      HearMeRoar, I specifically said we all have a RIGHT to feel any way about anything, but that doesn't make it kind or mentally healthy. Yes, everyone has problems. Being bitter about anything, from cancer to family issues, just keeps a person unhappy when they could move on afterwards and be happy, like LindaP wants to.

      Nobody commenting above seems to be a "pink pusher"---instead we empathized and would simply handle LindaP's problem various ways.

      HearMeRoar, I'm sorry to see from your Profile that you are only 40, and I realize that your age may make handling cancer more difficult. I would suggest you tell your doctor how you feel and let them decide if you need an antidepressant or recommend a counselor for you. It's common for women taking estrogen-suppressing drugs to be clinically depressed, so don't be embarrassed to ask. There are often support groups for "young breast cancer survivors," or you could ask your doctor about starting one in your area.

      Then. . . if HearMeRoar really describes you. . .Yes, put on your big girl pants and move on.
