So here I am.  Out of active treatment.  Found out that looking forward to "it getting easier" and "getting back to a "normal" hasn't happened.  Instead, I discovered that the journey only began - that I will forever fight this disease, my mental health continues to be challenged and making "changes" to avoid reoccurance just makes me feel like Cancer gets to control my quality...screwed up, right?

So, here it is...Fuzzy's Romp Room.  I'm so ready to drop F Bombs and smack stupid people for the insensitive crap that they say and do.  I'm sick of medications "getting me through."  I have had just about enough of people on the other side who just don't get it, yet feel they need to say something to make a cancer patient "feel better about themselves" or whatever that reasoning is...

I'm hoping that this thread will just give a place to be 100% open.  I do love to write, and I do love all of my sisters here.  I do not want to offend anyone, ever.  I just need to let it out...feel free to do the same.  I thought by opening up my own thread, it would keep me from offending anyone else on thread's that they have built.  I'm just such a friggin' mess and I need some help to get it together ...

Fuzzy's Romp Room comes complete with padded walls, restrictive clothing/accessories (for the really bad days) and an endless supply of love to all of ya all.  Believe it or not, I do have tons of love and forgiveness in my heart ... it's just my head that's a wreck.

fuzzy - I will be your first poster!  FWIW - I think ditching the "getting you through" meds can be a positive step for those who are ready, not putting up with insensitive crap is GREAT, the need of some to say something when they don't get it is totally annoying, and feeling what you really feel and not trying to rearrange it to make others feel better is GOOD!  Making changes as we go forward from this point to try to avoid recurrence is just as much of a crapshoot as who gets BC to begin with.  If you don't want to do, or if you feel like it is controlling you, don't do it yet.  Learning to live fully while in fear is a tough row to hoe.  I am in the boat with you.....  I have no real answers, other than you can only live in the moment you are in.

Fuzzy, I love it!  I'm all for 100% open. Glad you have the padded walls.  I know you have tons of love and forgiveness in your heart - you wouldn't start this thread unless you did.

I remember long ago, long before I had any semi-concerning health problems  (I only have classical LCIS), I went to the doc for my physical exam, and I wanted to check with her about a pain in my foot.  I told her I wasn't sure if it was all in my head.  She replied, "If your foot hurts, your pain is in your foot, not your head."  That made me feel better, even if it was minor.  It took lots of years for me to start to learn my head and my body are connected.  I'm still working on that.

Oh thanks sweetie!! Its just so true. This is what we have...this moment. I need to live by my truth and it just seems to get pushed around. These boards have always been my special place-right from the start.
Just read about my DD (youngest) from internet posts. Here's another reality bitch...but she's got a foul mouth and loves Coors. Just adds to my world. How many battles can I handle...more importantly, handle well.

Today was MH day for me. It went well and feeling better than yesterday.

My depression is not related to BC I had it long before my DX...actually the diagnosis shocked my brain I think because for almost one year didn't have a depressive episode.

Then I had my last radiation and it sinked in that I have BC.

To be continued..........................

Hugs to all of you.

thefuzzylemon, LOVE what you've done with the room. It was so bland and non-existent before, and you've brought it to life with humor and support and what look like...beanbag chairs?

Fuzzy,

I love the room, but being a 70's rock chick myself, I'd like to donate a few lava lamps.  I always found them calming and rather soothing.

Sheila-I love the adorable picture.

I desperately need a sound proof rubber room i need to scream and say few words to NBC for cutting the last 5 minutes of Rockefeller Tree Lighting because the show went over 5 minutes.

I was really waiting for the tree.
