The Amazing People I've Met

The gift I've received is...: 
I've met many amazing, supportive people as a result of my hospitalization.
The story behind this gift is...: 

Sarah, Kristen, Sara, Lee Ann, Lockey and others at Overlook Hospital have held me up in a way I never expected.  I have a support system which I had no idea existed the day before my mastectomy.  It's a miracle gift to find such support for both the cancer issues and other life issues. 

The loss corresponding to my gift is...: 
Some people don't get it.
The story behind this loss is...: 

I am scared of getting cancer again in the future.  I am scared to go through it all again.  I had a mammogram in January this year, which was awful both due to my emotions (in reliving what I went through the first time) and because the tech was an ignorant idiot (at a different facility).  Not everyone you meet is supportive and they can inflict incredible pain.
