Foxy, that's fantastic advice. I followed a lot of it too. Although I don't have kids I wanted my boyfriend not to feel like our life was over. We needed to stay strong for each other - which we did most, but not all, days on this path. It's been 19 months and 7 surgeries.

Thanks sherry....I prefer to start the count from the day of being cancer free, not the day I learned I had cancer.

I have several anniversaries. This past January was my five year anniversary of my mastectomy and tomorrow is the five year anniversary of my final radiation treatment. No treatment in the past five years except Tamoxifen and Zometa/Xgeva. I was diagnosed at stage 4 as I had a single met to sternum. The first year I had chemo, sternum resection and radiation. Best wishes to all you women (and men).
