Hi Beauty

thank you for replying to my message. I am new to all of this.  I was diagnosed a bout a mont ago with 3 small cancerous ttumors in my left breast and was told I.would need a mastectomy. Since then I have decided to do both breasts. My surgery is supposed to be this Friday if the hospital calls the day before to confirm.  I am having a hard time concentrating on anything else. I still do not feel this is real yet. I had a real. Tough time when I first time I received the news, but have gone forward and still feel like this is not real. 

I am lucky to have a wonderful husband and supportive family and God in my life.  Have you already been down this road?  I feel like when I come out of surgery I might cry or freak out And finally realize it is about me.  I don't really know how I will react. How painful will this be, how humilated, de-womanized I will feel.  Will I be the brunt of jokes oat will my breasts be stared at if someone knows?  So many questions! Is this natural to feel like this before the surgery? I was given Zoloft to take if I need it, but have tried not to be dependent on a drug.

i know I could use a friend right now, how about you.
