My diagnosis was only yesterday so this is all very new to me. Thank you for sharing your views in this forum. I have 2 children and am very grateful and feel blessed that I was able to have them before being diagnosed with PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome) and then endometrial cancer.
I've only told my immediate family at this point and am not sure how telling others will go. I'm amazed at some of the people's reactions you guys have shared - and I love your reaction to "Well, it's the best cancer to have" Chatterdog - (which I like to think is like saying what is the best animal poo to eat). Couldn't have said it better!
I know there are many others with harsher cancers etc, but being afraid of the unknown is still a scary place to be. Thanks for letting me join in the conversation.

I feel awkward and a bit nervous here. I guess it's because the diagnosis was only yesterday. It's all so surreal at this point and I'm just glad I found a place where people may have some insight.
I'm grateful that such a forum exists and hope to 'meet' some people on similar journeys.
Sending love & light to you all,
