Breast Cancer destroyed my life and my families this week

I don’t want to have cancer or a bilateral mastectomy and therapy but it’s that or I die. 

This will ruin trajectory of my teen sons life. Don’t want others to know or be a sympathy fest.

Dont want to wake up tomorrow😪😪😪😪

Angry, sad....lifeless.

Hi Tommi,

 

Welcome to this online community.  It's a great spot to let your feelings out.  

 

Nobody wants to go through this shit called cancer, but unfortunately, it happens.  We all get angry & sad, frustrated & looking for something to blame it on, but believe it or not, it's not the end of  the world.  Life does go on, especially for our loved ones.  Your son's life has changed, not necessarily been ruined.  Talk about it with him now & as things progress.    

 

I am grateful for each & every day I wake up, because it means I have another day to share with my family.  It's a matter of perspective.  Find positive things in your days instead of looking at all the negatives.  Even if there is only 1 positive thing.  Sometimes there are just too many negatives & if that's all you focus on then depression can quickly set in.  Remember there are people to download to as well.  Use them!  🙂

 

I  wish you & your family the best.

 

Budgie
