Some Awareness: What I was not aware of until I went through breast cancer myself – how long it would take to recover (and would I ever really recover): the above post was written 20 months after I was diagnosed. I am re-posting it now because it reminds me of how long recovery took and that 20 months out I was still struggling and fighting. I am now 4 1/2 years out. Back then (November of 2010) I marveled at how far I had come and how far I felt I still needed to go . . . sometimes I still do the same to this day. It is a good thing. I am so very, very grateful today.
