Thank you @Jalea for sharing your story, it gives me a better idea of what I’m in for...I’m finding that the better prepared I am, the stronger I feel, even though I also know that everyone’s experience is different... I too struggle with the mixed emotions, on a good day I’m feeling grateful I don’t need chemo, feel guilty like you as it doesn’t feel like ‘I have cancer’...on a bad day I’m so angry that I need radiation and drugs that muck up my hormone system... and that I’ll be worried about the cancer returning for the rest of my life.... And if one more person says ‘but you look so well’ .... arghhh (I haven’t started treatment!! And I should be looking well, shouldn’t I???) Anyway, thanks again for sharing your experience- sounds like I’m on a similar path to yours. take care Nic
