Just thought id say hi . pretty obvious that im new that why i post here. i joined about a month ago but haven't had the emotion strength to deal with my situation. keeping busy is the only thing I can do to try not to think about the fact that I'm petrified about the financial side of thing. I was meant to have scans on some suspicious lumps on both breasts, as 3 years ago when i had a biopsy it cost me more that I could afford as medicare stuffed me with no rebate and I was on a sole parent pension at the time because My husband and I broke up.
So here i sit still with no job to pay for the likely treatment needed to make sure I'm here for my kids. I think i'm also scared as I lost my mum to lung cancer 14 yrs ago and both my gran-parents on mums side had several different types of cancer,like breast,bowls ect.
I don't talk to my friends family or boyfriend about this, they do know about it but we do not talk about it. I think its just easier that way for all of us as none of us have any clue. I try to keep busy so I don't have time to think and stew on it. but its getting harder.
I don't know whom to reach out to to talk. it will be ok, stay positive and all will be well.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
