Hello and welcome to the home of Word of the Week, a nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. The idea of the linky is to reflect back on your past week and share it with us. It’s great if you can sum it up in a word or phrase, hence giving us your Word of the Week. My word this week is Worry and you can read more about that below.
I’m not totally strict on using just a word or phrase but please try to stick to the theme of summing up your week.
Since adding this link up party to a directory I’ve noticed a lot of posts, in particular, recipe posts, that do not fit in with the theme of this linky. I have made the decision to remove these posts from further link ups. So please don’t link up anything unless it includes a summary of your week or events in your life. Thank you for your understanding
There are not too many rules with this linky, just remember to read at least another couple of posts in the link up after adding your link. I will read and comment on all posts and tweet them out for you. I also have a Pinterest board devoted to Word of the Week and I will add posts to Mix Please add the badge below to your post so that others may find us and join in. If you comment or tweet then please use the hashtag #WotW
Word of the Week is open from 6am on Friday Morning to 12 noon on Monday. Plenty of time to join in!
If you are unfamiliar with the Word of the Week linky then please feel free to ask any questions. New linkers are always welcome, we love to hear what you have been up to in the past week.
MY WORD OF THE WEEK
Monday was the day I missed my first hospital treatment and despite my worrying, it’s so far so good. I also received the letter of feedback from my consultant who has plans for the future if I don’t go back to the IVIG. I feel kind of strange because I wanted the IVIG so much at first, I felt it would be my miracle cure. And I’ve struggled with it not giving me the relief I had hoped for. The side effects have been horrendous and I’m pretty sure it was doing more damage than good. I guess time will tell if I’m better off without it. Although, I admit, I will miss the lovely staff on the ward.
Also, this week I got the results from my mammogram and all is well. I knew it would be, I had no suspicions and the test was just routine. But it’s weird how you go for a routine test and then worry constantly until the results come back. All the ‘what ifs’ have been going around my head this week.
On Monday we had friends around who were going through a rough patch and needed some outside opinions. We were happy to help but I swear, I felt like banging their heads together. How can two people not see that their problems are nothing to worry about. Of course, it’s easy for me to say, I’m the outsider. But, I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt and ‘Frankie says Relax.’ (Oh yes, that t-shirt!)
Don’t Worry, Be Happy
I know it’s easier said than done. I know that worry plays a huge part in so many lives, mine included. I don’t think anyone is ever free from worry, even if it’s not personal it’s, what will happen after Brexit, what damage are we doing to our planet and so on.
Worry can be a good thing because with out it we might not reach out for help. We may not make any changes. And it brings so much relief once our fears have subsided.
So, even though I feel ovewhelmed with so many things to worry about right now, I know that deep down, I will be happy again some day.
Now, it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week.

I like your take on worry leading to happier times. I hope the new treatment is just that. Glad your other test came out clear. I do envy people who can put it out of their minds until the results come through. I am not one of them. Chuckling as your reference to the Relax tshirt hurtled me back to the 80s. There were some great slogan tshirts then. Hope you have a great weekend and thank you for hosting.
It’s a shame that the IVIG didn’t turn out to be the miracle cure you were hoping for but hopefully not having it will be a positive thing. Glad to hear that all was well with the mammogram. It does feel sometimes that there are a lot of things to worry about – I worry a lot about Brexit and climate change too. It’s hard when it feels like there isn’t much you can do to help sometimes as well. Hope things feel less overwhelming soon. Thanks for hosting #WotW x
Oh I relate to this word choice so much! I’ve always been a big worrier. Recently I’ve been working on it a lot with meditation and have noticed a huge difference. There are things in life we should worry about, like you say it helps us to recognise when things are wrong and that we need help! Learning to let go of the small stuff that doesn’t even matter is very freeing though! #wotw
Know what you mean about waiting fror the results of a routine test and knowing, and yet not being sure what the results will be! Pity about the IVIG not working as well as you had hoped, but I do think it’s amazing your positivity, and that has to impact on your condition, and how you cope ultimately
I worry needlessly about lots of what ifs when it comes to loved ones. Its very hard to switch off but things like Brexit I just think what will be will be.
Worry is a funny thing isn’t it? sometimes I feel like I’m worrying about the *wrong* things but it all works out in the end 🙂
I do hope you are better off without the IVIG treatment. It sounds like it wasn’t any good for you.
I’m glad the mammogram results came back OK. When I have a smear test I always think the worst until I get the all clear. Our minds really do like to wind us up.
Worry is a strange thing. x
My smear test results were not so good, but apparently nothing to worry about. I’m just taking them at their word.
