    Depressed…?

    Depressed…?

    Naps and cake. That is all. Seriously though, if you even think you’re depressed, talk to someone. If you have no one (their loss, obviously), then: Text NAMI to 741-741(trained crisis counselor available 24/7), or Call 1-800-950-NAMI (NAMI HelpLine Monday through Friday, 10 am–6 pm, ET), or Email info@nami.org

My favorite podcast!

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had so much anxiety from the unknown. Breast cancer is unique due to the amount of time spent and all of the various treatments. It’s completely overwhelming! I am so glad I found your podcast! I love the reality and humor. No one gives you the straight answers like you do. I am a nurse also and can identify with the girls in this podcast so much. Thank you for the list of supplies for chemo, care products, etc. It has made this so much more tolerable. I feel prepared and a little more in control. I find myself laughing so hard some days which is rare during this time in my life.

I’m so glad I found this podcast!!!!!!!

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer April 2016. The last year had been so very rough. Yes I’m alive and so far so good, but the depression and what I believe is PTSD has been overwhelming. I was in tears the first day I listened to your podcast. I’m not the only one angry, sad, hating my boobs after reconstruction, missing my old self, missing the closeness of my husband. I am not alone!!!! Thank you!!! You may have saved me. Keep up the good work. Love you badasses.

Witty, real

I was diagnosed with breast cancer last month and this podcast has given me such insight about the raw reality about my upcoming battle. It’s the one thing that makes me laugh and cry at the same time. Thank you girls for putting yourself out there and sharing your stories. I’d love to hear more about timelines of chemo, radiation treatment, and reconstruction.
