It does take awhile to sink in although I think I knew before I was told. The crying came first for me, then the why mes and finally I came up with a plan. Let yourself go through it all and try to let dh "help". He'll want to make it better even though he can't but let him in if you can.
At the very least you can voice your fears, concerns and angers here.....no judgement, no pats on the back - just support.
Thank you all so much for your kind words, it is so nice to know people going through the same thing. Although I wish I knew you girls under happier times.
I guess right now I am getting over the shock of it all, will I ever accept it??? I feel like right now at this point i never will....
I don't think I ever accepted it ... I just tried to figure out what I was going to do if this happened or that happened. I also had to have extensive surgery within a week of my diagnosis (my scar runs from knee to groin on my right inner thigh and they took skin, fat and some muscle as well as 2 lymph nodes in the groin) so recovering from that took me 3 weeks in which I was focused on getting better and dealing with my twins at the same time.
How did I go day to day ...I spent as much time with my kids as possible. I taped myself reading to them. Oh and I cried a lot.....but I don't think I ever accepted it.
