breast cancer & need support

hi, i really don't know how to work this,  but I need help. At least someone to talk to. I had a radical mastectomy, but I was dealing with it until my family passed away. I never went out without my husband. He passed away 2 weeks afer they closed down my job, then 2 months later my sister & mother-in-law passed away. I'm retired now & I've been in this house for a year & a half. I'm always scared to death & I just can't make myself go outside by myself. I go out once or twice a month , only when I have to & when it gets dark.

Excerpt from my memior, "Nothing is Promised" posted on NY Times Faces of Breast Cancer

Undefined and vulnerable, I felt as if I were crashing backward through space. I slipped into a post-operative depression after my bi-lateral mastectomy on August 2, 2001. In order to keep what remained of my sanity, I returned to work too soon, but misjudged the level of my stamina, as well as the fact that much of one's life is uncontrollable.

Trip to NC

hello friends,  I am home from a long weekend trip to North Carolina.  Saw beautiful leaves and mountain top vistas and had a relaxing mind clearing few days.  Had a massage, soaked in natural hot springs tub, stayed in an old 15 room hotel (1890) and visited a mountain Inn that offers healing and relaxation in a beautiful rural setting.  They also have no cell service or wifi or TV, so I was unplugged for about 24 hours.  It was very quiet and peaceful.  Two of my mornings were spent on top of a mountain watching the sun rise.

Costume Party

I dressed up as a Steam Punk Birder for a Sci Fi convention this weekend - searching for the rare white Ghost Owl (Snowy Owl). No snow yet so didn't find any.
