I was diagnosed with AML Leukemia on my 13th birthday. That was almost 9 years ago now. I am currently working on my master's thesis in English on my cancer experiences. I experienced a kind of regression while I was in the hospital, I only wanted to watch little kid shows, and color, and paint, and do arts and crafts projects, like I didn't want to think about anything grown up. I am wondering if anyone has experienced the same phenomenon, or if anyone has read about this, or knows where I can find information about regression in cancer patients, especially demonstrated through writing, artwork or anything of that nature.
