New as of yesterday, so scared

Hey everyone, The nurse at my doc's office gave me this website to check out. I am 26 and was told yesterday I have breast cancer. They won't know what stage it is until surgery, but I have to have a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery probably within the next two weeks. It feels like I've been in the worst nightmare of my life. How do you guys live each day before knowing that cancer is in you? I was scared to go to sleep, to wake up and remember that I have this scary disease that can't go away with some over the counter cold medication. Any thoughts/helpful suggestions for this pretty scared young adult? - Alana
