It's not unusual for emotions like anxiety and fear to come back when your regular contact with your healthcare team ends. Emotions often become chaotic again. Feelings of loneliness and depression are not unusual. Grief and fear may surface. Or you may feel perfectly fine. It’s different for everyone. And it’s all Okay. Finding out what to expect from someone who's experienced it can jumpstart your healing. Schedule a phone session with me now, or sign up for our What's Next After Cancer Treatment six-week cancer transition telecourse.

Many people report "my life doesn't fit anymore" feelings. Your priorities may be different now. The before-cancer Paula defined happiness with things like promotions and vacations. My after-cancer choices began to shift toward doing things I was proud of, or that made me happy and grateful to be alive. You can reduce stress and enjoy life more by shifting your priorities. My What Matters Most? telephone coaching package helps you decide what to  focus your time and energy on. Sign up now.
