In May 2011 I was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma. Through the whole process of my treatments and diagnosis I was very private about what was going on. Only family and close friends know. This last September I had a very invasive surgery that has left huge scars on my stomach BUT I am cancer free so it was worth it! My issue is I see other people feeling so empowered about fighting/beating cancer. But for some reason to me I almost feel ashamed... I know it doesn't make sense! I guess I wa wondering if I was the only survivor that felt this way?? And how do I overcome it? I got my butt kicked during treatment but I stuck it out and beat it!! I know that is so amazing and I just want to feel empowered and strong...
