I joined ovacone last year when first diagnosed with stage 3b OC.
I had a lot of support from you lovely ladies but eventually just found I couldn't stay. I'm not sure why. Maybe a reluctance to accept what has happening. I shut myself off to any support. I couldn't read or watch anything to do with cancer. My experience with NHS and staff has not been positive. I have 3 friends with stage 4 cancer and just found it all too much.
I have now recovered from surgery. Finished chemo. Had my first 3 month check up which was positive and I'm now back at work full time.
I have re joined this forum and have been reading all your posts.
You are all so amazingly positive.
I admire each and everyone of you.
I'm just finding it so hard to move on.
What are all your coping mechanisms ?
My father died 4 weeks ago from misdiagnosed lung cancer. 7 weeks from diagnosis to the day he passed away.
I'm struggling to feel any positivity.
I don't mean to bring so much doom and gloom.
My life is a good one. I have a beautiful family. Fantastic friends. Supportive work environment.
I just need to find the joy of life again.
