Just diagnosed

Hi Barbiekins,

I know how hard this can be. I was able to tell my husband and one close friend. They then told some of the other key people. It was easier for me to not have to repeat it over and over and over.

On a lighter note, the day I got my diagnosis, I had to pick up my 8 year old at school. I was standing in the foyer waiting for him when another mom I know came up and asked how I was. Without even thinking, I said, "Not too good...I was just diagnosed with cervical cancer today." The stricken look on her face shocked me back to reality and I apologized for "dropping the C bomb." It was the wierdest moment of my life...I never do that kind of thing and am always in control and tactful. My husband thought it was a "breakthrough" for me and probably was as it has been easier to deal with the more open and honest I have been.

Hope and prayers are on theway to you!

thanks for your post Sherlyn. I thought that kind of thing only happened to me! When I got home from doctor after diagnosis
I went right upstairs to my best friend's apartment, sat down on the sofa and said "I have cancer", just like that. She turned white as a sheet and almost collapsed. I realized after that, that I should have found an easier way to break the news to her!

She still reminds me of this every now and then. I don't think I told anyone else quite that way.
