New to Site. New to Cancer

Hi I'm Kerri and was diagnosed with 1b1 Cervical cancer on Aug 5th. I had no symptoms and was found through a regular Pap smear. I start treatment (5 chemo, 28 radiation and brachy) on October 4th. It still doesn't feel real. I'm angry, scared, depressed and anxious. But I'm also extremely grateful it was found when it was. I'm almost 40, no kids and extremely single haha. I don't know many people but those I do know are supportive. Since starting my journey only a couple months ago I'm overwhelmed and surprised by how much help and support is out there. And I've been using it too, esp the Counselling. I've been bombarded with so much info and I feel well informed, but still have lots of questions. Hopefully this group can help with some of them. Thank you
