i had my first treatment and had a lot of naseua. Today I am feeling so blue like I am wondering where I will find the strength to continue the rest of the journey. I know for my children I will somehow continue this journey but at this moment , the hair loss, the side effects and the whats if..  are getting the best of me. In the shower this morning I felt like I really was loosing it. I had this intense sadness and I can not shake the hair thing. I felt like crying and crying and actually did just that. Oh ladies why is their not a cure for this bc, why are so many women suffering. I dont want my daughter to have to experience this nightmare. Lets all pray that  a cure will be found and their will no longer be a need for breast cancer sites.. I am so sorry to vent to all of you but I just need a little inspiration.
Thanks to all who read and listen to my venting. Maybe a better day tomorrow. One day at a time.

Dear LeahN, I want to start off by saying that you'll be in my prayers tonight. I'm 21 yrs old & I have seen my mom go through breast cancer when I was 19 yrs old. My mom is telling me to tell you that you're not alone. She's felt the same way. When she would go to bed at night she would hold her rosary close to her, saying "I trust you God." You can & will get through this. She says that she thought breast cancer would be the worst thing that could happen to her only to realize it was the BEST thing that could ever happen to her. She is a survivor for over a yr. She says having the cancer brought her closer to God & to her family. Sitting there taking the chemo she realized the important things in life. She was looking out the window at the birds, trees, not worrying about her house being clean or did she get to finish this or that job. None of that was or is important to her now. I know I'm not going through it but as a daughter I was there with my mom the whole way and I saw how she was feeling. Trust in God, just take one day at a time. One moment. The bad feelings won't last forever. Stay close to your family and just let them know how much you love them. Slow down & don't think you have to rush to do this or that. Even though you may feel your body is falling apart, know that your heart is getting stronger. You can make it through. You will. Anytime you need someone... we are here. God is with you. I'll be thinking about you. Samantha
