Hi everyone, I have been reading this site so much since I was told I had breast cancer just before christmas so I know I am not alone with the shock the initial panic and despair that I felt.
I have never felt so scared and so ultimately alone. I was in surgery for the lumpectomy days after diagnosis and now have had my second round of chemo.
My 12 year old was so scared initially and has just started high school so we have worked through a lot of it and we are all trying to cope with the new 'normal'.
I have weeks of chemo ahead and so far I am managing.I have found that I feel really tired and wiped out the first week then start emerging from the fog around day 8 or so. I have no idea when I will be back at work.
I am already feeling that this is changing me so much...anyway thanks for listening, this is a wonderful community full of fantastic advice and it has helped me a lot.
