I just wanted to let you know I changed my screen name to my real name.  Right now I don't want to be missing any life and everytime I looked at that it just depressed me so I thought I should change it.  I hope that is okay.

Thank you Kimber.
Rhonda for now it is comcast.net but when we get to Arizona and my husband gets all settled if he decides to hook up internet there Iw ill have to let you know then what it is. Also as soon as i get settled in again at the mayo if you want i will give you my number there if you would like to call me there. I emailed you again last night so you could see my email address but maybe I don't have yours right. I will take with you soon and I will try to find you numbers in my mailbox.

Hi Tiphanie,
I hesitate to answer your questions about my diagnosis because it is so minor compared to yours!  I was fortunate that my docs caught my breast cancer before it was full blown.  I had been having multiple lumps that had to be removed for 3-5 years and the pathology had begun to change.  I had the bilateral mastectomies and no further treatments and the lymph nodes were not involved.
 
I know you will be going through a grieving process with all this and it is perfectly normal.  You will likely go thru anger because your docs didn't catch any of this sooner, also.  Myself and others are lifting you and your family up and we will all be here for you.  Rest and be sure to ask your docs for good meds to help with side effects. Take good care! (((HUGS)))

Michelle, Thank you for sharing with me. I am so glad that they caught yours early and I am starting to have some of the anger already. As much as I went to doctors for all these symptoms and they did not catch it until now makes me very mad but I am trying really hard to let that go so I don't become bitter. I am wondering what they can give to help with the vomiting and severe pains after chemo because that is why I would prefer not to do chemo. And one more really personal question I cannot stand to look at myself now in the mirror because of the mastectomies, did that bother you at first? if so how long for you did it take to accept it? Sorry if those are to personal and if you don't want to answer I will understand. Also anytime someone gets a diagnosis of cancer it is shocking so belive me i don't think your situation was any less heartbreaking or fearful then mine just a little different situation but I am thankful that yours was caught early and treatment was successful. Can I ask how long ago was that? Finally I was thinking about visiting the breast cancer forum and asking some questions, have you been to that forum before? I get nervous, sorry. Thank you for the hugs and (((((hugs)))) back to you.

Tiphanie,
I think it would be great for you to visit the breast cancer forum. They will be able to help you with meds, coping etc...
 
I did have a hard time with acceptance, but it didn't eat me up too much.  Looking in the mirror was hard, I did have reconstruction which has helped immensly! That was over 8 years ago.
 
You have every right to all that you are feeling, write it all in a journal and that way you can look back and see how far you have come!  I know you are a Christian and that is going to help you thru all of this, also! :-)
