I am new to this and I suppose I have taken to this forum in the hope that I am not alone in the way I am feeling.
I was given the ‘all clear’ in September and in the first instance there was the obvious pure joy and celebrations that the treatment has done it’s job however in recent weeks I have felt completely lost… I am 27 am due to the treatment I am now unable to have children and I am also not it a relationship so I am kind of feeling a lack of purpose to my life right now… it’s like the cancer stage is over so now what do I do?!?
I have a wonderful job and a lovely house, great family and friends so really I shouldn’t be feeling this way… but I feel now that I am wasting my life as I have gone back to exactly the same life I was living before diagnosis. I feel like I should be going off on some big adventure and making the most of my time, but then also tied to where I am as I can’t go far due to the ongoing hospital appointments.
Has anyone else felt like this? is it just a phase that will pass?
Sorry for the rambling!
