Hi Cancer Survivors! Well after 6 years of remission from Acute Myloid Leukemia I am going back to work. My disability ended and I can't afford my own apartment on just Social Security so I made the decision to re-enter the workforce. I was hired as a part-time sales rep selling candy to convenience stores which is a fun job. I did it years ago starting out with Hershey, MM/Mars, Brachs and now Nestle. I did some bending, lifting and lots of walking. Did some sweating, had to pace myself. Scared I might get dizzy like when I was first diagnosed back in 2012. Should I have moved into subsidized housing in some undesirable place and stayed disabled? I hope not. I want to start living again no matter how scary it is. Has anyone in remission ever felt this way? What are your thoughts?

Congratulations on your remission. I am also a survivor who was diagnosed in 2012. I think you're absolutely right to go back to work and live as normal a life as possible. We both know that being in cancer treatment is anything BUT normal. Best of luck to you with your new venture. Sounds like a sweet job 😉
