I take a good, hard look at my mental health and ask myself – Am I really doing my best?
Tagged: mental health
As we begin a new year, I take a moment to reflect on what 2018 brought me in my testicular cancer awareness efforts, as well as my own journey.
Various adjustments to my antidepressants, which I started after cancer, finally paid off. I reflected how mental health is treated on a societal level.
After facing testicular cancer, I realized I was facing depression. I needed help but I couldn’t do it on my own so I asked my doctor for help.
Just a few weeks after being told I was in remission, one of my greatest fears hit me. I thought I felt another lump and feared a cancer recurrence.
Being told that you’re now in remission from cancer doesn’t mean you get back to your previously scheduled programming. It’s a new start.
