Re: Finally starting radiotherapy. Why am I not feeling happier?

Hi Nikkit

Its perfectly normal to feel the way you are. 

I was diagnosed last May 18, had chemo, mastectomy with delayed reconstruction and radiotherapy. 

On my first day of radiotherapy I had a cry in the car park, my cousin took me, she was great, held me while I sobbed. 

I felt much better after, on my last day of Radiotherapy, I wept again, laughed hysterically and then carried on with my day. 

Im cancer free, and every day I say to myself I’m cancer free and smile. 

Lots of love coming your way, take each day as it comes and remember you have got this.

Finally starting radiotherapy. Why am I not feeling happier?

Hi lovely ladies.

Hope this rotten rainy day finds you all ok ?

I've had a bit of a rollercoaster of a journey which started last July with a mammogram find!

To cut a long story short I'm now over WLE , Lymph node clearance,  query over need for chemo. Another biopsy , another infection and third date set for radiotherapy to finally start tomorrow .

I should be feeling ecstatic that the final leg is about to start but instead I'm feeling.....I don't really know,  a bit scared , a bit is this really  the final hurdle.

I know I shouldn't beat myself up but I just thought I would be feeling more positive. 

I am eternally grateful to have all you out there to sound off to .I am sure one of you will have felt how I am at the moment. It's just nice to be able to be truly honest instead of the fake " I'm fine " smile that has become a permanent fixture over the past 8 months xx
