Hi Missy Sorry to read of your diagnosis. There are a few women on here who have been diagnosed with cervical cancer. I think there may even be a special group on here. Seven weeks is early days in any diagnosis and it is such a huge shock to get your head around. Hang in there! Julie xo

Hi Missy, Sorry to hear of your diagnosis. I hope you're travelling okay at the moment. Those first weeks after diagnosis are like a roller coaster of emotion! I don't have Cervical Cancer, but like you I am a young woman going through treatment for cancer. I have Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and am halfway through my Chemo treatment regimen. I'm 34 and find it hard to manage with the isolation of going through Chemo with mainly elderly people for company. Older people have different life circumstances, I can't come home and rest as much after Chemo as I still work 3 days a week and I have 3 young kids. Being sick is challenging when I'm usually such a busy and active person, my brain' swilling but my body's not cooperating. How are you coping at the moment? My thoughts are with you at this tough time. All the best and stay positive! Catherine
