5 years cancer free!

Smitty65 Member Posts: 12

I have not been on this forum for years but I remember how great it felt when I saw somebody else had conquered this disease. This is not a death sentence.

Don't get me wrong I still get the scanxiety and I sometimes fall into the trap of over-analyzing every little pain but 99% of the time I enjoy every little part of life. 

Remember no matter where you're at in your journey there are people who can help. I suffered some pretty severe depression and anxiety in the year following my diagnosis. It wasn't until I saw a psychiatrist and got on some meds that my life returned normal. You don't have to suffer in silence.


Thank you to all of you who post on here regularly with positive words and Good Vibes. Not everyone who comes here feels comfortable enough to post but there are plenty of people who get affirmation from reading peoples stories. I'm praying for you all good luck!

    Smitty--thanks for "dropping in" and spreading the news.  We all need a little boost once in a while, and you certainly did just that for me.  I hope you drop in more often to share your wisdom.
