Diagnosed with breast cancer

Hi all

Im trying to make sence of my cancer if I have options and still carry on with day to day life of  kids and work . Any ideas on how to do this would be great. I can't get through the day without crying and that horrible feeling of dread just doesn't go away.  I know compared to some I am lucky there is many people suffering more than me but I just don't know what to do anymore

Hi Tam22

that feeling of dread is horrendous, and I can only talk from my experience, but it does pass and so too do the tears. I’ve found that as you travel, the more informed you become and with that comes strength. Don’t be afraid to lean on others. After my biopsy and while waiting for my results I clung to my husband. I was a mess, but it does pass and if it doesn’t please speak to someone.
