scanxiety

Postby sbrainbolt » Fri Aug 23, 2013 1:06 pm

My one year scans since finishing chemo are in 3 weeks. Kind of freaking out depending on the moment. Trying to stay calm and positive because none of us change anything by worrying about it, but it is so freaking hard to put aside. :roll:

Just venting.
