I just joined. I am looking to speak with other stage 4 breast cancer people. I was diagnosed early in the year denovo and I am on hormone therapy. I go for scans tomorrow and am full of anxiety. I feel foolish for even worrying. The end result is going to be death one way or another, but as I started taking the medication and dealing with the side effects, day to day life went on. I know there is no cure and this can be treated for awhile but no one knows for sure and how do you cope with living with that?

Hi Hope4all
Welcome.  The group of people on this forum who have serious illness is never very large and right now I am not aware of anyone who is posting.  I am wondering if you have heard of Cancer Chat Canada? This might put you more in touch with people who are in similar circumstances to your own.

I wonder if this article might offer you some resources for coping Living with Limited Time: Exploring Feelings    

Do you have family and friends who are able to support you Hope4all? 
I will be thinking of you tomorrow.
Katherine
