After Treatment “The Head Game”
- This is probably as difficult a time, mentally and emotionally, as when you were initially diagnosed. This takes you off guard because you think your life can go back to normal as soon as active treatment ends. Your adrenaline has been keeping you going through treatment- and now it just stops. Just know that there will be an adjustment period and you may have feelings of depression, loneliness, self-image issues and a feeling of being lost without seeing medical professionals all the time.
