Hi Scottydog, sorry you find yourself here with "bert". I was also ER/PR+ HER2- (it's the most common bc, slower growing but stubborn as far as I can gather). I was 48 at diagnosis with a family but at your age and point of view there are more factors to consider so do make sure you look into things like having eggs frozen for example, before chemo, if you are having chemo. I had no family history other than my paternal grandma who developed ER+ breast cancer in her 70s (this isn't considered a family history) and she still lived to age 90 on Tamoxifen alone and it wasn't bc which killed her in the end. Here is some information on fertility for you to have a look at:
I also write a blog which has lots of suggestions on how to cope: lifeafterlola.com
Don't feel you have to stay upbeat all of the time. This is a horrid thing to get through and all emotions are very normal. There's a quote which sums this up nicely: "You'll have good days, bad days, overwhelming days, too tired days, I'm awesome days, I can't go on days. And every day you'll still show up"
Check out the "going through treatment" thread on here so you can chat with others going through the same. I found this really helpful and still keep in touch with my chemo buddies. x
