i'm a sixty year old soon to be Granny, was teaching High School full time, and feeling pretty fit and pleased with myself. HOWEVER......Diagnosed with LMS in uterus 4 weeks ago.
Still riding the roller coaster of high optimism to the depths of misery. Surgery next week and I'm scard of that too!
Husband has fairly high powered job, but has always found it hard to express emotions. Sometimes he's so matter of fact about this I want to SCREAM! He is constantly telling me evrything's going to be fine and I'm sure he believes that as soon as the surgery is over I'll need to rest for a week or two then all will be back to "normal". At the moment it feels a bit like a bad dream.
Any suggestions as to how I keep calm and not hit him over the head for being SO cheerful and breezy when sometimes I just want to think about a new way of life......I think I'm over teaching now and there are so many other things I want to do!
Best wishes to all you lovely people out there who are having a hard time. I feel a bit of a fraud really being quite well at present ((apart from the tumour) but still feeling sorry for myself.
