As the days count down to the start of my year long treatment I find myself getting sadder & madder. I am also worrying about minor things like finding a wig Instead of getting my fmla & disability papers signed.

    You are so normal. In many ways we grieve our old self and the healthy person we once were just as we would in the death of a loved one . I had my diagnotic ultrasound and mammogram on Valentines Day last year and I felt so cheated since my husband and I had worked collectively 69 years to retire only to begin the long journey of treatment but this site and these women have been a tower of strength and companionship. Get mad, sad and cry tonight and start again tomorrow. You have a long life filled with joy ahead of you. Shout out to us regularly. Have a good one. Peace keep your heart. Jo ;-D

    Maura what your feeling is normal, but don't sweat the small stuff. Take care of your income & bills, that's stuff you need. Just take it one day at a time, that's all. A wig is the least of your problems. You may not even want to wear one. Embrace your baldness & know you will be as beautiful as ever! Prayers to you.
