I have made a conscious decision not to research cancer or breast cancer on the internet. When I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia this summer I made the mistake of investigating it on the internet. The more I read the more depressed I became. There seemed to be no hope for ever feeling good again. Well, I’m here to tell you that that is not true. With medication and exercise I have been able to get my Fibro down to a reasonable level of control.
I am relying on the doctors to tell me what I need to know about cancer. I have had several people suggest support groups to me, but I know that is not for me. I don’t want to sit and listen to horror stories and get more and more afraid of what is to come for me. I also don’t want to dwell on this. I have decided that I will be positive and happy through out this no matter what. That is not to say that I don’t break down and cry once in awhile. I am not denying my feelings, I just choose to be happy. Happiness is a choice. You either are or you’re not.
Luckily I have found a few casual friends that have had breast cancer and/or other kinds of cancer. They have all been very encouraging and the fact that they are still here on this earth to talk to is a good sign. ha
