Hi, my name is Rose. I am a 26 year old cancer survivor.
I was diagnosed with ALL when I was 18, my world stopped for three years, then I was told I was in remission and to go back to my life. What is life after cancer? I'm still trying to figure that out.
I've been in remission since August 2002, I went through chronic hip pain from 2002 to 2007, until it was finally discovered that the chemo I was given had attacked my joints, cutting off blood circulation in my hip joints, killing the bone and my hips practically crumbled, hence the pain. I then went from double hip surgery. Now that I am over the pain, I'm feeling lost.
I just want people like me to talk to, so I feel like I fit in somewhere, I need to talk to people that can relate to what I've been through. Over these past few years, I've been dealing with depression and alienation because there is nobody around me that can relate.
