Your not alone up in the middle of the night and I'm not fighting breast cancer although I had a scare in July and I have to be rechecked in Feb. at the same time my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Nighttime comes and I can't sleep and I work full time. One comment you made hit home, people do seem to distance themselves from you when you have cancer like they can catch it from you or something. At first I thought I was imagining it but it's true. It seems just when you need to talk to someone, no one wants to talk about it with you. That's why I find these boards so helpful you can talk to people who understand and don't treat you like you have some contagious desease.
