I'm hoping there isn't another thread like this. I did a search and saw one for stage 4, but nothing for everyone else. My very special friend on BCO (Tomboy), and I have talked about a Crazy Town thread for awhile now. I know she will be happy I finally took the bull by the horns!!

I wrote a little story about visiting Crazy Town last year on my blog, and I received some lovely emails from women all over the world talking about how terrifying those feelings can become. I thought I would share that story with my BCO sisters. I know many of you can relate to the craziness of worrying about recurrence or progression. I think my experience epitomizes the crazy place our minds can go. I've found when I can laugh at myself, I always feel better.

"My master bath has its own little room for the toilet. The sink, shower and tub are all in the same room. At night when I have to use the bathroom, I always turn on the closet light which is right next to my sink. This way I don't have to turn on all the lights above the sink. They are very bright and there are a lot of them. I do this so the brightness doesn't wake up my DH. Being the OCD person I am, I always wash my hands after using the restroom – even in the middle of the night.

One night last week, I was doing my usual ritual and I caught a glimpse of a big blackish/brown mark on the upper left side of my chest.This thing was huge. I could feel my heart beating out of my chest when I caught a glimpse of it. I'm sure many of you will know what I'm talking about - that feeling of dread.I ran my fingers over it and it felt raised. I couldn't imagine what it could be – it was SO big. I thought, "Oh great, here we go again, now I've got skin cancer." Then I decided to risk waking DH up by turning on the millions of lights above the sink. Then I got a closer look. UNBELIEVABLE!!……it was a piece of chocolate from a cookie I had eaten earlier!!!!! Apparently it had melted into my chest and I went to bed that way. Can you imagine?? Now if that doesn't give you a good laugh, I don't know what will. CRAZY TOWN!!!"

I have many stories since diagnosis. I call it going to Crazy Town. Some of them are funny, others not so much. I usually go there in the middle of the night when everyone is sleeping, and my mind wanders. There are no trains, planes or busses out of Crazy Town in the middle of the night. I also go there at times when I'm waiting on test results. I hope we can all share our Crazy Town stories. Talking about it has helped me to stay on the outskirts of the town. I've been really good about not visiting lately, but this week it's been a real challenge.

If you have tests coming up, or you just have a day where you're worried more than usual, or if you just want to hang out and chat, please stop in to visit. It is my hope we can have some fun here and get each other through on difficult days with humor, kindness and hugs!!

Much love to all,

Beppy ツ

P.S. If you've just been diagnosed, I strongly suggest starting a blog. Whether it be just for yourself, or you'd like to share it with others. It's been a good outlet to get my feelings out as well as a wonderful timeline to refer back to when needed.

Molly: in sympathy about the depression! It's something I struggle with as well.

As for my Further Progress in Education, i'll make a case for a double major: Computer Science-Networking and Business, Computer Information Systems. There's a five-class overlap between the 'Networking" Comp.Sci. degree and the soon-to-be revamped "Computer Information Systems" track--that's a third of the requirements for the former, if the college allows me to place out of their general education requirements. (They will. i'll be firm with Mr. Business Advisor and Mr. Comp.Sci. Advisor.) I've already taken two in the Comp.Sci. sequence of my own free will. So so that's pretty much halfway there.

Not that I'm excited about this or anything.

Ducky, great picture!

Iris, yay a new car! I told DH last week I want to sell my horse trailer and get me a new SUV. He said he wished he'd known that before he bought a new motorcycle. I told him I'll just take the bike! lol

Lucy and Octogirl, your buddies are so cute! I have a buddy that I take with me everywhere I go too! He's not a bear but he'll be going with me on our trip next year. My DH got him for me when I went through a major depression episode 30 years ago. He's gone with me for every surgery I've had in the past 30 years. He's seen better days and his head is in a weird position from the way I lovingly stash him under my left arm for comfort.

This is my buddy Elliott from Pete's Dragon.


Lucy, I've started to get our plans organized. DH didn't bat an eye when I told him how much the plane tickets will cost. He said it's just a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of all of my medical bills in the past year. Thank God we have great insurance! I need to find another place other than Figi to stop at. That's still a very long plane ride Any suggestions? I should have paid more attention in Geography class. I've decided Paris is out of the running, to many terrorist attacks there lately 😥

Lori, don't know which way you will travel to get to Australia, but if I were already stopping at Fiji, I'd consider going through LAX and stopping also in New Zealand (and AIr New Zealand flies out of LAX and I've had good experiences with them, we will see how the next time goes. ) I haven't been to Tahiti, but it is expensive (more expensive than Hawaii I think) and the nice places are (I think) an additional puddle jump airplane ride. New Zealand is very different than Australia, much more so than I imagined it would be, so it is an interesting contrast. Many places there reminded me of some of the most beautiful spots in California, but with a lot less people. Of course, it is only just under four hours to Brisbane from Auckland.

So many places to see...

I am stressed, but believe it just means the right home is still waiting to be found.

Molly ..That is serious food porn !!! It looks wonderful...

Lori ..Octo's idea of having a stop over in New Zealand is a great idea ..Like she says , New Zealand is totally different from Australia , so it could be a good chance experience it on the way as well .and break your trip ...I've only been to New Zealand's South Island , but it is very beautiful .....

Octo ..I have never heard the expression "puddle jump " before ..but I love it .!!!
