    would like to ask all of you on this site to pray for me next week. I have my 3 month pet scan to see if cancer is still dormant or a recurrence has appeared. I have a hernia from first surgery attached to scar tissue that I have been putting off having done. Why? I'm scared to death to be cut on again and what they might find more than a hernia.....Is this normal? Also, is a lack of sleep detremental to us when we ponder at night over that question...."What will I do if it is back"? thing. Any suggestions would be a god send. Bless You all. Janice

      Hi sunshine, it is a common feeling to wonder and worry about it coming back. About the only thing you can do is to try to train your mind to think positive. Thinking that something is there, when you don't know doesn't help. worrying about tomorrow only robs you of today. It is hard to do, but if you let your mind run amuck, you'll drive yourself batty thinking about it.

      One tip for you about the site, please post your questions in the questions tab at the top of the page and everyone will see them and be able to answer and give you some help. re post this and you will get lots of feedback.

    Finding it really hard to get in the holiday spirit. After three years of chemotherapy; no hair; stripped to your inner soul; how do you get to the point of being human again? Most do not understand and say be thankful your alive; I am thankful to be alive; but; how do you come back to being someone again is my question? Your not the same person you were before the diagnosis or the treatments, etc. So my question is; how do you become the new you? I do know that god has kept me here and for that I'm thankful; but I'm still a lost soul in this society.

    I'm looking for others to communicate with that have been through what I have and to the extent that I have. Just finished another 14 months of chemo and very depressed and just need someone out there to talk to. No support groups here which is unbelievable to me; and social workers are of no help; at least the ones that I have been assigned to. With Gods blessings and prayers.
