My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

the decision

I signed forms consenting a bi-lateral mastectomy and reconstruction. Its a huge deal, but the only one that offers true peace of mind that I will never go through this again. Once is enough!

It's a little different, but that "I want to crawl under the covers" feeling was the same. They year my dad died I spent a month hiding from my feelings. I went to the library once a week. Usually I go once a month. I spent many days curled up in my bed with all the kids (2,4, &6). I lit candles all through the house. And almost every day there was a fire in the fireplace. Light some candles today. Read some. Read for yourself, and read to the kids. Somedays that's all you can do.
