A New Hello

I have been looking at some of the correspondence on this site and am truly impressed! I am a second time survivor of breast cancer and have been looking for some place to share my thoughts and feelings. I hope some of what I have to say has meaning to some of you. I won't go into my whole history at this moment because I don't have much time right now. I did want to share something with those of you going through chemo. I know this may sound strange, especially from a 53 year old woman, but one of the things that helped me through my treatment was a PacMan game. I played this endlessly. I had a hand held game I took to treatments. All the time I played I was picturing the bad cells being eaten by my meds. It just seemed to be a mental booster for me. You never know until you try. Thanks for "listening" Eliana

Hi Eliana,

What a neat idea to play PacMan with a vengeance ! If you read "Kitchen Table stories" by Dr Rachel Remen, she also mentions the importance of visualization as a complement to treatment. I loved her book !

Anyway, welcome back, Eliana, we need to share stories to help the "newbies" get through this as painlessly as possible.

Big hugs,
