My prognosis is very good, and I'm 4 weeks out from surgery today. I'm on the mend. I'm feeling good this week but last week I had some emotional upsets and some depression. My best friend and I clashed earlier this week and are not speaking to one another now, which is very upsetting.
I wonder if this is fallout from a cancer diagnosis as well? It's very hard as losing friends is not what I need right now. The basis of our clash is she feels I dodged a bullet and should be happier than I am and resuming my life and not looking for sympathy. It got very harsh. I didn't think I was. But I couldn't help the feelings that bubbled up.
I suspect I should see a counselor and sort all this out and not listen to someone who does love and care for me, but has never been through this.
