Emotional issues

Cancer can be emotionally draining, but sharing your feelings can help you and others in your situation. Talk about it here.

Anger at my body and loss of independence

Who else is furious with their body? Who else just wants to get their body and life back to how it used to be?

Hi

Welcome to the online community. So very glad you’ve found us but so very sorry that you find yourself here. 

I can totally relate to the feelings you are having. I had no significant signs of being ill with cancer and it was found by accident really. The feeling that my body had betrayed me was overwhelming at the start. If so much was going on inside, how could I not know? 

I don’t know where I am with that right now as I try not to think about it too much anymore. It is true though that my body is forever changed and the life I am living is a new normal. I take days moment by moment and day by day and accept that some days will be better than others. I think about how far I’ve come to get to this point and hope that I will continue to make progress as time goes on  

Wanting things to go back to how they were is understandable and accepting that things are different and may not be the same again is really difficult. 

Don't be hard on yourself. You are allowed to feel that way. Things I am sure will improve and talking to others will hopefully help. 

Sending you the very best wishes and a big hug.
