    Triple Negative Breast Cancer

    I was Diagnosed with Breast Cancer
    On March 22, 2019.
    Triple Negative Breast Cancer.

    I am Scared of the unknown, terrified of the truth that lurks inside my thoughts.
    Feelings of desperation and anxiety, crushing my soul.
    I ask myself, in a confused state., can I go through this? Am I strong enough to survive, or is it just the feeling of the unknown desperately taking me to a place I fear not go.

    I will continue to log my daily thoughts through out my Chemo.
    I had several test, from blood drawn, to Biopsy , CT Scan, MRI, Mammogram, and the worst was Breast Syringe Aspirations, so painful your eyes will tear up, and your soul will weep.

      You summed up exactly how I felt 4 years ago. I kept up a strong exterior but inside I was suffering. I was so angry because I had been so diligent about getting mammos, etc. I had a mammogram a few months before diagnosis and I was stage 3c at diagnosis and they found thyroid nodules that ended up being cancerous. I was a hot mess of anxiety and depression. The turning point for me was seeing a therapist who I continue to see every 3 weeks. I think time also heals a broken soul. I still think about my experience with cancer from time to time but now I have days go by without thinking about cancer.

      Just know that it does get better. You are in a treatment storm right now and as you finish treatments you will begin to see the light. Take every opportunity to pamper yourself and plan for fun things to do. During my treatment, I decided I wanted to go to Iceland. I planned the trip while I was being pumped full of chemo and waiting to be zapped by radiation. A year and a half after my diagnosis, I was traveling in a camper van with my husband around Iceland! Sending good thoughts your way. ❤️❤️

      I think we all have very similar feelings when we are told we have TNBC. We are scared of the unknown, we feel unsettled, we are in a constant state of fear if it returns. I was diagnosed with stage 3, also 7 positive Lymph nodes. I chose to have a double radical mastectomy, Lymphectomy of 28 nodes, and oophorectomy. Then 6 months of chemo and 3 months radiation. Two years later I had Melanoma and also squamous cell carcinoma. They also found 3 nodules on my lungs. This best thing I did was I found a therapist I could share my thoughts with. It helped with my stress levels and my fears. I was diagnosed July 26th , 2009. Choose to fight. I hope I can inspire those who have little hope.
