    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I am terrified to hear the word Cancer. I so need someone to talk to that has been through this.

    My mind/Sense of Humor

    Loss

    Just kind of hitting me today that I am now and forever a cancer patient. Even if I am cured, there will always be that lurking what if. And I will see an oncologist forever more. Added to my constant Rheumatoid doc, when will I have time to go to work? I am just so tired today.......

    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    I am so glad, I have finished treatment, had my follow up mammograms and am cancer free. What a relief and from this end of the journey, it was so much less difficult that my imagination feared. Life is so wonderful as a survivor. Love and hope to all survivors and all going through the journey.
