just writing to say that tomorrow is one year since my diagnosis. Yes, at 12:20 on 4th September 2013 I thought my world had fallen apart. But I'm still here and well. A diagnosis is not a death sentence. I wanted to write on this part of the forum to share that with all you ladies who have just received your bad news and starting their cancer journey.
It has been really hard at times. Really hard. But with a great husband and some good friends, I'm doing ok. My MRI and ultrasound have shown no new cancer and my aches and pains all seem to have gone.
A lot of the ladies who were diagnosed at the same time as me do not seem to post on here anymore which makes me think that, like myself, they are doing ok and don't need this support network anymore. So keep positive- you'll get through this. You're stronger than you know.
good luck and love to all you ladies out there.
