Breast cancer


Just been diagnosed with breast cancer. All a bit overwhelming. Get my treatment plan on Monday. Sick of telling people that I have it. Its exhausting. Anyone got any helpful hints or tips? Already been told that underwire bras are a no no. Already been told to take a notebook to every meeting so I can look back on what was said. Already been told to have really soft comfortable clothing. These are all great things but what do you all do to Just cope with this diagnosis. I'm still in shock. Only found out Tuesday.
