Or Mary Ann. Sorry you joined this club, but happy you found us. We're a diverse group of ladies sharing at least one common thread -- breast cancer. We also have some sister's family members write from time to time -- mostly their loved ones are no longer with us. 
Like you, I found this site well into  my treatment -- just as I was finishing chemo and starting radiation. I wish I had found it six months before.  If you have questions, just ask. It is very likely that someone here has experienced it or knows how to do the research.  Some of these women are just brilliant!
I believe the thing I like the least about having BC is that before BC, I had never been sick or taken a regular medicine except for yearly allergy flare-ups. Now I have been diagnosed with high cholesterol, pre-diabetic and my internist is now placing me on Synthroid for "auto-immune thyroiditis" (Hashimoto's disease which I have had since I was four years old - my sister also a BC survivor has it as well)
So happy you found us and again, welcome breast sister, to our site!

Hi Mary Ann and welcome! We're a great group here, but the kind ya wish ya didn't have to join...
Chime into any thread or feel free to start your own...sometimes we talk about nothing related to breast cancer but we're always here for BC issues or concerns.

I'm in Michigan, diagnosed 11/30/99. In June, I will be 1 year out from finishing Tamoxifen and will even be eligible for supplemental insurance for cancer coverage. Life moves forward, one day at a time...

Glad you found us!
