I have been clean from prostate cancer for 9 months now but I find that I still suffer from depression. Most days I hate life even though I have some good things going on in my life. The purpose of this post is two-fold--I want to see if others have the same problem and what the have done to get over it, and the second reason is just to have a chance to whine about the depression and get it off my chest.
I resent the cancer for robbing me of so many things like my self confidence, my ability to work, I have trouble concentrating and memory problems so I have had to quit going to school. I also have lost my motivation to do anything. All I want to do is sit around and do nothing.
What have others done to get over their depression? That is my question. I have been seeing a counselor for the past two years but that doesn't do a lot of good so I figure the best people to ask are the one who have had the same issues that I have.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
