Very sorry to hear it ER.
All I can say from my experience is things can be an absolute emotional roller coaster with the big C.
The doctors and every level of medical staff have been excellent though, so I trust you'll be in good hands.

You'll be licking gee again in no time.

That’s excellent news Fkd.


Yoyo, you seem over invested in ERs gee licking

MrJonno, I and I’m sure all of us want to see ER back gee licking as good as ever as soon as possible.
The bored needs zaniness to break up the mundane, and ER is pretty zany.

Best of wishes to you both floppy and ER.

(On second reading that sounds like it’s either their birthday or they are a gay couple who just got engaged so not the exact pithy and sombre mood I was after)

Ah shite.

I'd say chin up, but I wouldn't want to be accused of telling an expert how best to do what they clearly do best.

Eeiiiish... best wishes to you both, FK and ER.

Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of losing my father to cancer (and also, because my father had a wicked sense of timing, their wedding anniversary) and my mother has started saying very dark and depressed things, commensurate with the overwhelming grief she is feeling all over again.

Bad times.

My boss had throat cancer about 2 years ago. Was pretty damn serious. She had chemo, radiation, got half her tongue and what not cut out. Shes back at work now, cancer free. Knocked her around quite a bit, she was over weight, now shes underweight, but she is back to living a happy normal life.

Might be a rough journey ahead, but chin up, good chance you will come out of it smelling like roses.

very little is worse than this tbf
it kills your confidence, distracts you from your current role (if you have one), and the endless geeing yourself up process so that you appear to be a good candidate - gaaaaah !

my tip for this whole process is not to try to smash through loads of aplications in one hit, don't feel bad about zapping a 'jobs you may like' auto email in case you miss a goodie, and just liken it to going out on the pull and yes you will get blown out a lot, but the next one you ask may well be 'the one'

hopefully this will cheer you up Salanya:

Spoiler: show
go on, admit it, you were expecting something rude here ! good luck anyways, I start my new job in a few weeks for a measly 30% pay rise plus car, but have recently just gone through this exact same process

Is that really you Yeeb?! :shock: - Good luck with the new job.

I resigned from my job, and now have 2 weeks left to find a new job and a new home. So the circumstances are the killer here.

Had a second interview last week, but still haven't heard back - apparently the GM is away. Got an interview tomorrow, and had a call that I would get details for an interview on Thursday, but still haven't received the info for this. And then another interview next Tuesday. All decent jobs, but some are better locations or pay better.
It's the whole mindfuk on the possible scenarios: what if they offer this before the other interview, what if I don't hear back from them, am I actually going to be good at any of these jobs?

Well, actually, there are many things. Leavy's injury puts things into perspective a bit :( And then there's ER's challenge to fight the cancer, or things like miscarriages etc.

But as common mental health tests go, it has to be up there.

Why would you resign from a job without another one in place
That strikes me as a bit careless

Maybe she could take no more? One reaches the end point and has to get out? I can imagine this does happen.

Maybe the job caused a mental burn out, which my manager was keen to enflame further, and I was too proud to admit to it and take sick leave and get the Union to support me?

Um- may I suggest this isn't the thread to have a go at someone about anything, whether its a career choice or whatever the subject ?
she's just had the shock of me being nice closely followed by the utter disappointment of not even get to see my Ascii jazzing cock - you should give her a break imho.

jayz, that's twice I've got you now Salanya ! stop thinking about my beast ! :lol:

Shit Everready, that sucks but you go this. You'll kick the big C's ass.

Having had a few friends in similar situations I will suggest one thing: when things are tough (and there will be times), don't just bottle it up and pretend everything's ok. Even if it's just to vent on here, on this thread, let it out. Same as everything else we talk about on here, you need some outlet to vent.

You make it sound like a bad thing and are criticising yourself, for something that was a brave and needed call. Big yourself up - you had enough and you weren't willing to take it any more and you did what you had to do, what was best for you: you left. So many in that situation would just put their head down and suffer in silence. You decided to get out. That's not a bad thing, it was brave and good on you. Remember that regardless of what else may happen.

Cheers Leinsterlion, though in fairness I suffered in silence for a good 6 months - it was only once things got tricky that I pulled the trigger. Two interviews this week, and one next week, and still to hear back from one other, so fingers crossed something will come good.
Oh, and I should probably add to the circumstances that I have emigrated so don't have the option to hide with my parents or family, and we're in the middle of a Brexit situation. Luckily there are some friends and a dodgy rugby forum to count on...


Winnie: remember this as the day that you were a bigger dick than Yeeb, shame on you.

See, you're still not letting yourself be praised or be proud! :lol: That's understandable. But from the outside looking in: "though in fairness" nothing. You got out. You did right by you. That wasn't easy - even more so after 6 months of grinning and bearing it. Good on ya.

And yeah, do lean on and hide out with dicks on rugby forums, it's surprisingly helpful :nod: :thumbup:

Never got to say Thank You for the kind words LeinsterLion :thumbup:

Hasn't helped me to find a job yet though. To the point of questioning what I'd actually enjoy in a job. Most jobs include working with people in some form, which is a depressing thought.

And yes, I'm quite aware that in the olden days, people didn't have as high an expectation of a job for it to be
'enjoyable'. But it's 2019, when one expects a job to be 'rewarding' and/or 'enjoyable'.

Thanks slick and dan. All ticking along and it turns out I have a less shit sexy version so in with a very very good chance of being grand. Starting treatment in 2 weeks and while it sounds pretty shit I should make it and maybe even have more attractive facial features
