I am having somewhat of another good day in spite of the fact I was up from Midnight until almost 5:00 am this morning....my body was exhausted but I couldn't get my mind to shut down for the night....popped a xanax and managed to get in a couple of hours of sleep....I'm sure I will be napping most of my day away later.....but all in all, I feel much better after this round of chemo than I did with the last one.....now let's see if I can make it through this weekend without falling down and going BOOM! lol lol lol
When I was first diagnosed with BC, I wanted to read everything I could get my hands on, since my surgery (8-16-06) I didn't want to read one more thing. I had come to the conclusion that BC had taken enough of my time and effort and body parts and I didn't want it to become "everything" about me. So I put away all my reading material, then when October came around I was flooded with BC commercials due to the fact that October is national BC awareness. I have to admit I changed a lot of channels and so many shows did their own telling of BC. For all the awareness it raised I am eternally grateful, but when I had those blissful moments of forgetting what I was dealing with, I found myself getting upset being reminded of it constantly.....this too did pass and I am back to finding ways to promote awareness, to find a cure and to help other women who will be on the same path as me.
So yesterday's post was about signing a petition to stop drive through mastectomies, today's post is going to direct you to the Susan G. Komen Breast Care Foundation..... Once again Congress needs to be reminded that all women should have access to lifesaving screening and treatments and with the cutbacks that they want to make to Medicare regarding this issue will make it almost impossible (financially) for our Older American Women on fixed incomes....please stop by and read up on it and if it moves you to do so please fill out your information and send the form letter to your Congressmen and Congresswomen.

Thank you so very much for caring about me and other BC patients who are trying to find their way to becoming BC survivors!
