      Of course it does! As a two time cancer patient, I heartily verify that! BUT--would you rather live your life fully, enjoying each day for the good things that happen, or wallow in pity and worry, wasting the time you have left? We ALL will die sometime, afterall. I try hard NOT to worry, but to find something good that happens each day I'm here. How about it?

      So true. It's normal, especially when your scans are scheduled. As time passes it's still there, but it's more in the background.

      Hey Peroll, if you didn't notice the Big Brother censor machine redacted your link. put a . between the letters of the address and you can let it show that way, people just have to be sharp enough to type in the address without the . in it.

      You'd be unusual if it didn't! I've had two reoccurances in three years and am once again cancer free. Sometimes I can't help but feel afraid and worried.....but for the most part I try to focus on today and not think too far ahead. It's when I think about where will I be in, say, two years that I begin to get stressed. So I don't do that very often. My advise is to enjoy every day as it happens, try to find something funny, wonderful, exciting, ordinary and think about that before you go to sleep at night. Life is amazing - I think we realize that more than the average person - so remind yourself often of that! And then when the time comes around for the followup scan, bloodwork etc, allow yourself to be worried for those couple of weeks until the results come back!
