    I had my last PET scan for a year on Friday and get results tomorrow. So we all know the road you're on. No matter how much time passes we all have this to deal with during the screenings. I assume it's okay because I feel okay and that's the way I have to look at it. When I wake up in the morning I say a prayer of thanks to God and then say to myself "something wonderful is going to happen today". Take God's hand. He has all the strength you need to get through this and he is so willing to share it with you.

    June, I can assure you, you are not alone in your feelings of fear. We have PTSD from going through this terrifying, horrendous, treatment. This is a yearly reminder of that battle we all fought. I have 7 years since treatment and I have the same terror every single year when I have to go have a mammogram on my remaining breast. You CAN do this and just keep in mind chances are very good you will have a normal mammogram. Take a big breath, be brave, and go have that mammogram done and out of the way. We all feel the same way so you have lots of company. Somehow, we find the courage to keep going to be checked. Make a mental note, Monday, you WILL get an appointment. You will be ok. We all feel the same way. Take care, Sharon

    I used to do mammograms and would send out reminder letters, too. Believe me last year when I had my first mammo. since my diagnosis in Jan. I was scared also. Try to relax (know it's not easy) and make your appointment.

    Think of that relief of knowing it is clear. Focus on that. It is an ordeal. I just cleared my three months out.

    Every mammo that comes back clean is your victory against this sucky disease. You'd be a little nutty to not be scared. Honestly, my heart beats a little faster every time. I too was diagnosed in 2012. I know that YOU know you have to go but trust me, a clean bill of health is worth the anxiety of going. Love.
