Hi Prof. I understand totally how you feel. Regardless of the good news, which is GREAT, you still have breast cancer and THAT is very scary and surreal. I remember feeling like I was "dreaming" and waiting to wake up. I did not think I was ever going to be able to stop thinking about it. People around me just didn't get it. They kept saying things like "you need to think positive", or "I have a really good feeling about this." Well, maybe so, but I was STILL upset and scared. I still needed someone to talk to about my fears and all. My hubby was scared too, and I tried to "sheild" him from some of this. I regret that, although I know he was scared, now sometimes I think he should have had to see it all. I think he would have understood more if he did.
Be honest about your feelings. If they don't get it, that is understandable, but do not try to hide your feelings. It is not fair to you, and you are the one with cancer. This is a great place to talk, cry, etc. We will be there for you all the way. Keep us informed,ok? We really do care and we really do understand your feelings.
