Managed to get in touch with an old friend who can help me with my problem. Had a long conversation on the phone with him this evening and Gray and I are meeting him for a meal tomorrow night.
Tomorrow evening I also pick up my new trial contact lenses. I'm looking forward to it. It will be very interesting. The optician will also give me my 6 monthly contact lens check. I have to have them 6 monthly due to the tamoxifen. It can affect your eyes but luckily I've not had that problem.
It's turned out a nice Summer so far but it's turning out a nightmare for me. My employers are on my back complaining I look stressed and they don't like my health problems and I feel like they are trying to push me out. I suspect it's because they know I'm going for preventative surgery and that I've got carpal tunnel. They don't like me wearing my wrist brace and I've gotta get a letter from my GP! They gave me a verbal warning through our manageress who used to be a friend but not any more! I can't believe they've done this after 24 years. I feel very hurt and keep bursting in to tears. I now know what it's like to have clinical depression. We have a friend who is an employment lawyer who I'm trying to get in touch with through a couple of friends. I also have spoken to a family member who went through a similar experience. I am very grateful for any advice As if I haven't got enough problems with the BRCA and the breast cancer. It's enough to throw me over the edge.
I am a breast cancer survivor and a very lucky person.I have also now found out I have a BRCA2 mutation-not so lucky after all but then perhaps I am!
After being a 2 year survivor I have now been diagnosed with metastic secondary breast cancer and I'm scared stiff.
