So a bunch of you have been following me through this whole breast lump/biopsy freakout. Turns out I was worried for a good reason because this morning I got the diagnosis I have breast cancer. I am 28 years old and totally scared and shocked and overwhelmed. It really sucks. I’ve been through every possible emotion today, I am so exhausted! I can’t even imagine facing tomorrow or every day after that. I’ve tried looking online at a few cancer support sites, but honestly, they do more harm than good because they scare the sh*t out of me! Right now I’m just trying to find positive stories of survivors and people who pulled through amazingly… not interested in all the medical terms and statistics and scary stuff, at least not yet. I’m just trying to wrap my head around it all. It’s honestly the most surreal thing I’ve ever dealt with, I keep imagining I’m dreaming and I’ll wake up soon. Just a few weeks ago I was concerned with babies and the idea of trying to have a baby… and now this has become my new reality. So bizarre.
I take some comfort in knowing that I’m young and otherwise in perfect health and I know it is extremely uncommon for someone like me not to have a positive outcome from all of this. But still, when you’re actually going through it, there’s nothing to stop the bad thoughts and “What ifs” from taking over.
Thanks to everyone for your concern and thinking of me, it’s nice to know you’re out there even though I don’t know who you are!

I am so sorry to hear that! I have a family history of breast cancer on both sides of my family. I can say though that everyone in my family who had breast cancer was cured….

I’m so sorry for you. My grandmother had breast cancer back in the 90s. She later opted for a double masectomy. Science has made leaps and bounds since then. Stay positive, dear! You are stronger than you know!

I am so sorry to hear this news! I agree with floridagirlblue, take things one day at a time. Keep as positive an attitude as you can (I think positive energy really can help) and try not to worry. Sometimes we get dealt some crappy cards, and we just have to figure out how to make them work. Keep us updated on how things go, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers, and I am sending you positive vibes as I write this! Stay strong!

F*ck cancer. You caught it early and you are going to get rid of it. I’m hoping for the very best for your treatment and prognosis. You’re young and otherwise healthy and you are going to get better! Once you do, you can go on those cancer support sites and post your awesome positive story for other women to read.

I don’t know you but believe me when I say that I will be praying for you and your family to see your way through this extremely difficult time.
I know of two women in my life that had breast cancer, and they are both survivors. Over 10 years for both. The odds are definitely with you.
