Congratulations!! You made it through breast cancer surgery and treatment. It’s over. Time to breathe that big sigh of relief, celebrate your survival, and get back to living life.
Through-out the fight, that is the goal we work towards and yet, when we finally reach that goal, many of us discover that we feel quite different from what we or others might expect. Rather than relief and celebration, emotions such as loneliness, anxiety and even depression can prevent us from moving on into both physically and emotionally healthy survivorship. If this is your experience, you are far from alone.
