Did any of you lose friends due to your cancer? I had an odd experience. Went in for extensive cancer surgery. Had a close friend prior to the surgery. Came out of the surgery and she was no longer a close friend. Will not respond to phone calls or emails. I can think of absolutely nothing that I did to make her do this.
I have been in remission for 20 months and I still feel the need to talk about my experiences with cancer, but I feel as though my friends don't want to hear it about it anymore. (I try not to ever bring it up because of that) I feel as though everyone thinks that the day chemo ended I should have "moved on" and should be "over it." Does anyone else feel that they can't talk to their friends or family?
If you were working when you were diagnosed with cancer, have you returned to your job? Why or why not? Do you ever feel like it just doesn't "fit" anymore?
Anyone get overwhelmed/scared when going to the doctor or hospital? How do you deal with these feelings?
I am almost 4 years out from treatment and I am struggling
with fear. I worry everyday about some sort of cancer returning.
I know others have or are going through the same thing.
Just wondering if anyone can give pointers on taming this fear.
Do you ever feel that those around you dont really care? do you feel alone? I want to talk to someone that is feeling like this.
How do you cope with the weeks/days before you're going to do a scan? I'm simply going mental at the moment, please help! :(
Has anyone out there used mental health therapy during their battle with cancer? If so-how has it helped you?
I'll finish all cancer treatment on Monday. I had six months of chemo and one month of radiation. While I'm excited about finishing treatment, I'm nervous about what comes next. It feels weird that, after 9 months of doctors and treatment and a life that revolved cancer, that pretty soon my life is supposed to go back to normal. I'm kind of struggling with my new normal and returning to work and just dealing with how life works when it no longer revolves around cancer.
I tried searching for this topic in the discussions, but couldn't find anything so I apologize if this has been answered before.
Anyone else have family that won't even speak about or discuss the fact that you had cancer? Or acknowledge any problems or side effects from treatment?
What does everyone think about working during treatment. I'm still going at it, but wonder if I'm just hurting the company by not being able to give 100% all the time.
What are/were some good books that you came across about cancer for supporters? Would appreciate advice if you have any. Cheers.
