A warm welcome to newcomers and hello..
Sorry I've been away for awhile. Mostly it has been the pressures of work and simply coming home mentally exhausted.
Some have asked about my MRI report, I cannot get it yet (I don't know why, but I have to wait 2 weeks) the receptionist told me it's normal. Fine with me. I guess the growths they have found are nothing to write home about and they're not worried, well, I probably shouldn't worry either.
The drs still don't know why I have those shooting pains in my chest, feels like a heart attack. Well, I guess since I'm still here, it appears as though they're not . I don't know, they don't know, they're not worried, I'm not worried...I just need to grit my teeth and hope the attack doesn't come while traveling down the freeway, eh?
To all of those just joining this board...I'm glad you found it, you'll find some truly amazing women (and guys) here. It's a place to vent, to cry, to listen, to share and, believe it or not, a place to laugh (or just chuckle a little).
As for me, now that summer has come to an end-I don't post much. Work has begun and I've been working 9-11 hours a day (mostly the latter) without even a lunch break, then commuting the 70 miles round trip. It makes for a long day, but I should be happy to be employed, right? Tell that to Emmy who has been with me nearly 24-7 for the past 2 and a 1/2 months.
I doubt if I'll be on much, but know that I am thinking of all of you...honestly, a day rarely passes by without me thinking of my friends here and, sadly, all of the new posters who have come here in my absence. I pray that those recently dx, those beginning treatment, or in the middle of it, know that there is always hope...ask those who are now dancing NED...that's why we come here, to find a piece of that hope.
A good read: Between and the River by Carrie Host. It's a book about hope and survival. I highly recommend it.
Thank you to all of you who sent me msgs. It's good to know that angels are watching over me. I'll be keeping an eye on all of you, too, if even from afar...you can call me an angel behind the scenes, if you wish . I'll post more when I can reduce my work to something a bit more reasonable.
Take care...I'll be thinking of you,
