Hello. I have not been diagnosed yet because they had to send my biopsy results to the University of Mich for further consultation. I am 27 years old and they think I have sclc. I am devastated and angry. I want to live. I have a two year old girl that I love dearly and a lot of years ahead of me. I was a smoker. There has got to be someone who can give me some encouragement. Can't sleep or eat or laugh. In shock, I have no insurance. They found1/2 cm primary nodule with left hilar adenopothy. They did a ct scan and the thoracic surgeon told me that the tumor is fair sized? Thoughts of suicide because I don't want to put my family through this pain and I'm scared. Starting to feel distant with my daughter because I'm afraid to get too close. I want to fight this but I need someone who has had this to tell me what to expect and how to be more motivated. Need to learn to get on with life. Thank you for listening and God Bless us all.
