Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Thinking especially of Dean & his Wife. Spaw (owe you a PM), & Gnu for making me laugh. I'm waiting for the results of a recent bowel cancer screening. It's the routine test offered to all folks in the UK between the ages of 60-74. But with my propensity for anxiety & depression, the waiting (probably about another week) is playing on my mind. The situation is made more complicated because my other med. probs. are renowned for generating 'False Positives'. If that happens, then the batch of tests to eliminate the FPs are extensive & invasive. The 'stats' are very much on my side, but I take small comfort from that. I think it was that great comedy icon, Spike Milligan who said: "I have a hero's body, but cowards' legs". That's about where I am at the moment....just want to run away. Spaw has thrown me a life-line with the words:"....he's proven himself a tough old bird...." Flightless I may be...I'm working on 'tough'. Trying not to let you down, Pat,
