This is my first post here, so be gentle!
In May, 2011 i was diagnosed with Stage III DLCBL. I am almost 2 years out from being told that I am in remission.
I had 6 rounds of R-CHOP chemo - and while u survived, I'm wondering at this point at what cost?
I wake up tired, stumble through the day, STILL have numbness in my feet that makes it feel like I'm walking in mud all the time.
Basically, I'm sick and tired of waiting to feel better. My doctor has given me Provigil, so that does help with the concentration and staying awake at work, but he says there is no reason for me to still be so tired all the time.
I have to wonder if it's because I'm under so much stress financially that it's weighing on me. The credit card companies could care less what I've gone through - they just want to be paid. I am slowly getting things caught up - but in the meantime my credit rating went right down the crapper.
For 11 years before I was diagnosed, I worked a full time job, as well as a part time job. Heck, before I was diagnosed, I didn't even know I had I cancer, other than the knot I got on my neck. Felt fine and was RARING to go.
So I guess I have 2 questions:
WHEN will I start feeling better?
is there or are there any laws to help people when they've just had the battle of their life - to protect them from the credit companies and banks eating them up with late fees and APRs that continually go up!
i want to fulfill my obligations, but they're making it SO HARD to do.
Thanks for your time.
