Hello, I am a 36 year old mother of 2 teenagers. I was initially dx with stage 3a breast cancer in 2002 (25yrs old at the time). In 2011 on April fool's day no less I was dx again with bone mets (skull, ribs, femars, arms, shoulders, spine and pelvic areas). After extensive testing it was also determined that I had cancer in the plural area of my lung and in both ovaries. I am at a complete loss, I have continued to work because I am the only primary insurance carrier for my family. I feel like I am on complete auto pilot. Depressed doesn't even seem to start to describe the state of mind that I am in. I feel like everyone around me seems to forget the fact that I actually deal with this on a daily basis. Business as usual. I really do feel like I am going to have an emotional breakdown. I just want to shut down and keep the world at a distance. Does anyone else out there feel this way?
