    Lost Puppy, so sorry for your loss and the diagnosis. I found that taking each day on its won and not thininkg about what tomorrow brings to help. Sometimes it was hour by hour. Keep focused, not on your cancer, but on getting better. I lost my Dad and its rough. God bless you on your journey.

    Dear Scared, so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. All of us here have gone through the stomach dropping "I'm afraid it is cancer" expereince. It's not fun. I am glad you found this site, it has helped me a lot. You don't have to fear about venting, we all have. Try to focus on each day, don't think ahead ...I know that is hard. I remember walking around in a daze, thinking I look so normal on the outside, but I have this awful cancer. I did a lot of praying, focusing on the good things I have in my life...husband & kids, grandkids. Get yourself a support group, most cancer centers have this. We are all in this together. Stay strong.

      That's exactly how I feel too, I look normal on the outside (except for hair loss) but then I remember....I have cancer. What does the future hold for me, for my kids, will I get to see my newborn grandson grow up? Will he get to know his grandmother? All any of us can do is follow the docs orders and the rest is up to God. Being around people or a friend who makes you laugh is good. Guess that's why my mom lived into her upper 80's, she laughed a lot and had the most positive attitude I've ever seen. Thanks for your advice!!!

    I had bilateral mastecomy in Jan of 2011, with no chemo or rad. My onocologist did not give me any meds like Tamoxifen etc to take. Wow, I too feel guilty about not have to take the treatments. The surgery and recovery were XXX, but the guilt is still there. I don't know what to call myself...survivor, in remission, or had cancer. there is another lady in my Sunday School class who did the lumpectomy with chemo and rad...I feel sometimes that there is more concern for her. I know that sounds selfish, but I do agree that they don't understand how we feel.
