Hi Y'all,
I guess I DID post something in August about my most recent diagnosis - I just never came back online and looked at all your kind responses. I am so sorry, guys, but you know what? I was so doggoned depressed about all this for a while and then what made things worse was my whole family (and this is NOT new) just once again wanted nothing to do with me. My mom wouldn't come see me but then because my sister threatened to expose her uncaring attitude to the rest of the family (and my mom is all about appearances) she finally did come up here but I could only spend a couple hours chatting with her over at my brother's house (he was also cornered into having me over by my sister) and the whole visit was just weird. I was uncomfortable because I knew my mother didn't really want to be there and was only doing it because she was worried what others might think of her.
Anyway, Jim and I had only just started dated at that time (July 8 we had our first date) and he took me over to my brother's place to see my mom. His impressions of my family? Well, he said that he thought it was weird that they all treated me like some neighbor who'd dropped in with the news they were just diagnosed with cancer. He said that if I hadn't told him this was my immediate family, he'd never have guessed that. I took a lot of comfort in his response. He was a virtual stranger to me at the time and even he could see the weirdness in my family so I knew, finally, that it wasn't "just me."
Anyway, as most of you now know (if you've read my more recent posts and blogs) that I did beat back the cancer for the 4th time and I fully expect not to have to deal with cancer ever again.
And for the gal who asked what stage my original breast cancer was? Well it was Stage 2 I think but they also never found any positive axillary lymph nodes either. I don't know. They told me in 1999 that I was "cured" only now I know there really ain't any such thing as "cured" when you're talking about cancer.
Anyway, thanks bunches, guys. I really appreciate all of you.
Love and Hugz!
Johannah

You are in my prayers Johanna! Stay strong (but cry and kick and scream and hoot and holler whenever you have to!) ~

Can I ask you what stage you caught the original breast cancer episode at? I wonder if recurrence has anything to do with original stage?

Thanks,
Dee

It is not enough to simply show up. You need to step up for results.... keep on stepping! Dee

hey,
I haven't been around for a while. Got busy with life and school and all kinds of things.
And then, about 3 weeks ago I learned I have yet another recurrence of breast cancer. This is the fourth one. . .
What am I doing? Trying to break some sort of record?
I'm going through chemo again -- six months worth.
Keep me in your thoughts.
Johannah
