      Yes that's pretty much it. When I went on leave I was doing computer work, and after I come back even after the doctor said I shouldn't work in heat they give me a job I've never done before in a warehouse that is very hot. I live in Houston Texas and summers here get 100 +. Like I said HR is giving me a hard time because I miss work and I've been telling them for a year it the environment and work they don't care. I guess I need to contact the EEOC. thanks.

      I wish you well. I'm not sure if it was your idea to get off disability. There are many young, healthy people on there, so I think you should qualify.

      I hate you are having these problems. Sounds like your employers are not very sympathetic to your situation. I can understand their perspective on the situation. If they can put you back in your previous position...sounds like things may improve for you. As others have said...have your doctor get involved....it may help. Good luck and blessings.

      Before I finished chemo, they told me I would have to find a "new normal" when I finished treatment. I was like whaaaat? Now I get it. I am probably about 95% myself. I still get very stiff ( I am 3.5 years out from my last treatment) I do yoga daily, and I tire more easily. My endurance doesn't seem to be the same.

      Hey Ryan.....I am a colon cancer stage IVB survivor also and I understand what you mean....we need to learn how to live with what cancer left to us and work on to improve or eliminate some side effects that insist to remain in our body and mind....I see you also face some problems with your memory......I have been using brain exercises and practicing it daily.....also I do crosswords and I was told that play chess also helps but this latter one I haven't tried....I use the side www.lumosity.com for brain exercises and it showed to be very helpful to me....if you want take a look on it and give it a try.....wishing you good luck and all the best......God bless you and continue blessing all of us

      One thing we were never told...it ain't over when it's over! I've learned to accept the new me despite all the limitations. It's not in your head. It took almost a year for doctors to diagnose all my problems. I've had a lot of physical therapy and despite much improvement, I still struggle every day with a myriad of problems, including neurological, muscular and yes, good old chemo brain, But when I start feeling frustrated, I remind myself that I'm cancer-free.
