You know, I luv ya. Despite everything you have gone through these last couple years, you hang in there. I had to smile reading your post; yeah, a scar on your neck sucks. But it means that the dr. finally found the reason you are so ill. So think of the scar as a battle wound - a battle you can start winning!! I'm just sorry that no-one figured out what you have until now.
You are an amazing person - look back - you already made it through so much that handling this treatment is going to be easy for you. Not easy physically, but mentally. You know how to react. You know how your body reacts to all the chemical cocktails you have to take. And you are strong. You have made it this far, you will survive and go on.
I can't really express in writing how happy I am that you finally have a real diagnosis. I was ready to put you on "Diagnosis Unknown" - you're the perfect candidate.
Take care of you and all the best for the upcoming appts and treatments.
Live like there's no tomorrow. Love like you've never loved before.
