My life is starting to calm, but the calmer it's getting the harder it is to process my thoughts enough to share them. I began radiation last week and so far so good. I wasn't sure how I would feel about having to go to the doctor every single day, but I find myself looking forward to the visits. I've found some comfort in being there, in a room full of people going through something very similar to what I'm going through. It's a much more intimate setting than chemo was. Everyone is very open to what they are going through and sharing their experiences. Until recently, I haven't felt the need to get involved in support groups because I've had so much support from all my family and friends. I didn't really think it was necessary. But, I realize now the support you get from people who are or who have gone through this fight is a very different kind of support.

My life seems to slowly be getting back to normal. My hair is growing back (I may even have a cute pixie cut in the next couple of weeks), I'm getting some more energy and my body isn't giving out like it had been. I am feeling more like myself every day. It feels really good. :)
