Me too!

After my intensive cancer treatment year, I was so filled with energy to live my life well, and I was really riding high. I did a half marathon, the 3-Day, Race for the Cure, lost 40 pounds, joined a church, and the rest.

Some of that has stuck, some hasn't, but the thing I miss is the riding high. It's a much bigger struggle these days to feel the sheer joy of being alive, and I miss that. Of course I'm still grateful, and I DO feel it, but it's not the euphroia anymore.

Here's a NYT article that discusses that. I am not alone, and there is comfort in that.
