Carly says that when she found out she had breast cancer, it was "hell" for a few hours, but then she rallied her spirit. "I went into it very triumphantly, because that's the way you have to approach it," Carly says.
Carly, who also suffers from depression, says she is in a good place now, but in "about five minutes from now, I could be in the worst place in all get-out." She says depression can come upon her in a "burst," and that she tries not to fight the feelings.
"I try to go all the way into it so I can fulfill that expectancy, so I can get all the way out of it. If you tempt yourself by saying, 'No, no, no, I won't go there,' it won't usually end as fast," Carly says.
