I have my first chemo treatment tomorrow morning!! I'm a little nervous but mostly excited. The sooner I start, the sooner I finish, the sooner it's behind me! :)

      I'm with Jo! Keep your spirits high. You probably will go through a lot of changes, physically and emotionally. You may hit some times where you feel pretty rotten. But you're right: there is light a the end of the tunnel, and it doesn't last...

      Keep us posted on your progress. Best of luck!

    That's how I felt, I wanted to put it all behind me. It wasn't easy for me, but a year out of treatment , I can say I feel so much better. Make sure u stay hydrated before and after your treatment.

    Sonia, I completely agree!!! I blasted off to each chemo appointment because it was one more down. You have the right stuff there girl! A positive lets-get-'er-done attitude will carry you a long, long, way. It's a bumpy road but just keep charging ahead, you will get through this. We are here to help you in any way we can. Big huge hugs to a fellow warrior! Take care, Sharon

    Good luck Sonia! It's not an easy journey, but we've all survived it. I also kept a really positive attitude throughout and focused on the positives rather than the negatives. It's not always easy and sometimes I felt bad and broke down, but I bounced back quickly and I can't believe it's been 4 months since finishing. I'll be done with radiation tomorrow and it's surreal to think treatment is over. You can do it! It'll soon be a distant memory.

    That is the way to go about it! You seem to have a great attitude and that will make chemo a whole lot easier! I had chemo from July 2011-nov 2011 then 2 lumpectomies and then radiation in march/April 2012. I am now on tamoxifen. I had a good attitude and figured that this is what I have to deal with, I might as well think of it as my new routine. I had minimal issues and powered through treatments while impressing everyone around me! I was 29 when I was diagnosed and I think being strong mentally and keeping an upbeat attitude will get you far! Best of luck!
