Learning About Breast Cancer
First of all I would like to say I am really sorry you have to go through something like this. But when you get hit by something of this magnitude it is best to look for the positive aspects of life. For one, it helps me to know that I somehow bring a light of hope to many, even if it's just a dim one. I am 24 yo and was dx Sept. 2011. I decided to have a double mastectomy, just finished 6 rounds of tax/carbo, and will begin radiation next week. I had some time to grieve my breasts, that would suddenly be removed from me when I was just beginning to admire them. I had time to sit down and throw away my plans, or at least put some on pause for a while. Even with my grieving I still have episodes where I just break down and have a total pity party. It is all normal!!! I truly believe that things happen to us for a reason. We all are instruments of the Lord and I trust that he will show me where my next path will lead me. I have experienced more blessings in my life now than ever. Or it might just have been that I never stopped to realize how blessed I always was. Find the strength you need in your children, they will need a happy, healthy mom. Remember that you are never alone in this battle. You will come out the other side victorious and more beautiful than ever. We are all together in this and together we will triumph. Wish you the best.
