So out of control
Hi. I am new to this site and just as new to doing anything on-line! I have recently been diagnosed with HER2+ BC; have had lumpectomy & gone back for re-excision to get clear margins. I am told will likely need chemo, Herceptin & radiotherapy. I have oncologist appt Tuesday week and am struggling to keep myself together. I have wonderful family, but I am usually the strong one, the go-to person, the one with the answers - I am surrounded by people, but have never felt so alone and scared of what is coming up. I have a boss who thinks this is all in my head, that cancer is something you wish upon yourself for attention and that living a mentally correct lifestyle is the only treatment needed. I have had a massive argument at work when I first told her of my diagnosis, how do I now tell her its looking like a year of treatment?
