      Hi Beaner 54! I'm a newbie here too, but I've had some very nice people respond - helpful folks too. I think this is a great forum. Give it time. I'm sure you'll get more interaction with others who can be helpful. My mother has cervical cancer, so you are in understanding company here.

      It's a big site with a lot of different issues and types of cancer, so I guess response to something specific is a matter of chance. Not sure how much help my story could be to you, as my endometrial cancer was stage 1 and I had limited treatment - only hysterectomy. I am three months after recovery, doing fine physically, but still fragile emotionally and psychologically. I still go to a cancer support group once a week, and am taking tentative steps towards normal life again, or at least the "new normal".. . not sure anything can ever be considered normal again after a cancer diagnosis. But I wanted to give some response to your question and let you know you're not alone, and hopefully encourage you in your day to day struggle. The one day at a time strategy has been a help to me, as well as trying to keep focused on a positive attitude and keep as involved as you can with people and with things you like to do, to distract you from gloom and doom thoughts. Remember that cancer treatments have progressed a lot and many more people are survivors today than in the past. Good luck to you and believe you will get through it successfully.

      This site is not really set up as a discussion forum or social media site. It primarily provides this section for asking specific questions and an individual home page that other can see if they subscribe. My experience has been that users of this site are very forthcoming with information and experiences in response to specific questions, but it really doesn't lean itself to general chat.

      I have had some great answers to my questions here. I also joined a yahoo group, but they aren't too chatty either.

      I've gotten a lot of good feedback from the questions I've posted. I've also seen other responses where people offer to exchange emails, which is an option when you click on the person's username. Then, it's up to the people involved if emails are exchanged.

      Hi there :) Doing ok thank God. Went in for chemo today which completes my 2nd cycle. The more questions and people you "follow", the more interaction with others you'll have. Also don't be afraid to post updates and experiences with detailed info on your wall. Sometimes it helps me to get my experiences and emotions out that way. Questions you post can be about pretty much anything going on in your life and journey with cancer. We're all here for the same thing you are. Sending hugs your way. Hope to be hearing from you soon! :)
