How did ovarian cancer impact your mental health?

  1. Hello Rackel, learning about the diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer became a game-changer for me and my husband. Gratefully we lived healthy productive lives up until now. I must admit I was a bit of a control freak and had my life on a fast track to working as long as I felt I could be productive. The work I was doing included traveling by plane four times a week, running through airports to catch the next, and then consulting for long hours overseeing healthcare projects. The diagnosis was frightening as everything took a sudden stop. It evoked fears about loss and death. Initial weeks of chemotherapy made me weak and wondering if I could bounce back. Well, here I am for now.
