Cancer turned me into a eunuch.


Am I the only one?


Some days it feels like it.


But then it’s not exactly something you drop into a conversation over a cup of herbal tea.


8 years after treatment and the hormone inhibitors I take are severely kicking my ass...or rather severely kicking my vagina.


How am I supposed to relish the honeymoon period of a new relationship when I don’t get horny and sex hurts?


This is the shit the doctors don’t warn you about.


But they should, to prepare you for the possible hurdles that lie ahead.


Why doesn’t anyone prepare you for what comes next?


For what comes after cancer treatment?


The cancer journey doesn’t end just because the treatment does, the journey goes on and it can be tough to navigate.


Thanks to everything I’ve put in my new book The Cancer Misfit - how to navigate life after treatment - I’ve navigated every challenge and hurdle that’s popped up along the way.


But there’s still some crap I’ve got to contend with 🙄 the difference is I don’t let it pull me down and under like I used to.

This whole sex and eunuch thing is just another hurdle.


And I will find a way to jump over this one, just like I have all the rest.
