I have attended a support group for young women with cancer which runs once a month. I go so I can find other people who have gone through some of the same things as me. I'm looking for some kinship and understanding without having to always say the words "cancer sucks". I'm looking for someone who has similar life issues and/or a similar mind set.
This sense of being out there alone hasn't been shaken yet. Despite that, I've found I have made great headway online. I have met amazing people here from all over the globe. Even though I have not met them in the flesh, I feel like they are in my court and have stood by my side at many moments.
Tonight I spoke to Kelly on the phone and yakked for a loooong time. I'm sure if Skully and Kelly were down the road we could have tea or martinis or whatever. That would rock.
I could list many others on here whom I love to hear from (everbody!). A few I know, one I've met and hope to see again, and others I hope to meet in person. You guys kick ass.
