So last year in June I was diagnosed with CANCER. I had surgery in October to remove the cancer. And as of today I'm still cancer-free. But that's not the end of the journey.....that's sort of where the Journey Begins. Life after cancer. And all the hardships that come with it. Anxiety, depression, worried if you're going to be able to pay the bills cause they're stacking up and you've been off work. And my wife....bless her Heart! I love her so much! She can't do it all by herself. It takes 2 incomes to run a household in today's economy!
So that brings me to this....it's been awhile since I've posted about my medical situation. There's a reason for that. I've had complications after my surgery. My wound has not healed properly....as a result of that I've had to stop physical therapy and focus on wound care. I've been off work for 4 months now and it's eaten my savings to the point that its gone. Stress, desperation, helpless, depressed....these are just a few of the things I have been feeling lately. Not sure where to turn at this point. I'm going back to work....but its been real slow.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is....when you have cancer, that becomes your main focus. But its the things that come after diagnosis, treatment and beating it. It's the recovery, the ups and downs of it. The wondering if you're gonna survive....mentally and physically!
I'm pretty much bearing my soul looking for answers. I'm embarrassed to even bring it up. But when you get backed into a corner.....you are left with two choices....curl up in a ball or fight your way out of it. I choose to fight....who will fight with me?
So if you can help at all my family and I would be forever grateful.
Thanks for listening.
