It’s very difficult to move on, for me anyway. The side-effects are constant reminders: for me it’s my left sided weakness, motor skills loss, hearing loss & chronic pain. It’s not as bad as a stroke but, like that and with chronic pain. I’ve learned how capable I am over these last few years, regardless of the tumor. Being diagnosed so young affects your career, everything. So finally understanding how capable I am has meant so much to me. Right now it’s really hard for me to be happy with my life: I don’t have the support I want ( only my parents), a few friends who understand my struggles, and I need to work on my social/dating life. And I need to figure out how to be happy. I was when I was young, before my diagnosis.How do you all find happiness post diagnosis? How do you move on and not be aware of the tumor?
