I was just diagnosed with stomach cancer (gone now....so they say) and stage 4 metastatic colon cancer (which has not reached any organs yet) in April this year (2013). I was just wondering if anyone would care to share when they were diagnosed with me. I have my ups and downs, but find myself anxiety ridden with what is going to happen to me quite often. Every little thing that comes up (whether it be a pain, tiredness, or even feeling wonderful for the day) scares me. Is this normal? When I feel good...I'm scared. When I feel bad...I'm scared. I have a lot of family and friends to help me through this, but it doesn't seem to be helping me very good. I feel like they are trying there hardest to keep me positive, but they don't have cancer so how do they know what and how I feel?
i do like reading everyone's stories on this site. I would like to get to know you all a little better. I feel this site would help me better since I'm "chatting" with people that DO know what and how I feel.
hope to hear from anyone soon!
