I am a six year survivor of SCC. At the time of diagnosis I was an elementary school teacher working on a Masters in Psychology. Which I did finish. But the cancer prevented me from practicing. Obviously, I need to use my voice for both of these careers. The bad news is, I had to go on disability because my saliva glands do not work and throat bleeds frequently, The docs have done many endoscopy's and found the tumor to be OK, but the blood vessels in my throat rupture depending upon weather conditions and how much I use my voice. I am on a regiment of Fentanayl and Oxycododne daily. I am 49 and find myself to be a non-contributor to society and I am often depressed. I would like to find a career or situation where I can help people that are facing what I have gone through and feel like I am helping and making a difference and contributing to society. Anyone else out here facing these issues and what have you done?? Any help and comments would be appreciated.
