Hello everyone

I am new to this forum. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in March, had 2 surgeries last month and am now being faced with treatment options. It's all very scary.

Hello Crazy Cat Lady

I understand how scary this is to you. I went through all of that last year. I wish you all the very best with your treatments. I would suggest you always take someone you can trust with you to your doctor's appointments. Always ask questions - no matter how silly they seem - this is YOUR journey and YOU need to understand everything that happens to you. Don't be afraid - be positive - think of life not death. Learn some relaxation exercises and don't forget to pamper yourself along the way as a "reward" that you have passed that step, then onto the next. Take one day at a time and don't worry about what may be - know that you will be okay and you aren't alone. Good luck with everything. Hugs to you Sandy

Hi Sandy, Thanks for the welcome and the encouraging words. I like the idea of a "reward" along the way. At the end of it when I feel able we have decided to use one of our Travel Auction Vouchers and go away for a few days. Sergio and I were talking about that this afternoon. He is being a wonderful support for me. Cheers Elayne
