      Good,positive attitude is soooo important.Yes anxiety will creep in sometimes but there is life after or during your battle with this xxx disease.Do not forget to keep venting periodically though,and keep us up to date on your journey.Wishing you better days.

    Radiation (Internal radiation): One I began chemo, I was encouraged to begin radiation treatment. After a few sessions I began to become very weak, the mass growing inside of me reacted horribly to the treatment. instead of the cancer shrinking, it became larger. the cancer had jumped from a stage 2 to a stage 3c. My reaction was to cry, then I realized I had to find another way. another to heal myself, without causing anymore damage..

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I am not one to take anything that s manufactured in a lab... Or anything that has synthetic, man made concoctions. I began taking my first cycle of chemo and my body did not react well at all.... i was told everything I was enduring was part of the process. I didn't want to except the fact that i had cancer, I didn't want to except the fact that I had to take these medicines to live.

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): when I was first told I had ovarian cancer, my first thought was. "how am I going to tell my family, and what can I do to be rid of this?"
