I was diagnosed with breast cancer in Nov. 09. Just had my 7th of 8 chemo treatments with herceptin. I dread the few days after the chemo treatments because I get so depressed. I have dealt with depression for a long time but it seems to be getting worse. I go see a psychologist but he can't be with me 24/7 and weekends are especially hard. My husband left me and it seems like I have had so many let downs since with relationships. I really have noone to talk to right now. I feel very alone. I have 3 sons, they are supportive in some ways but the emotional part they expect me to be the strong one which I have been until now. I feel like a child and ashamed and yet again I feel fortunate because I know they're are alot of others who are going through so much worse than I, my heart goes out to them.
