Just was looking through the sites and what? To my surprise I have followed and probably talked to both of you on each network.
I don't know why I haven't checked it out before, but you're right about being a little uneasy about " Being Out".
Me: Breast Cancer survivor 1 year and 4 months. Still getting over the side effects of chemo regimine Taxotere, A/C combined. Nice to see both of you on this site. And glad to see scouty from the Semi-Colons, thamks to Kathi M. and her wonderful sense of humor.
My partner (8 years) was my Care Giver and believe you me, it was tough. I must say I think I'm pretty lucky for her to have Stuck Around! Even now, she has a hard time watching ANYTHING about Breast Cancer on TV, newspaper or any kind of reports. Sometimes, I think it IS harder for those who Care for us.
Very rough patches, but we're still hangin' in there. Partly because we are just finding out that my particular chemo, has a lot more longer lasting side effects (bone pain, nerve, joint) than we were told.
Like at 6 months my doctors are saying "Wassup with you? Your not feeling better, yet?" And YES, that's hard to go through together, when you think you're gonna be somewhat normal around 6 months to a year.
Well, don't know if I'll hear from you two, but it IS nice knowing you're there.
Either of you have partners that had to go through this with you? I'd like to hear your stories, even if single. The response from you're loved ones, family and friends.
HUGS to you guys. Here's to you Scouty and Susan? 24242?
