Hi Greensmythe, I know it's tough. I remember my last time being diagnosed, it was my third time. I was diagnosed in Oct., then couldn't see the oncologist until Dec. I was in a serious funk, went shopping with my Wife and her Sister and all I could see was all the people walking around all happy without a care in the world. Made me mad, got depressed. But as the Holiday's went on, I started feeling lucky to be here, and started looking positive.
Here is one of our recent blogs on this very subject, it doesn't answer all the questions, but it's a start, and I'm sure some of our great Members here will have some input for you.
Hope you get to feeling better about it.
