Thanks again to Scorchy @ Journeying Beyond Breast Cancer for reblogging this so I saw it!
Oh my yes, yes, and so much yes!
Some of my favorite parts:
– …less willing to be tolerant of what we may have put up with before cancer.
– …changes in the way you eat…
– …reappraise . . . our family relationships and friendships.
Thanks for reblogging my post on what happens after cancer treatment ends. I love the many different responses from readers – it just goes to show how varied our experiences are when it comes to cancer – there is no one size fits all!
This was a pretty interesting discussion wasn’t it? I dislike the term “new normal” for a lot reasons, but having said that, one does have to pick up the pieces and figure out how to carry on after a diagnosis, when treatment ends and even if you’ll be in treatment for the rest of your life as a stage IV patient.
