Hello everyone, new to this having avoided exploring any sort of emotional support for a year and trying to convince myself there's nothing to be sad about any more.
I was diagnosed with Grade 2 Stage 2 ER+ breast cancer a year ago this Thursday. I had surgery in October, two rounds of egg freezing and then radiotherapy. I am now having hormone therapy and will be having this for 5 years. Since I finished radiotherapy in January, everyone has treated me as if it's all fine now. I've managed to convince myself that all is fine. Until this time a week ago, when out of nowhere came in overwhelming sense of sadness, guilt and just what feels like a totally unreasonable emotional wave.
I'm not sure how to cope with it, I'm not sure why it's happening, I'm not sure how to move forward. Is this delayed grief? PTSD?
Any and all thoughts welcome. Thank you all. X
