Hi all 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?

Hello i was diagnosed in 2016 aged 33. I have finished treatment now, chemo, surgery and radiotherapy. I struggled with not being able to find anyone my age or in a similar life position to me, single and no children. The treatment is tough going yes but i was surprised how quickly i started to recover after chemo finished. I used cold cap and kept most of my hair, it’s definitely hard work but worth it in the long run. Hope all of your treatment is goung well so far x
