Just saw your reply. You're right, it can be difficult for people going through treatment to coordinate schedules. As I mentioned, I have a couple of friends who are also dealing with breast cancer. It usually takes us a while to just plan for two of us to get together. But it is really nice having someone to talk to who "gets it".
I've finished with most of my active treatment. I still have to complete my reconstruction, and since I had some micromets in one of my lymph nodes, I'll be monitored pretty closely for the next couple of years. But other than that, it's back to my "real" life.
Based on your info, it looks like you were diagnosed stage four right off. I'm so sorry. That's what happened to one of my friends. It's so hard for her since she has a three year old son. This disease sucks.
You can private message me if you'd like. You'll have to add me to your friends' list first.
