  • Hi Berthag9. Please know you're definitely not alone. Most women feel scared, restless, angry-- or alternatively, hopeful, or reassured-- at various moments during this experience. It can be extremely emotional! Please reach out whenever you need a word of encouragement <3

  • Believe me when I tell you that you are not alone I remember when I was diagnosed 15 years ago feeling the same way You have made an important step by posting on this community There are many women who will respond to let you know that they are here for you. It is a rocky road and not so pleasant but try and keep reminding yourself that there is light art the end of the tunnel.

  • BerthaG, you should feel anger, don't let anyone tell you not to feel what you feel. Fear, alone, anger are all normal feelings going through cancer. Let it all out, talk to a counselor or therapist. I took out my anger on my friends and family. But, in truth, I was angry at cancer taking away my life, my breasts, my energy, my sense of humor, my hair, my personality. It can take a long time to recuperate on the emotional level.

    You will get through it, though.

  • I am angry, but i get over it. I feel like my life has stop. Like i feel a stillness, quiet within my self, and i appied for ssi and i was turn down. Talk about a kick in thw teeth. I aways work now they tell me no . they can take my money i put in gain interest and do what they want. Unfair. Like wow.

  • Thank you for sharing! I am 5 months past lumpectomy and radiation and reading your post made me realize I am sad and depressed and just the smallest thing makes me feel terrible. The elections didn't help. I am looking to have meaning again...something I can do to feel like I am achieving again (had a very successful career) and not feel helpless. I think that is what cancer does...make us feel helpless. We will overcome!!

  • But im ok cause im a champ

  • Don't deny your feelings or let anyone tell you how you should feel. You feel how you feel and they can change from one moment to the next. Underlying all those feelings, it is best to try to have a positive attitude...I WILL win this battle...I AM strong! I CAN do this. AND YOU WILL AND YOU CAN. Hang in there. You are not alone. I'm in the middle of my 4th cycle of TAC with 2 more to go.Then 6 weeks of radiation. It is not easy, but I'm doing it. I have wonderful support team of family, friends and church members. Surround yourself with positive, encouraging people. There are support groups you can join, too. You can do it! FIGHT LIKE A GIRL!

  • Yes its scary I had stage o it was under my nipple but instead of doing a lumpectomy and radiation I chose to have a mastectomy. It was my left breast its been over 5 years. But yes your not alone everyone here is with you and we feel the same Jo Taylor
