" ( https://www.cancer.net/survivorship/what-cancer-survivorship ) Having going through this journey, been ups and downs. shock to hear diagnosis, maybe your oncologist could give you prognosis... Going through treatments are very challenging. Wether chemo, radio, immuno therapy... or even clinical trials... Time we spend in hospitals increase, those appointments start dominate life, our life plans on hold and plans are now around appointments. It's a full-time work... Mentally, emotionally and physically draining. Often people say " keep positive!" How can I stay positive if they know how I'm feeling? If you are reading this, you might feel like that too.
