I hope I am in the right place. I just discovered after two mammograms and two MRIs that I don't have cancer, and I figure I should be throwing a party...but I feel depressed and I am not sure I understand why...has anyone else ever felt this way?

I am sorry to hear you are feeling depressed. You may want to consider contacting the American Cancer Society's National Cancer Information Center. Cancer Information Specialists are available 24 hours a day and may be able to assist you with resources to help you cope with the depression your are experiencing.

Take care and be well,

The day my chemo finished and I knew I was in remission should have been a happy day but deep down I felt depressed. This passed after a few days just give it time. I am glad you are OK.
