    Hi everyone, I haven't logged in since I was diagnosed, I think, which was April of 2012..well I will like to update everyone, since October 2012,(my first pet scan after treatment),confirmed I was cancer free..but I do have temporary and lifetime changes to my body from chemo and radiation.I have gained a great deal of weight from the steroids..and let's just say I'm disgusted with myself. Cancer done a huge number on me...I lost my job..was displaced from my home..I thought all that hard work just went down the drain.I became depressed..I isolated myself and became a grouch..I was mad at the world for what cancer had done.Then the Lord spoke to me and said you know,alot of people don't survive,be grateful,so I put on my big pants and said okay I have second chance to get this right.I gave myself to the Lord,I repented,and I can say that I look at life from a different perspective now.

      I hope that things get better for you. There are many here who can relate and help you through the rough times. Always remember that tough times don't last...tough people do! Best of luck, Carm RN.
