I think i'm a bit further down the line than some of you. two years post diagnosis and currently NED, just had reconstruction (will need some attention at a later date but can't just face it at the moment). I have found Mindfulness, attending Penny Brohn Centre, Reiki at a local cancer care centre all very helpful in channelling my thoughts / feelings but do think i'll need some Psychological input before too long. I am not the person i was before, some good things from that some bad but i am trying to adjust to the new normal......I'm not sure if its anger i feel but i am certainly irritated. One person said this morning 'you are definately looking a lot better these days' (this is somebody who told me i looked great and was doing really well during Chemo - i looked shocking during Chemo and felt just as bad). I find this kind of nonsense irritating really.........i suppose i've never really had a lot of time for dishonesty..........
I do hope my experience has taught me a few things about how to talk appropriately to anybody going through treatment in future.
