Struggling to move forward in life
I was diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancer in December 2015 and didn't worry about it but after my chemotherapy and radiotherapy things haven't gone well for me. I was drinking heavily and although I have stopped that, my life is meaningless. I was only 48 when it began and at 51 I feel like I'm on the scrapheap waiting to die. I have beaten cancer and people say I should be glad but I now have a tracheotomy and feel like I will never meet a partner. I am lonely as hell and don't know where to turn?
