I've read several discussions about the emotions of a cancer diagnosis and the roller coaster tide of emotions that accompany fighting it and even beating it. I saw the below article talking about the SHIFT of emotional changes and how it changes you physically and emotionally perhaps FOREVER, quite possibly making you a better person on the other side. Johnny Imerman calls it the Refractory Period. I know dealing with a cancer diagnosis carries with it crazy periods and the weight of questioning your sanity at times.
But more importantly, it supports--what we all know to be true--the importance of groups like this in fighting this battle. Thought you might find it an interesting read and an endorsement of this "kickin it" board.
