    Cyber Monday - My idea of the perfect shopping trip. Never leave the couch.

    Have your shopping habits changed since your diagnosis? Do you shy away from getting out, either because you don't feel like it, afraid of being around "sick people", or self-esteem body issues?

      I’m like you, Greg. All the shopping is done from the safety of the sofa. It scares me to be in public and I’m hyper aware of people coughing or having “sick eyes”. My brother in law started getting sick Thurs evening and I got scared I would get sick too, but fortunately he pretty much isolated himself and by Sat was back to normal.

      I love online shopping. It's so easy. And since my diagnosis, it just became a way of life for me. And after my knee surgery, it's The only way to shop. No lines. No sick people. No hassles. And even my granddaughter knows how to put things In the Basket. Love shopping on line!

      I have always hated to go shopping. It has nothing to do with cancer. Being able to shop online was been such a blessing.

      Well, despite staying out of public I ended up getting sick anyway. My armpit started hurting and a lymph node swelled followed by low grade fever and flu like aches. Pretty much slept for 24 hrs. Hoping I’m on the mend. The swollen lymph node was certainly alarming.

      I prefer shopping online because some folks are so rude these days. It just isn't pleasant to be out in the crowds. I'm between sizes so sometimes I buy two sizes and then return the one that doesn't fit.
