I just wanted to tell you all how strong and brave you are! Every time I come back to this discussion group and read all of your input,it is an emotional and inspiring time. A friend of mine who is also a breast cancer survivor used to say that I was so strong,but she was weak and I told her that there are no weaklings in bc. You can't go through what we are all going through or have been through and be called weak!
I am not good with words sometimes,so I havn't responded to many of your sites,but I just want you guys to know how much what you have to say touches me and that I do say quick prayers for you as I read on.You are all truly inspiring-I am so proud of my sisters and brother! Keep on keeping on with the fight as long as there is breath in you! Don't let your cancer define you and have you-you are who you were before you were diagnosed,and I think we are made even stronger because of it!

    You are so brave
    Thank you for such a nice pat on the back. I needed that. You are so brave..right back atcha!!! There are many days i don't feel that brave. This week I have been more exhausted than ususal. I thought it was accumulation of chemo treatments, but now that i'm feeling better i think it was from the colonoscopy, followed immediately by the gastly barium enema. And all the emotions and fear related to this. I think it just took to much out of me. BUT i have my big girl panties on and feeling better. Thanks for your post sometimes when we think back at things we really were brave..but at the time i thought i was being a wuss!
    God Bless

    I would like to believe what
    I would like to believe what you say inre to myself, but, I can't. I am glad that you are feeling good! Cancer sucks, and, there is no way to be "happy" ever about it.

    Bless Your Heart
    Whenever you think you are not good with words, go back and read your post~ you are most articulate and full of loving-kindness and fellow feeling. We are indeed brave, aren't we? Braver than any of us thought we would ever have to be. I like to see what our sisters and brothers write~ it is so amazing to me to realize we are never alone. ( unless our computers crash!) It may be an insomia laden night, or a scary 3AM, or a rainy day, or no reason at all...but we can find kindred spirits here on the boards.

    Thank you for being a part of the family~ we appreciate your input!
