      You certainly don't have to be queenie, shoot, I can barely speak much less write well. This is a place where you say what you want to, ask what you need to, and don't worry about if your I is before the E, after all that's not that important right now, is it?

      You can go to the people tab at the top of the page, and click on the breast cancer tab on the left of that page and get thousands of people that have fought breast cancer.

      If you need help with anything around the site, please let me know.

      well, I fought NHL not breast cancer, but I blogged about my experience at www.larrythelymphoma.com if you are interested in checking it out. I also did a guest post for whatnext a few days ago :)

      I understand and want to welcome you to our site. The written word has always been a form of release for me - However, more recently I am just not interested in sending out all those "updates" and "newsletters" to family and friends. To be honest, I fear that I may have overloaded them during those dark times -- and I may have reached a point where I do not need that form of release. Anyway -- previousIy I posted details (and I mean details!) of my journey on my wall. There are plenty of stories for you to view and compare. If I can offer any further info, please ask. I wish you the best.

      I've written my story. The humor, the crazy(not just my own but that of my family and friends also), the agony--it's all in capsulized in 60,000 words. We are the same stage, similar age. Email me, and I'll send you a copy. You'd be doing me a favor as well, I'd love to have your opinion as, eventually, I'd like to have it published.

      I would like to thank all of you "answerers". At first I kind of felt alone, at least in my family (see my OH NO). I am greatful for all of you in this community.
