Janey Godley reckons chemotherapy is causing her to have 'bizarre dreams'

By Kirsten McStay

Janey Godley has revealed that one of the side effects of her chemotherapy is having 'bizarre dreams'.

The Scots comedian started her treatment at the start of the year after she was told that, despite having a hysterectomy to remove her ovarian cancer, it had spread and progressed to stage 3b.

This means there are cancer growths 2cm or smaller in size on the lining of the abdomen and there may also be cancer in the lymph nodes.

So after having several rounds of chemo, Janey has told fans that the treatment has left her with crazy dreams.

Taking to Twitter, she said: "My dreams since being in chemotherapy feel like they last HOURS but probably only minutes- but they are fabulously bizarre and full of tiny intense details - but there we go!

"The good news is - I get to meet old friends who I loved and who passed away."

Detailing one of her dreams, she added: "My dream last night was long and very detailed and extensive in sub plots - my old bar managers (pensioners in the 90s and passed away years ago) George and Eileen gave me their wee grandson for the night to look after and to take to school - his uniform needed washing.

"When I finally got him into bed in the hotel I was living in? I went to a laundry in Shettleston my old home town and ended up inside a shop that had been flooded and run by Arthur a customer in my old pub who passed away years ago - he helped me wash the uniform."

Janey added various tweets detailing the dream to some extent and said she believes their intensity is because of her treatment.

She has previously said that the chemo has 'wreaked havoc with her brain'.

She said: "Dealing with cancer has turned my mental health issues into a difficult unfathomable pretzel, the chemo & steroids have wreaked havoc with my brain & I am now dealing with this daily. It’s not a weakness to admit it can pull you down #MentalHealthMatters thanks for all support."

And many fans sent their love to the Glaswegian funny woman.

One follower said: "I’d say it’s a strength to admit to mental health issues. Having been there with cancer and without, I can say that my experience has been that things get better. Much of the time it’ll be what I call a ‘grit your teeth day’ but it does change."
