After fighting cancer for many years, your doctor has declared that your treatment is done. You officially kicked cancer’s butt. Congratulations! You should be on top of the world!


Unfortunately, you may find yourself focusing on what your life used to look like before you were diagnosed. Perhaps, like many people, you made cancer your constant companion. You also may want back the life you used to have. Although you might desire to pick up where you left off, unfortunately, that’s not possible.


After winning your fight against cancer, you have to accept what is now your new normal. Although you may not like what happened or what it stood for, your life has changed. The good news is that you decide how you want things to look like moving forward.


Think about what specifics you miss about your pervious life. Perhaps you were able to spend a lot of time with family and friends before you became too tired from treatment to stay awake for long periods. Maybe you were able to set and achieve daily, weekly, monthly, or annual goals before you switched your focus to making it through every moment day by day. You might have performed work you love until you no longer had the energy to do so. Determine what you liked best about your old life and recreate it. If that’s not possible, find ways to add fulfillment to your days going forward. Once again, you are in control of your future. Make the most of it!

When fighting cancer, you may want to talk to people who are on their own journey rather than people who have never fought the disease. If that is the case, you may decide to join a support group and discuss with strangers the things that you don’t bring up with your closest friends. Although such behavior typically is not done otherwise, you might feel better sharing with strangers who can relate to your cancer diagnosis, treatment decisions, and fears of living with cancer. Through your shared experience, you might even become friends.

Over time, you may decide to let your new friends into your established circle of support.


Even though you may go into remission and might no longer need the group, you could still get together with certain people or keep in touch through phone calls, emails, or texts. You can share your fears to regain control of how you think about cancer. Knowing you aren’t the only one who fought the disease can be a huge relief. You even could attend survivor parties together to focus on what really matters.
