Body part/function - houston

Loss Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on September 15, 2012 View this journey (13 Experiences)

I was surprised when I began mourning my breasts. I didn't think it would mean so much as I had wanted a breast reduction for many years. It is a very different feeling when the choice is taken from you. I became very aware of my poor body and felt immense sympathy for my chest as though it was a separate entity from me. I would never have chosen to scar it or leave it with these odd bulges and lumps that prevent clothing from fitting even minimally well. I still feel like I want to say I'm sorry for what has happened to this body part.
