    So my endocrinologist says I might have a small pituitary tumor :-/ I really don't know what the heck is gonna come at me next I swear. Well let all the testing begin. Not really scared just frustrated.

      I know the feeling, seems every time you get comfortable with the idea your done with cancer, it says "hi, I'm still here" Keep strong and keep kicking it, you'll get through it.

    One year ago today I heard those words you never want to hear. I'm sorry you have cancer. That was a horrible day and it's been a horrible year for me. Feeling very emotional today!

      Rnay, I hear you. Ouch. I'm so glad your cancer was caught when it was Stage I. Your odds are very, very good that you'll never have another problem with it, even though it will always be in the back of your mind -- and sometimes in the front of your mind! -- whenever you have any kind of problem with your health. Be vigilant instead of worried, and your overall health will thank you for it. You'll find you are able to help others be vigilant too. Together we can turn fear into knowledge and darkness into light!

      Hope your doing better. I know how it is, the ups and downs. I am always a super postivie person. But sometimes I get in the gutter feeling down. It always helps me to feel better when I pull myself out and start thinking "happy thoughts". We wish you the best.

    Having a MRI of my brain this coming Sunday because of some weird symptoms I've been having. Hoping it's nothing and it's probably not, but very grateful that my doctor wants to make sure it's nothing.

    They will tell you the disease is gone. Everyone you know will rejoice and return back to their lives. You'll constantly wonder if it is coming back. Slowly this feeling will fade, but cancer will always be a part of you. It will define how you see the world moving forward. You're going to feel like the future is a funny thing to think about because the present is going to suddenly seem incredibly important.
