I was put under intense pressure at work, my fears, worries and depression got deeper and deeper, and self-doubt and lack of self-worth took hold. I felt trapped – alone – trying to fight my way out of this morass, but powerless to do so. My world felt like it was caving in, my whole life felt worthless, everything I’d done, everything I had strived for was thrown back in my face, I felt useless, a waste of space! This wasn’t just the cancer but the effect the cancer was having on my way of life as a whole.
