I've been a member for a few weeks, but this is my first post.
I'm 32 & was diagnosed with an Immature teratoma, Germ Cell OC back in March & hav not long completed BEP chemotherapy (4 weeks ago).
Since it finished, especially the last week, I've felt so lost & alone. I don't have anyone to speak to who has been through the same diagnosis / treatment, as it's so rare in women & I was the only female being treated for it at my hospital.
I've tried speaking to people about how I feel, & all I get is "Och, you'll be back to your old self if a few weeks. You've been through a rough time recently. Give yourself time to recover"
1) I know better than anyone what I've been through
2) why aren't you actually listening to what I'm saying?
Things with my husband are the worst. Did anyone else feel as though their partner just didn't "get them?" I'm constantly in a state of anxiety because I don't know if I'm coming or going with him. i know he's been going through the mill too, watching me at my lowest, but it's as though, now the chemo's done....,no-one cares.
That's probably unfair of me to say, but that's how I feel. I just don't have anyone I can really talk to that understands what is going on in my head.
