Hello, I'm a 21 year old male who was diagnosed a week after my birthday about 9 months ago. After the long haul of chemo surgery and radiation I'm finally on the other side, looking forward to the future I wasn't sure about.
Annoyingly, I had to drop out of school completely to get treated, both due to the rarity and severity of the cancer. So for about the last 9 months I've slowly fought both cancer and entropy with little else to show for it. As I watch all my friends graduate, get jobs and head starts, I worry more about what I can do.
I guess my main question is do I. Have to return to school? I have no workplace experience but I'm not sure if mentally I'm prepared yet.
