I am Lisa, 46 and my wife is Tina 42. We are both bi though happily married. Been together 17 years and married legal in 2013. We have three grown kids. We have my family support and her little family of her parents and 1 sister...sister is NOT supportive of us.

I had DCIS in 2011 and had lump/rads and one yr of tamoxifen ( didnt tolerate it so stopped). Im (yet again) considering a MX/reconstruction due to my high anxiety over tests every 6 months (had a papilloma last year in good breast), the dent and hardened rads tissue i was left with that left righty deflated, and my worry over reccurences. I would like to do a unimx/implant on righty and then a lift/implant on lefty. I would love to find out if there are other bi women here to chat with for support. I didnt want to intrude/impose on the lesbian threads. We have no real "community" connections as we live in a rural area.
