Finally, it’s over. After her last treatment, it’s time to rebuild, reinvent, and reinvigorate her and your life again. The time has arrived when you leave Cancer Land and reenter daily life. Some- thing has changed, however. The world she and you left when you went to Cancer Land no longer exists.
You thought that after treatment, you’d resume a regular, normal, everyday Joe kind of life, right? You’ve been craving, for so long, that ‘‘normal day’’—starting with breakfast, the morning drive, work, and/or maybe a round of golf, tennis, the gym perhaps, lunch, dinner, TV viewing, then off to bed.
But something is different than before. Something has markedly changed. She, and you, have been living in Cancer Land while the rest of the world, for the most part, hasn’t had a clue about your experiences. So what do you do now? It’s time to start over. It’s time to build your New Normal Life.
