The initial diagnosis triggers a dramatic and sudden shift in everyone’s life. The urgency is to get treated and come out the other side which can trigger a powerful resilience for the individual and their loved ones as everyone pulls together to get through.
We anticipate relief and peacefulness again after the treatment is over. However, the reality can be dramatically different. The psychological journey after treatment can be as, if not more challenging than the treatment itself with no obvious end in sight. The mind is thrown into some chronic emotional knots of fear, terror and sadness that can continue for months and years like a virus that infects the mind.
Everyone struggles with a cancer diagnosis even though that might not be so visible. In order to rediscover life after cancer, it requires us all to find a way through these strong emotions rather than trying to lock them away in a box which tends to make them stronger.
