I'm a Survivor
Five years ago I was embarrassed to say that. Now, I know what everyone who has survived breast cancer means. Loss of feeling in my upper right arm and shoulder, lingering pain at the site, fear of the cancer returning... the list goes on and on. You really don't realize what a toll it takes on your psyche either. All of this lessens by year five, so, yeah, I'm a survivor!
