Re: [MOL] Emotional side of cancer

Dear Brenda:  I have experienced ALL of it!!!!  It will ALWAYS be a big deal 
-- no matter how long ago it was.  I DID have to go through chemo and all 
that other nasty stuff -- but it doesn't make any difference.  Cancer is 
cancer and it's scary -- no matter what form it takes.  I'm going in for a 
mastectomy on May 15th -- something that has left me completely blindsided.  
After being treated for sclc and having a double heart bypass -- now this.  
People tell me I'm amazing.  I'm not.  I'm just as frightened and insecure as 
anyone -- in the wee small hours of the morning, as Frank Sinatra would say.  
It's understandable that people are reluctant to discuss it -- cancer 
frightens them, too, but it is, and always will be a very big deal!  This is 
why I'm so happy to be here -- alive and on this forum.  I can talk about it 
without someone abruptly changing the subject.  Good luck to you.

Love, Kathy in Boise
