now what next i wonder

few months ago diagnosed with 3 types of arthritis since then diagnosed with invasive carcinoma ( breast )  had the lumpectomy, saw the doc , it will be 6 weeks as of 1st May when i see the surgeon again , and a week after that I see the oncologist.  I was told by the doc at the last appointment that its a small cancer and i will be given radiation and hormone therapy.   I fear that by the time i get trreatment it will be bigger or something.   I know my life isnt worth anything to any one cept my autistic daughter .  there is just me and daughter now , friends i thought i had i dont . i  didnt know depression could go this deep but it can and though psychiatrist has upped the meds ( last year) i ve not seen him since then cos I cant get there so I upped them myself but they dont help  isnt it so typical , spend your life helping everyone else then when you need help ...........................

Morning @tisme, how are you doing this morning?

 

I can well understand how scary all of this is for you, have you spoken to Cancer Council at all? We have a program called Cancer Connect, where you can speak to one of our trained volunteers who have had the same or similar cancer and/or treatment and are now well again. Many people find this very helpful, as you get matched with someone who has been there. Give 13 11 20 a call today if you get a chance and ask about Connect.

 

Can I ask how old your daughter is?

 

Sending hugs Heart
