Help - newly diagnosed with breast cancer

19 Jul 2019 20:19

I am so afraid and unsure of what will happen to me and I want still to live my life.  My Mum had breast cancer and I can't help thinking of her and how she suffered.  I know it was a long time ago and things have improved, but I have nobody to talk to as my family live far away and my husband does not hear very well and seems not to want to talk about things anyway.  I feel alone.

Hi there ...

Your deff not alone on here ... lots of us kicking cancers butt ... yes it's a scary journey,  but lots of us on the same one ...  it may be a good thing your other half can't hear ... just tell him everything .. get it all off your chest ...

I've not been too good today, as think I was in the sun to long .. and feeling a tad mild sun dehydrating ... but I'll pop by in the next couple of days and see how your doing ...  Chrissie xx

Thanks .. I seem to feel differently about everything .. even eating etc .. it feels like life has significantly changed .. I feel myself suddenly looking around and noticing so much more .. I find it so hard to have to wait before starting treatment

Hi Mary .. so do they assess the body post lumpectomy . There is so much I don’t know ! Good that your treatment is in progress but a challenging time I’m sure ! Waiting for results can feel such a build up xxx
