One week post breast cancer surgery ...

I didn't expect that I would be on this journey but, you never know what's around the corner.  One day I feel calm and the next day I may be horribly worried and scared.

Many have gone down this path but, it is a new journey for me.  Some days, I have to remind myself to, " put on my big girl panties" and breathe.

@shy bobcat - Wishing you the best in your recovery, and praying that this is the beginning of a wonderful, cancer-free existence for the remainder of your life.  

 

Big girl panties are so very important in all of our lives.  We all need to keep them handy.  We also need a good pair of cojones, and some rose-tinted glasses for other occasions.

 

Be well.

@shy bobcat I'm so sorry to hear this is a journey you're having to take. Your emotions are justifiably all over the place.

 

Keep reminding yourself to take the path of calmness as much as you can. We all know that stress negatively impacts healing. 

 

I'm sending healing vibes your way, and hope you'll keep us updated, or if you just need to chat, there's always someone here.

You have many sisters with you on this journey. Just put one foot in front of the other and accept that your  changing emotions are normal. You will get through this. Sending you support and compassion on this path.

Re: One week post breast cancer surgery ...

@shy bobcat  I am also a breast cancer survivor and am coming up on 6 years cancer free. (Thank God)   The thought never crossed my mind either but it just goes to show that curve ball comes out of nowhere.  I was fortunate to have a great support system which IMO is half the battle.  I pray you have the same.  

 

That's cute about big girl panties, but you can also be emotional if you need to be.

What I found was once you accept it and get into the mindset of the situation, you can grab that darn bull by the horns and get on with the healing.   

 

I wish you a speedy recovery and return to good health Smiley Happy
