    I found my courage
    cancer47 posted:
    Wrote here a few weeks ago about not having the courage to go back and see my doctors since finishing treatment. Rachel said the courage is not any place else than INSIDE myself. How true. This past wednesday I went to the onchologist. Things went fine. Almost "chickened out" a few times on the way there. Ordered a CT of to check and see how things are going and then MRI or petscan at some point. I did not tell anyone except my husband that I was going did not want a bunch of people calling for the "how was it?".
    So thanks for your replies and I hope to continue to find other things "inside" myself.
