Newbie here! Just having a rough night and ran across your site. Thought I would give it a try. I was diagnosed with DCIS in July 2015, had partial mastectomy in Sept, found out it was more than they thought, had bilateral mastectomy in November. Nearly the end of reconstruction and the 3 month wait to switch out to implants. I have barely cried during any of this, but for some reason am an emotional mess lately. I find myself angry when people tell me how "lucky" I am. I get it. I am truly blessed that it is gone, that it did not spread, that I was spared chemo and radiation (radiation was original plan but it had spread too far). I am fearful now when I really wasn't before. I treated this like it was a really bad cold...was just going to beat it and be done with it. now I am worried it will come back. I am happy, sad, fearful, angry, etc. It was like my emotions were suspended and now I am feeling everything all at once. Anyone out there can relate?? I am a hot mess lately.
