I was diagnosed with cervical cancer (adenocarcinoma) this past Thanksgiving and had surgery during Christmas break. I am 31, single, and am trying to cope with the fact that I won't be able to have my own children. I am a Kindergarten teacher so right now it is a little painful to work. My family seems to think I should be over the "cancer scare". I only had surgery six weeks ago...where do I start healing? I am amazed at how cancer takes your self-esteem and leaves you feeling unsexy...I used to feel like a hot little tart! How do I get that back?
