We DO have many stories of how we felt/feel going through all of the stages of this THING. Your feelings and fears are normal. Waiting is the hardest part.
I always felt my B/C was a blessing. It brought me closer to my faith, my husband, children and other family members. Friends were supportive and comforting. I met new people in all walks of life that have enriched mine. I am eternally grateful. The ladies of this board are friends that I would never have had if not for the THING. They have been a supportive loving helpful enrichment to my life. I love them all and pray for them daily, with you included.
Your life with your children is just that, whether it is a day or 100 years. Make the most out of every moment. You do not have to be brave all the time. They want you to be you, while having joyous opportunities to help you and support you enough to be brave. Let them.
Ask "Why?" all you want. While you are praying for all of us and your family, include a conversation about you!! This is when you will find the answers. I actually do not believe in the why question (not now anyway). I always try to ask why not. It gives a totally different perspective to the situation and a path for me to find different answers.
Many Blessings for the New Year

I'm waiting right along with you. I have suspicious calcifications that have increased over the last 3 months and a very strong family history. I've also been having pain in that same breast and under my arms, which just started about a month ago. That really is freaking me out.
Friday at 7:00 I go to the hospital and 9:00 is my biopsy surgery. I'm so nervous and just want it over with. Good luck to you, too, I'll be thinking of you.
