Thank you ladies! All your responses are helpful knowing that I am not alone in my struggle. Like I said, all the people I know with BC are stage 0 or 1 and when I say I was Stage 2 - their eyes get wide and I hear them suck in their breath. Well - maybe that is an exxageration but that is how it feels.
Grandma3x - I have been thinking maybe I need therapy or a support group of some kind. I have tried yoga and not sure that it's for me. Maybe i should give it another go or try a different class.
I think my worry and anxiety comes and goes. Sometimes I don't think about it at all and other times I seem to be obsessed with BC thoughts. My husband told me "you are cancer free until someone tells you otherwise" and I remind myself of that daily.
I wonder if Tamoxifen has contributed to my mood. I just don't feel that happy feeling much anymore. And I should - I have a great life - husband, kids, job, etc. I am really blessed in so many aspects in life. I just feel blah.
This too shall pass as they say. I am a teacher and school starts Tuesday. Maybe it will be a good distraction and get my mind on other things.
Thanks again ladies! We are all BC Warriors - not survivors - I don't like that word. Sounds too weak. I like Warriors better.
