I've read here and there that people experience depression post cancer. I'm vowing that not to be me and in doing so I'm hoping to not jinx myself. I have my own philosphy about this... and ran it by my oncologist to see what her take was. So before I begin my rant I want to say that this may not hold true for all patients, our journeys are all different as is our treatment and circumstances. This is about me, my personal journey.
I am not the same.
I'm not the same 5' 9" thin girl from 1985. #Iateherforbreakfast
I wasn't the same at the end of high school, nor college graduation.
I grew up after my first trip to Europe and after my first marriage ended.
I was different after moving away from my hometown.
I was different when I married and had my first child. And my second.
I'm not the same as I was when I started my business 6 years ago and my business is not the same.
So of course I'm not the same after 11 full months of fighting cancer.
And that's ok.
