Hi Mary and a very warm welcome to the online community although I'm sorry that you've had to find us

I'm neither as young as you or had breast cancer but I do understand how you feel. You might like to join the breast cancer group where you can talk to others who have had breast cancer and now finished their treatment.

To join just click on the link I've created and then choose 'join this group' on the page that opens. You can then introduce yourself or post a question after selecting 'start a discussion' and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.

When you have a minute it would be really useful if could pop something about your journey so far into your profile as it helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Edit Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
