I'm just going to agree with you--flat out. Breast cancer bites. Cancer bites. And I'm just going to let you have your feelings and not try to
rosy it up and say, "It'll be okay...."
It's not okay, I know. Go ahead and be mad---and I know what you mean about the Martha Stewart attitude. We're all expected to put on our Girl
Scout uniforms and trudge through our experiences with a smile and a pink ribbon.
My best friend died of breast cancer a few years ago. I went through the whole thing with her--from beginning to end. She, too, was young. She had
four children. She was such a special person. And she went through the whole thing like a trooper, with such optimism, and in the end it still
killed her. Cancer doesn't care if you're brave or not.
What really makes me feel badly about your post is how wonderfully everything was going along----school, new job..... But I do believe the same
attitude in which you accomplished those remarkable things has gotten you past this latest hurdle. And you will rise again! Once you feel
better---like some sort of semblence of your old self--- you will find another job and get back to where you need to be.
Life isn't fair. I've given up trying to understand it all.
But you have a lot to be proud of...your family, your intelligence, your strength. You'll get back there, OP. I look forward to an update.
