Let me start off by saying that I am so thankful for all my friends who have stepped up through my treatment. But being 18, and just out of high school, my friends are beginning to show up/ talk to me less and less. And that's so hard. This process can be so isolating, and even though I try to understand, going through something like this with no one to talk to sucks. When I hangout with some of my friends, they'll talk to me about their boy problems or how stressed they are about little things.. and I feel like I can't really relate anymore. Being a teenager with cancer and going through treatment is tough.. but being alone too makes it even harder. And how am I supposed to vent to the same people I'm trying to keep strong? It's just a very hard situation to navigate through.
Any advice? Anyone to talk to?
