    Sitting waiting around for doctors is not fun. I find myself having good and bad days while struggling to still work on my Bachelor's degree. It hasn't been long since I've been diagnosed, but already I've questioned my decision, and had one good day tossed in with a week of bad. I find myself scared and wondering almost everyday.

      It is scary...and you have every right to feel that way. You are not alone, we are here for you. We're on your team rooting for you that you will get through this. It's hard to do but try not to dwell too much on the unknown....the unknow of why this happened...of what is yet to come....focus on you today, now, the present....and of preparing for whatever comes your way. You are a fighter and refuse to let this bring you down. You will get through this. Your decision was right for you....and like you said the docs will be keeping a close watch....I know waiting is horrible...waiting for diagnosis, test results, etc.....but hang in there. If you need to call the doc sooner, ask for copies of pathology results, test results, do it. Knowledge is power my friend. It can bring peace of mind to some degree. I'm sending warmest wishes your way and just know that I'm...we're all here for you. <3

    Decision Point: After the official diagnosis I was faced with a decision. This was the hardest part. Since I was diagnosed with stage one I had a decision to make. I could opt to get a hysterectomy, or go with Megace. At 38 with no kids I went with the second option. I hope I made the right decision. So after a DnC I will start treatment and for the next year I will have regular visits and biopsy's so the doctor can keep an eye on things.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): After about two and a half months of not knowing what was wrong...on January 31, 2012 I officially learned that I have Cancer. I think at this point I'm still processing the information...and a touch numb.
