Hello and Hugs to All, this is msphil, I just wanted to say to you ALL that I realized that part of my journey down to this earth was to experience breast cancer so that I could become a Survivor so as to passs on HOPE and Inspiration to those coming after me, to feel the Love and Compassion that We so very much need during this difficult time in our lives, the Holy Spirit led me to this site as I googled breast cancer support, and I was also led to write the book to show that Our lives will indeed change But with HOPE and Positive thinking we can make it thru. I want to make it clear that I now see why We must go through, So we can help others behind Us. The book I was led to write, is called , "The Healings Of Breast Cancer, A Physical and Spiritual Healing Of My Body And Soul. Each word of this was given to me, especially the title, because after the treatment  my soul was and is healed unlike before the diagnosis, I was searching for my PURPOSE, even ask my mother(Bless her) what she thought it was. I always felt (empty) till now.  God Bless Us All. ps book is on amazon.com and barnes and noble and from my publisher (Xlibris.com) I pray you have or will find your purpose in this and after your treatments as have I.  msphil(idc,stage 2,0/3 nodes, Lmast, chemo and rads and 5 yrs on Tamoxifen) and all while planning my wedding to the angel God had sent to be with me,my husband Dwight(God Bless him)

msphil - I too consider it part of my journey, although I must admit at times I feel like the statement Mother Theresa made - I know God won't give me more than I could handle, I just wish He didn't trust me so much. :-) But I am learning, as the old hymn goes, to lean on Jesus and finding more power than I ever knew...

msphil - I am the "strong one" in my family, too. :-) I've buried my parents and my brother; all too early. My mom used to insist my husband was in denial during his CA because he went straight to acceptance. :-) He just trusted and God came through. It's been almost 30 years now. I said once on here that I never asked why me. I just figured why not me. I mentioned that here once and got some flack for saying it, but I stand by it. I just believe that God will not allow more to come upon me than I an handle and He won't leave me. Ever. :-)

Mini1, I so agree with you. Like your husband, I went to acceptance almost from the beginning. My thinking was that I was not going to waste my precious energy on feeling sorry for myself and being the victim. Why not me? I'm not more special than anybody else, and other women get diagnosed all the time! My decision was to take charge, to do what it takes, to control the only thing I can (my attitude, of course), and to leave the rest up to God. It is not in our hands. What does not make sense to us, makes perfect sense to Him. That is good enough for me.

Msphil, congrats on the book. You are a true inspiration who give hope to us all!
