  • I have lost all of my confidence. I used to be sure of myself know I was good at my job. Know what I wanted to do. I had already bounced back from the first bout of cancerous tumors in my spinal column and had made comprises. Since my second bout years later I feel its taken too much. I don't feel the cancer has left me with any options in life socially and professionally. I am now left with hypothyroidism, chronic pain, a heart murmur and spinal cord and cranial tumors.
    On wanting to meet anyone romantically when do you drop that into the conversation . Plus body conscious issues due to weight gain and thinning hair.
    I hate feeling like a failure as a part of a working productive society. The cancer has taken so much I don't have a clue what I would be able to do full or part time.
    Again romantically a very common question is what do you do? How can you reply with a short answer. It's not a simple question. I'm never going to be without my symptoms and side effects. Does anyone else feel like this or does anyone have any stories or suggestions.
