I had Papillary thyrpid cancer, my thyroid, along with its cancer, removed almost two years ago. in november my father in law died, and my world which had been held in a delicate balance was thrown to the wind. I watched my mother in law cope and deal and become strong. One thing she did was join a forum, like this, she sugested i find one. So this is my first "post". I feel like i am tired of being tired, slow, medicated. But I am so young and i have my whole life ahead of me, one which i have been latley thinking will be filled with sickness and pills and Drs. I know this is negative, which is a bad start, but if i didnt feel neagtive I wouldnt need to post on a discusion board. I had a very minor dental surgery last week, which has put me up all week, not because of the dentist, but becasue of my body. I have pain a lot, salivary gland damage from the radiation, and the added dental work has made me really sad. I just want to feel like ME again. Am I whinning, i think so a bit, but so are we all, which is why we're here, becasue who else can we complain to besides people who know what its like to be us, to be tired and frustrated, but still be normal mostly healthy people. I wonder why Dr's say "its the best cancer to have, its not a big deal, your going to be fine" did they have thyroid cancer, do they know what it feels like?
