Hi I am newly diagnosed and I know alot of people rely on their faith for support and find great peace with that, however I am a atheist and was wondering if anyone else here was also.

thanks

Shelby--what a terrific question...and the responses--I can't add to what anyone else has said...guess I put myself in the agnostic group.   I had a lot of things I wanted to say, but I'm really wordy--so, will just say, "What a nice, refreshing breeze you created!

Best wishes to you!!!

Shelby - I'm not, but I have absolutely nothing but respect for you. To know yourself and to be honest about it is wonderful. What I believe or don't believe hasn't had much of an affect on how I dealt with BC. In fact, Dotti (iodine) sounds like a kindred spirit as I approach things in much the same way. An abundance of faith or a lack thereof makes no difference; BC is an equal-opportunity bastard. Trust in the talent and ability of the doctors to pull you through.

LOL at your biopsy. I once had a manager suggest we join hands in prayer before a difficult contract negotiation. I threw up a little in my mouth at that one.

I am so proud to be part of a group of wonderful, open minded women who are living what this country is all about.  You can have your own private ideas, speak of them, and not be persecuted, looked down upon or upset in any way.  This is what they taught us in Kindergarten, and I get upset sometimes when I run across people who just are not happy unless everyone agrees with them.

AND I like being able to bounce these ideas off of each other.  Nothing takes the place of honest diaglogue, especially at times like this when we are facing a serious illness.

I am proud to be on this site with all of you.

Gentle hugs, Shirlann

I find your post close to insulting,  of course you have a right to your own opinion and I respect that.  I have stated I do not have a problem with other peoples beliefs however when they simply disregard my own feelings, it shows to me they really do not care about my own.  You state "I hope you understand", I also hope you understand.  I am in no way wanting to start a stink, I have enough on my plate today, just didn't expect to find this here.
