      Both feelings are normal. I was diagnosed late afternoon on Feb. 1st which was a Friday. I had the weekend to dwell on my diagnosis and waiting on a call to get in quickly to set an appointment see a gyne oncologist. I have been through many emotions. One week after my cervical cancer diagnosis I had a breast cancer scare and I was a nervous wreck! Thank goodness my path results came back neg for that cancer but I was scared to death because I have seen cancer too much in my family - mother had breast cancer (I am the same age as she was when she was diagnosed), my grandmother had cervical cancer and my other grandmother had lung and brain cancer. Even though I had my days of crying or being angry or in shock, I always kept thinking how strong the women in my family was during their treatments to survive. I was fortunate to have a great circle of family and friends to support me and made sure I fight to survive. I know you keep thinking about your last resident and scared but not scared. Nothing wrong with that because you will learn like myself and others that everyone has similar and different ways to deal with their own cancer. I wish you the best of luck.

      I am a neophyte in this cancer business, it has all happened to me in the last month and a half. The way I see this, we are going to war. We can hide, get angry, beseech the help from God, deny, allow our brains to terrorize us, but in the end we have to fight. Step back and plan your attack, fight like XXX, this is not a battle you want to lose. May your heart and mind be at peace.
