I realized today that our cancer journey must be similar to other traumatic situations and wondered if we could be experiencing Post Traumatic Stress....I found this website and intend on checking it out further. It's very interesting. Here is what it says about PTSD and Cancer
"People affected by cancer report experiencing emotions and mental states with many highs and lows, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and post-traumatic growth (PTG).
Emotional extremes related to the cancer experience are not uncommon and can be worked through. Have patience with yourself. Explore different strategies to identify what helps you the most. If you feel stuck in a difficult emotional and mental place, try something new. Do not be afraid to ask for help."
