Hi I am Ana.
I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer about a year ago. I have undergone Chemo, Surgery (mastectomy) Radiation and now Hormone Therapy. I have been a Warrior thought out this entire ordeal, until now. I started watching a series on Netflix "From Scratch" about a couple and their struggles with his cancer. I didn't realize it was a cancer story until too late.. I had to stop watching it! I could identify with some of the emotions they were going through when his cancer came back after 7 years. For some reason I could not stop thinking about my own mortality and could not sleep. I am usually pretty strong and can deal with what ever comes, I was doing well. Now I feel scared and sort of hopeless. Is this normal? Am I going through some sort of emotional breakdown? If anyone has any suggestions that can help me cope and get my hope back I would really appreciate it.
