggg, is this stuff just full of carcinogens T_T Now it's back to putting together a care package full of "wellness" stuff like tumeric milk mix and healthy/easy items to cook when you feel like total crap from chemo. 😞 Thanks for listening and I hope everyone is hanging in there!!!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I'm sorry to hear about your friends' cancers, @pocketvenus Cancer when someone is young is always such a shock. ☹️ I hope her hospital can treat her quickly.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@pocketvenus I'm so sorry you had to go through that 3x with different friends. Even one cancer diagnosis news is a lot to handle. I hope they have speedy recoveries as they undergo treatment. You are such a kind friend for putting together items for them to enjoy 💛

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Guessgal Thank you for your kindness 🌼 The first two are in remission and I hope for the same ❤️

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I’m so sorry to hear about your friend (and your other friends too). Cancer sucks, but I’m sure she’s got great doctors looking out for her. I’m sure she will appreciate the care package. @pocketvenus 💕💗💕

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@sister13 Yes, thankfully she is going to Princess Margaret, a hospital in Toronto that specializes in cancer and has many top doctors. Very grateful to all healthworkers at this time! 🏥

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@pocketvenus I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. Y'all are in my thoughts. ❤️

@pocketvenus 

I’m really sad to hear this friend 🤍 I don’t think our hospitals are at that point again. I have hope for your friend. I recently just had to have emergency surgery at a hospital in the city you live in and they discovered some not so great stuff that I’m waiting on the biopsy results for. So I totally hear you. 🤍🤍

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I'm so sorry to hear this, @GG84. I hope you get better news when you get the results. 💗

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@GG84 You're absolutely right, our hospitals are okay, I was just projecting my omicron worries but I shouldn't since there's so much we don't know! I hope you're recovering from your surgery swiftly and your test results turn out to be fine <333 Sending you lots of scented good vibes. Thank you for thinking of me, you're in my thoughts as well <333

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@GG84 - I'm sorry to hear about your surgery and biopsy!  I hope your recovery is quick and the biopsy news is positive!  I'll keep you in my thoughts.  🙏💞

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I’m so sorry to hear about your friend @pocketvenus. Sending positive thoughts and prayers❤️

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@pocketvenus - I'm sorry to read about your friend!  Best wishes to her.  You and she are in my thoughts.  🙏💞  I'm scheduled for my booster this Thursday.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Titian06 Thank you <333 There's still a lot of tests to be run so we don't know how serious the situation is yet. I'm really hoping she caught it super early which is common because our province has a pretty decent screening program. The treatment tends to be straightforward with a very high success rate. And thanks for sharing your booster news!!! 💯👏

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@pocketvenus Sorry to hear about your friend. My friend went thru chemo last year during the pandemic and this year the doctors are trying to put her in a clinical trial because whatever they gave her did worse not better. We’re praying together for our friends get through it. 🙏🌹

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@blackkitty2014 oh no!!! Cancer treatment can be so brutal. I hope your friend gets better🕯
