Thank you both so much!
I plan to be honest and positive. Great minds must think alike I called my daughter's school last week and asked that all her teachers watch for signs of stress. I haven't done it for my son yet, I think because of his age, it won't affect him as deeply like it will my daughter. But I will mention something to his teacher and school soon.
My daughter has a couple of friends and one close friend, but she has never called our home or came over, mmm... that one will be tricky. Maybe the school can help me.
When I have the mastectomy or possible double mastectomy will I be able to drive after a couple of days? I'm self-employed and I take my children to and from school everyday. I'm not sure how this is going to go, especially with the chemotherapy.
I'm no sure how to tell hist family.. I think it's best in person but I might lose it or Maybe over the phone is safe for me. Or maybe I should let my hubby do it, but that is putting stress on him.
FYI: We see his family usually at holidays and special events, but not on a normal basis. He calls his mom about
once a week, but his dad everyday since his operation. (They are divorced.)
I don't want people making me feel like a patient/victim or feel sorry for me. But I want support through this, I have acquaintances, my best friend is my dear hubby. Is there a guideline on Who do you tell? or chose to tell?
THANK YOU for the support, I really need it.
