New to SharingOurDays -- Richard French (Cancer)

Richard is a teacher in England who does a great job of telling us about his treatment and pretty much every aspect of his life. It is a very active blog with lots of pictures. Pretty cool.

Here is an excerpt from December 28, 2006:

Day 93 [C1D14] - Flat, Tired & Soooo Unmotivated
Thurs 28th - Healthy So Far

The really good news is that 14 days in to the first cycle and so far, as far as I'm aware, I haven't experiencd any major side-effects to the chemo. There are niggling minor side-effects such as nausea and occassional vomitting (hope you're not eating your breakfast!), and the infamous metallic taste and feel, oh and aching feet and limbs. The biggest impact, however, seems to have been to wipe me out of any motivation for anything, I'm assuming that this is part fatigue and part psychological.

Since last Wednesday I've felt incredibly flat, there seems to be no fuel for any form of enthusiasm or motivation, from eating through to Christmas. Of course there is the outside possibility that this isn't to do with the treatment at all and that in fact I've simply, and finally, evolved in a to a super couch potato!!!!

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
