Sorry to hear of your diagnosis its a scary unreal time your going through at the moment,i've recently finished my treatment,like you i had chemo followed by masectomy and rads,it's a hard slog but it is treatable and beatable and you can get through it.
my son was 15 and my main concern but he has handled it quite well,and used to buff my head when my hair fell out, although can't say i was quite so keen when he nicknamed me Carl after "an idiot abroad" when it started to grow back.
I found keeping a diary helped as it not only allowed me to poor thoughts and feelings out but kept a record of how i was feeling so i could monitor my symptoms/side-effects,it's also useful to look back on and see how far you've moved on.
Katyb61 gave some good advice if help is offered take up the offer,it also helped my family as it let them feel they were doing something positive as indeed they were (mind you i'm paying for it now)
This terrible time will pass and there will be good days and bad but you will find your strength to get through it.
I wish you and your family all the best and will look out to see how your doing
take care x
