    Hi Fusionera. Just wanted to get in touch. Looks like you have had a time with all your treatment and you are such a beautiful girl. I am new to this and have had my 3rd radiation treatment today. So far so good. Misdiagnosed for about 8 months and finally biopsy showed atypical aggressive malignant meningioma. If there is anything or any information you could share with me I would so appreciate it. I have been having good days and some not so good. One thing I can say for sure. This is a hidden blessing in a horrible disguise because every day is sooo beautiful and wonderful. Life IS good!!! Your friend.

    Loss (Body part/function): I have lost vision and left eye over a period of 6 months. Having trouble coming to terms and concerned how it will effect my job as registered nurse. Generally, I have always had an optimistic attitude and a good bit of empathy towards others experiencing health problems. But I don't think a truly understood what others were going though emotionally until now.

    Radiation (External radiation ): will have daily radiation x 5 weeks the cyber knife. As of today only my second radiation treatment. Have been told only side effect will be feeling tired or sleepy. Concerned about returning to work as a registered nurse.

    Oh No (Misdiagnosed): blindness left eye within 6 months. misdiagnosed initially as benign slow growing meningioma of the optical nerve. Recent biopsy states unable to "put a name to tumor" but is aggressive and malignant.
