Thanks for sharing your story... you will find many who have gone through similiar experiences as you. I feel so connected to all the women in here, as many of them have "been there... done that" It is so great to be able to share you experiences and to help you realize you are NOT alone and many of the things you are going through are normal. I am a 9 yr survivor and I wish I could have had a site such as this to help me through all the bumps and fears. Best of luck to you and I hope we can help you!!

Congratulations on the good report Lorraine! I know what you mean about not wanting to go back to work - I didn't either :) But once you get back in the swing of things I think you'll enjoy your life starting to get back to 'normal'.

Thank you Lorraine. You shouldn't have to go through it either. I don't think anyone should have to go though it at any age. That is why I have a team for the Susan G Komen Rac for the Cure every year and try to raise money to find a cure.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

Welcome Kimberly, you're so young and shouldn't of had to go thru at a young age.
I was just diagnosed Jan 08, had a lumpectomy in Feb. but it was bigger then they expected, so I had a mastectomy and reconstruction on April 1st. Luckily I don't need chemo or radiation. I go back to see the plastic surgeon on wed, to see what step is next.

Hi,
Just read your story. Breast cancer hit me in 2001. You can do anything you want to do. Never let anything stop you. I have done more since I have had cancer. I have written a couple of blobs you might want to read. I had very little support when it happen to me. But that is okay now. I will be strong and not let anything stand in my way. I am 55 years old and I tell my doctors that I am going to live to be 83. Why that number? Because my grandfather was that age when he died. I remember great times with my grandparents and that is what my goal is. Cancer only puts your life on hold . I have no wants for material things. If I can get up and do my day that is enough for me. I am so sorry that your doctor let that go . I hope he is not still doing his job. Hang in there and I hope all your dreams come true. This is the greatest group of women in this group. I wished I would of had them when I was going threw my cancer. Good luck.

Just give it away!!!

Hello, In June 2006 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was 28 at the time and had felt a small pea sized lump in my left breast. I went to my Gyn and he said he felt nothing,that I was too young and had no family history and to take Vitamin E and Evening Primrose. WEll, it got bigger and more painful. Within 2 months you could see it when I tood up straight it was so huge. I went to my primary care physician and she sent me to a surgeon for an ultrasound. He decided to take a biopsy. When he stuck the needle in it "popped" he said he was almost positive it was just an aggrivated cyst but he took the biopsy anyway. 2 weeks later I was hearing the worst words anyone could hear. And I went numb. I had a lumpectomy with 19 nodes removed, all were negative thankfully, so it had not spread. I went through chemo (which helped me gained about 30 pounds!) from August until December 20th 2006 and then began radiation from January until February 2007. I was numb until about 6 months ago. I don't know why I snapped out of it but I did. I feel like it never happened to me but happened to someone different or like it was another lifetime for me. I think my numbness helped me get through it without completely shutting down. Don't get me wrong, I had my breakdowns and all that but I held up pretty well. It proved to me I am a strong and willful person. I always thought I was weak and couldn't do anythng, now I try to prove that wrong and show myself that I can and have done more then most people. I am strong and powerfuL!!!
My goals are to stay cancer free, get to 120 pounds & have a kickass body, and hve a baby. I WILL do it!
