I have a good excuse to be flaking out on everything for a while

So, I got diagnosed with breast cancer on Wednesday.

No, that’s not the start of some sick joke.

Last week, I found a lump in my breast. They scanned it on Monday and said it looked extremely suspicious, so they did a needle biopsy. The results came in on Wednesday. As of last night, I am Stage III, with more tests to be run.

I’m now in doctor appointment hell. I am being poked, scanned, drawn on, and turned radioactive. So many people have squeezed my boob. SO MANY.

Right now, it looks like this will be a tough fight. Right now, things are dark here. But not as dark as the anger that is fueling my fight. Cancer doesn’t realize who it is fucking with. I will destroy it. I will strangle its babies, drown its pets, and burn its house down.

I will be blogging this, too. I can’t NOT write. But everything is a little raw at the moment, and I’m not ready to share them yet. Also, I’m literally at so many doctor appointments, it’s hard to find the time. So, expect some of my regular post topics for a bit longer.

I don’t say this enough, but I think you guys know just how much you, my readers, mean to me. I love you and I am grateful for you. I hope you’ll stick with me through this ride.

  1. Oh shit and really? I just started reading your blog and have enjoyed your kind of fun, non-judgey mommy perspective.

    And then the big “C”? That just sucks all they way around.

    But, my sister started her breast cancer stuff two years ago and I’m not going to lie, it sucked sometimes, but she is doing so great right now. So, keep writing about “it” and I will be listening and if I can offer any help/comfort I will. You will get thru this and you will beat the “it” – (sorry, it doesn’t even deserve to be called by it’s proper name.)

  2. Well shit, I don’t know how I found your blog but I was finally getting emotionally thru my sister’s breast cancer stuff, stage 2b, triple negative, some serious shit. Chemo, full reconstruction But she is good, cancer free, But you were just a normal mom that wasn’t a judge mom and I related to you.
