The things no one tell you about surving that which was supposed to kill you

It was always rear it's ugly head in. One minute I'm fine. Next it's a full blown panic/anxiety attack.

Will it come back? Is it back? Am I overreacting?

Everything is fine. Then they little voice kicks in "are you sure?".

I hate feeling like this. It's not fair to me or my husband who is being so great about it.

I hate thinking these thoughts.

That's my confession. Cancer fucked me over mentally and emotionally. Even though I'm a (recent) survivor. I still struggle almost every day.

I want to move on. I want to get past this. I just don't know how.

You will, eventually. Continue healing and moving forward and eventually you won't feel like whipping your head back to see if danger is still just behind the corner. 

Congratulations for beating cancer. Survivor? No, ROCKSTAR.

You just went through what we all consider absolute nightmare fuel and came out on the other side, relatively whole. That's fucking amazing, but no rational person is going to land from something like that with cat-like grace. It's okay that you're still processing!

My Mom was the same way. I think she suffered more than she told us. One of her surgeries was very traumatic. I'm so sorry.

You are an amazing person. Just in case no one had ever told you that. Thank you for your words of encouragement.
