I wrote my light-hearted journal to help me face my fears.  Not only did it do that but it also helped me realise that nothing is as bad as it at first appears. I didn't write every day, just when the need arose.  It might help you, if you're newly diagnosed!  yeah I was encouraged by hospital staff and  other patients to try to put it in the public arena so am looking into getting it published, perhaps on the web.  (non-profit making to me, but perhaps to a Cancer Charity.)
Here are a couple of extracts:
 
Thursday September 21st
I'm so lucky!  I've been 'fast-tracked' for tests at my local hospital.  It's a Centre of Excellence for breast cancer.  A whole day is arranged for mammograms, biopsies and ultrasound.  I'd imagined it would all be very dramatic but it's surprisingly routine.  These people know what thy're doing, they do this every day.
As we walk back to the car-park I look uo at the threatening sky.  Only I can see the vast, sturdy hospital umbrella sheltering me.
 
If you think getting my Journal published is a good idea, do let me know. :-)

Hi Linda,
 
I created an online journel through wordpress, it's free and anyone can create one and I've found it pretty therapeutic to have a place to keep all that stuff and let it out - too, it keeps my family and friends updated with all the recent changes that have been taking place in my life without having to write to them all or call all the time.   You might want to try that too.  I'd be interested to hear of your experiences with this journey. 
 
 
Hope all is well with you. 
 
N.
 
 
~ Peace, love and understanding ~

What a good idea!
I'll look forward to reading more about your journey, too.
Until one is confronted with the disease, we (I, lol) only absorb the major headlines and news articles. Once it affects. us the learning curve is so steep, and so fast, it's hard not to be overwhelmed.
Go for it, Linda ... just do it.
