Should be dead... I had/ have Neuroendocrine Paraganglioma of Rt Carotid Artery, Vagus Nerve and Carotid Space...was given 2 months without treatment max... 4 years w treatment and that was in 2011... 2 neck dissections, radiation, 9 months chemo and still on immunosuppressant pills and been in a type of "remission" for almost 3 years w the pills... trying to finish grad school w vocal and hearing issues but some profs are rotten making fun of my horse voice, hearing difficulties and memory issues. I have always been sensitive but I get angry now about this. Since age 2 I have had roughly 24 surgeries, 6 related to my cancerous tumor. You would think Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine graduate school would be more understanding but it has been the opposite. I get criticized for doing everything and am told by by students and Profs that I should have just done herbs and hospice... this really pisses me off... then to top it off I was a straight A student, scored 97% on GRE exams... now sometimes I forget names of people, words, the date... my memory and memories are gone.. it is very frustrating. Yesterday I got so upset I stood up and chewed out my prof for making fun of my voice... what is wrong w me? What do I do? Does anybody else experience anger? I don't feel like I can ever relax. Thankfully my husband and 8 year old are very supportive. Thank you for your advice, stories, etc.
