This thread is meant to be for RANTS and RANTING. Then Rant again. We need a place to simply get rid of the anger. Write it here. Unleash it all. Get it out. This isn't meant for the Stupid comments(great thread). This is for the gut wrenching, tell them off anger.

IMPORTANT: When done ranting don't necessarily stick around. Toxic. Drop the rant and find a better thread.

Only rules: Please, follow them as the Mods will shut it down in a heartbeat( waving Mods)

1. Be careful to not mention docs, nurses, hospitals by name. Defamation and all that tedious legal stuff

2. If it's caused by someone on BCO, just don't mention their name. I think the exception will be if someone is stalking you, blow their anonymity wide open. A stalker doesn't deserve politeness.

3. If you think the rant is about you, let it go, they're no names. Don't take it personal. This is the steam room.

4. If they're is a fight, don't expect the Mods to moderate, it was your choice to come here.

5. After writing a rant, do nothing more, re-read at a future time. Decide if it's important enough for you to cut and paste the rant to whomever caused you the anger. It's a choice. Sometimes it needs to be done, but remember they're can be fall out.

6. ######## pound those keys, SCREAM(caps), J*&R$WSDF&(swear)

7. Religion and politics discussion should go to those topical threads. IF their is something that impacts cancer, it belongs here.

I will revise topic box as needed-sassy

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "holy crap....what a ride".

I had a mammogram about a year prior through the mobile clinic & I was good about self exams. I found a small lump & was sent to have mammo & US, then biopsy. The mammogram only showed the one small lump in one breast & a tiny shadow in the other, not the 40, yes, 40 that the surgeon found upon doing my bilateral mastectomy. Apparently I had very dense breast tissue. I had a radical mastectomy with no extra tissue left for reconstruction, so clear margins, chemo, 6 weeks of radiation, then tamoxifen for 5 years & AI for one year before mets.

I am slim, active, eat well & rarely drank (then) I was busy with my own business but none of that matters, only pink ribbons & a mammogram.

About 7 yrs before my CA dx I had biopsies in left breast for what was found to be calcifications. Cancer was found in the same general area in 2019. I did go yearly but never really expected what did happen. Now I'm on the 6 month recheck train. I never found a lump...I told surgeon it all felt the same to me. My outlook is we never know what the heck life is going to throw at us. I have a very over weight friend who worries CONSTANTLY about dying. I told her today why don't you just live the best you can? None of us knows when our time will be up. My SIL also has CA of a different kind and we agree that it is always in the back of our minds but we still have good things in our life to enjoy and try not to be defined by our dx. Mammo's have helped with dx but they sure aren't the magic bullet. BTW my SIL lymphoma was found when she went for her mammo 3 yrs ago.

Because I was a smoker at the time, my MO ordered a no-contrast chest CT before my lumpectomy. My lungs were fine, but that's how my 7 cm kidney cancer was found. I was lucky that it was perched on top, or it wouldn't have been caught. Like a lot of people with kidney cancer, I had no symptoms and even many of those with much larger tumors (double the size of mine) are caught by surprise when being scanned for something else. Thank you smoking? Thank you breast cancer? Lesson: We really don't have many clues as to what our bodies are up to. All kinds of crap can be going on in there waiting to bite us. Get the available tests for the few body parts that can be checked, and hope for the best with the rest.

Part of the anxiety of having tests/scans is getting those incidental findings. Yet, it can be a good thing when a cancer is found early as well as other medical conditions.

I did enjoy having no tests or appointments this month. Next month I will meet the NP at the BS office (she is out on medical leave), so hope that goes well. It should, just nervous since I've never met this person. Then I have to do a liver function blood panel and see GI doc Dec 1. Yuck. CT scan of lungs and dexa also due in Dec. Yuck Yuck.

I'm kinda mad, or maybe just fed up. All year I worked on a project with a woman, the head of a small publishing company. She asked me to write a book on a particular kind of quilt, for which I am an expert. In many ways our working relationship was very good, but there were things I needed resolved so I could complete the project, and I couldn't get resolution. One of many issues was getting an actual contract, which she promised many times, but which never got delivered to me. (She is a law professor, so it isn't like she doesn't have resources for that.) There were other points of contention, and a fair amount of chaos. Not how I like to work.

About 5 weeks ago I withdrew from the project. Not having a contract yet, no harm, no foul, right? She sulked for a while, then things had smoothed out some.

A couple of days ago she told me she needed books back that she had sent me, and that she said I could keep. (Examples/models for the type of book mine would become.) Again, she had said I could keep them.

What it boils down to is that I can't trust her to tell the truth or to be consistent. Many times while working together we agreed on something, only for her to say something completely different next time we talked. So this is not the only time, by any stretch.

I had thought that we had also built a friendship over the months, rather tenuous, but I do actually like her. But I don't trust her. I don't believe her. And I can't be friends with someone like that. So I told her that.

And I said, send me a prepaid mailer and I'll send the books back, and then we're done.

I tried hard not to be "mean," just clear. She had hit my limit, and that was it. Life is short. I don't have time or space in my life to doubt the people in it. If I can't trust you, we are not friends.

UGH

KBL, that's what I think. I'm expecting she might ask for my address AGAIN. Which of course I gave her. For the contract, among other things.... ha. Anyway, thanks for your support. It felt better just to say it to someone besides my husband, so thanks for listening!

I think one of the main things here is, over the last few years I've learned much better how to define my limits or boundaries, both for myself and to convey them to other people. If you don't tell them what the limit is, they keep pushing. I'm also trying very hard to do that without being mean to people, just to be clear and say, look, you do this and I find that disrespectful, or whatever. And I don't want you to do it again. And when they do, just say, look, I told you how I feel about it when you do this, and you did it again. And I'm not going to put up with it.

It's really weird to get to be into my 50s and now about to hit 61, and feel like I'm finally developing the emotional maturity to do this.

MountainMia, I'm glad you cans find more support here. My husband is the only one who truly knows how I feel daily. I remember I started reading a book once. I think it was called “Boundaries." I didn't finish it, but it washow to put them in place. Most women have a tendency to want to please, so it's hard to try and change that mindset

MountainMia: you are so right to cut the ties of that relationship! How true, life is too short to put up with what we do not have to tolerate! Society tries to condition women to use a lot of their energy to make relationships work and tries to make us feel guilty or “mean" for putting our needs first. We can evolve from that limited way of thinking.

Your learning boundary placement is soo similar to mine that if I were writing a book, “Boundaries" would be the title of the chapter about my current life. It's astounding how angry others can get when I place value on myself, my time, my talents. I created a “Boundaries" folder on Pinterest and fill it with helpful reminders to stand my ground. Pinterest has many inspiring tips and articles on creating boundaries. Here are a few:

I would routinely drink a pot of it over the course of the day, just have it with me, sip away at it all day long, love it. Stupid #$%#$$ing chemo has $^^<$>ing ruined it.

The best response I can think of is "You know stress feeds cancer, right? Stop stressing me out!"

I'm so sorry for anyone losing their taste for coffee. Can you still be ok with smelling coffee? I LOVE the smell of freshly brewed coffee even more than I love drinking it.
