I know you didn't mean to upset me. I'm just scared in general and ultra sensitive about everything right now. I can't talk to anyone about it face to face without falling apart. I've never been one to cry over every little thing, so it is very embarassing. It has been a frustrating week. Still haven't had any word on the reschedule for my liver biopsy. This is troubling since I am scheduled to start chemo on Tuesday. Had the port placed on Wednesday. When I came out of anesthesia, I just started crying. Wasn't in pain or thinking about anything in particular. It is horrible feeling so out of control of my life. My sister is due to arrive tomorrow and I am hoping that will help. We're planning to just try and have some fun this weekend before having to dive into all the crap next week. Just trying to get by one day at time right now. Thanks for the support.

It's harder for colon cancer patients because so many people assume it must relate to our lifestyle. Those "how to prevent colon cancer" seminars seem to make matters worse (although they are very helpful for those who DO need to change their eating/exercise habits).
