Thanks for the book suggestion I've just bought this on my kindle it looks helpful.
i was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer last year aged 33, have successfully completed all of my treatments, chemo, surgery annd radiotherapy, this year and came through it relatively strong. Now 4 months after completing treatment i am really struggling to cope with what happened and that my life has changed.
People don’t seem to understand why i am not ‘just putting it behind me’ or ‘moving on’ or ‘not getting back to NORMAL’ what is normal now???
i feel like i am supposed to just snap back into the person i was before cancer, that people dont want to talk about it anymore. I have had family members call me an attention seeker for still talking about my cancer. This just makes things worse for me and i am really struggling to cope.
Has anyone else struggled after completing treatment?
