I know EXACTLY what you mean about the sense of unreality. Three months down the line since diagnosis, post-surgery, and still don't believe that i have/had breast cancer. Everyone is expecting me to break down and can't understand why I'm sailing through this as if nothing's going on. I'm not being "brave", just don't accept that it's really happening to me. A coping mechanism, I suppose.
I hope all goes as easily as possible for you. Maybe in a while we will be supporting each other through our "breakdowns"!
Love, Rose xx
