You have a new normal. When you’re facing a cancer diagnosis and signing all those consents, somewhere in there listed all these side effects. I looked at my consents 5 years after my treatment and one adverse effect listed was death. And there was my signature on the bottom, acknowledging that I knew that it was a possibility even though I never recall seeing it.
So what I tell a lot of cancer survivors is that you’ll most likely never be 100%. Long gone are those days for most people. We put toxic chemicals in our bodies that kill the good cells along with the bad. But, most of the time I am 80%. And guess what? 80% is still “passing.” Life will never be the same, and that’s ok. My cancer diagnosis, treatment, and subsequent cure ended up defining my life but in a good way. Three years after treatment I went to nursing school, and now I’ve been a RN for 3 years and working in Oncology at a top ten cancer center for the last 5 months. I also give speeches encouraging young adults to get check ups and be advocates for themselves and their health. I was 22 when I was diagnosed with Stage IIB Nodular Sclerosing Hodgkin’s Lymphoma with a Pericardial Effusion after 6 months (!) of going to the doctor for a “sinus infection.”
Please feel free to reach out to me at any time, I’m an open book.
