1 Year on here......

A year ago today I found the guts to register here on Jo's :D :D :D

What a welcome I got and at last I no longer felt alone and scared, I was still scared, cancer has that affect, but I got to ask alot of questions from pepole who knew where I was coming from and understood what I was going through and somehow it didn't seem soooo scary any more, I even went as far as to ask what to wear when in hospital...... :D :D BJ's and PJ's, remember that Lulu, we had our ops a day apart and between us we asked loads of questions and humour got us through :lol: I still haven't had the burning of the BJ'S (Bridget Jones Knickers) ceremony yet..........still fit in to them :roll:

I just wanted to say A BIG BIG THANK YOU to everyone for supporting me, listening to me, taking notice of me when I made no sense and making me feel "normal", for being there WHENEVER I've need it and for being there with me every step of the way.....Joining Jo's was the best thing I ever did, you're all the best xxxxxxxx

Congratulations on your one-year anniversary. That was a really lovely post.
And hang onto the BJs - tiny pants and thongs are 'out', big boy pants are 'in' according to the magazines. As I get older my pants get bigger, mercifully. I love 'em. BIG PANTS! Bring 'em on. The bigger the better if you ask me.
Anyway, I digress. You're a great source of support and common sense on Jo's and I wish you a really great year ahead.
All the best


Dear Dee,your post brought a smile to my face!i'm not far behind you(joining the forum) it has got to be the best support network that i've joined.i know i don't post as often as i should but i do look in regulary to see how everyone's doing and i'm thinking lots about people and try and send some positive energy to you all.xx
As for the big knickers......we have all seen them knickers on someone's washing line(i didn't think i'd ever be pegging them out!!ha)but hey i proud to say i love my bloomers(more for comfort)and i cringe at the thought of a thong(each to their own!!ha)
Anyway Dee,who would of thought 1year on that we are able to laugh and share the humour that helps to keep us going strong.....THANK YOU JO'S.


Hi Dee and all

Oh the BJs, they still haunt my undies drawers LOL :lol:

I joined the previous year just before my brachytherapy on 22-03-04 and have to say a BIG thank you too, especially to Sue and Sandra.

Jo's forum and all the people on it have been a great help.

THANK YOU from me too

love and kisses :D :lol: :) :wink:

Good Bye all

Hi Dee
Congratulations on your 1st year. I met you at Brighton,do you remember me pronouncing your name wrongly. I emptied out a whole draw of knickers that were not only big but grey. I had them from my surgery almost three years ago,then hung on to them when I shattered my wrist, as I found them easier to slide on. My wrist still uncomfortable,my bum still big,so looking for a more flattering BK.
keep well
love AnnyXX


hiya dee ,its fi,

Hi Dee

BJ's still in those too. They are so comfy!!!

I remember your posting - very funny but also very useful.

It is a fab site and a real gold mine of information when I was diagnosed back in July 04 and terrified. Thank you for reminding me of that.

Best wishes for your continued health and happiness.
