HI everyone. Im very late to the conversation. What Mary has described is exactly how Im feeling at the moment. Im also feeling very sorry for myself, the first since my diagnosis in November 2016. I struggled at first, not with the diagnosis, but with the treatment plan - double mastectomy. I fought that, as the cancer was only found in one breast, so I had one removed. I have many ups and downs, and as it stands, I am still waiting on a skin graft to create a new nipple, replacing the one I lost. My work hasnt been supportive and I have been off since september last year. Sorry - thats very long! Anyway, I am now trying to find a new job, which is difficult for a 49 year old woman who is recovering from cancer treatment, I have very little energy. My get up and go, has got up and gone. I feel so anxious at times, it takes my breath away! My family, I think, feel I should be back at work now as I am cancer free, but I actually feel worse now than I have ever felt. I think I probably need a kick up the backside. I even joined a gym and have only gone 3 times in a month!
