Memorial weekend I was diagnosed with malignant malanoma .22mm on my upper lip. Treatment was a day at the U of M where several removals took place, followed by 25 stitches to close it up. That's it, no chemo or radiation which I thank God for every day. Now I'm feeling like my friends think I'm wallowing! It still physically hurts quite a bit; the relationship with my boyfriend has changed; I'm a single mom of three and am under financial stress...I guess I just need afirmation that I'm validated in feelings of depression and feeling alone. It's not like I'm not trying. I started working out again and am going to begin volunteering at a nursing home this week. Any words of encouragment would be so welcome!!
