Hi, I found my breast cancer in Feb.2000 and had a mastectomy. In my left breast I had 2 lumps and 12 lymph nodes out of 18 were positive. I'm doing fine and so far all my check-ups have been clear. I plan to be around for a long time. Hang in there. We're all in this together and we do survive, someway or another, all of us. Hugs, Marie

I wish I only had a Stage II. I am not trying to diminish your fears by talking about Stage IV. I really do have several friends with your dx. that are still doing fine 5 years and one even 12 years down the road. My aunt survived for 20 years!! Everyone is different. I do believe that attitude and faith plays a big part in recovery. Try to keep the negatives out of your life and stay positive!! It helps me to keep a journal and write all my feelings down - especially on the dark days or when sadness comes my way. It is very therapudic when your thoughts are too personal even for this site. Stay busy - that helps a lot. Try not to dwell on your dx. and do things for other people or a hobby or something that will keep your mind busy. Someone once said to just sing if nothing else. Singing releases tensions and happy songs make you feel better. Take care. You are in my prayres.
Hugs, Brenda
