This post is right on the money and tells a parallel experience to where life has taken me as a 5 year survivor. I've had the dread, got the scars, had the epiphany that life is here to live. None of this is easy, asking for help and going beyond the expertise of my oncologist,seeing a psychiatrist and letting go of some of my pride and ego around that issue has been beneficial.

I'm still prone to a bad day here or there but they come much less often, I'll allow myself that for now but still have a goal of making everyday a good day. Easier said than done as I'm in the midst of a battle with lung mets and on chemo (Folfirinox) right now. But the good days are really good, and for the most part I need to help create them by prying my butt out of the recliner and getting out to live life. Believe it or not when I'm with a friend or with family the cancer goes away for the most part and I'm just plain ol Jonathan, that's a good thing, a reprieve of sorts.
