Hi, first time posting.
I was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer in Dec 2017. I’ve had bowel, liver and lung surgery and 6 months of chemo. My last chemo was in October 2018.
I’m now trying to get back to normal but am really struggling. I’m more emotional now than I was last year with all the various treatments. I feel like i’m getting depressed...I’ve been on antidepressants before and don’t want to go there as it changed my personality and looking back really wasn’t myself on them.
Thinking I need to go back to work but am a bit afraid and sometimes I just don’t want to go back to work at all. Just wondering if there is anyone else out there who may have or have had similar feelings and hoping for some tips.
Good morning @BoCo,
How are you doing today?
It's completely understandable that you're more emotional now. We have a great book on emotions and cancer that might be worth a read.
Regarding your apprehension around returning to work, I am going to recommend you take a look at these two webinars...
Has anyone else had any experience with difficulty around returning to work?
Hi Katekat, thankyou for your reply and your tips. I haven’t been able to view the webcasts but I’ll keep trying. Really appreciate your comments. Going ok at the moment, good days and bad days 😉
