I cried every single day I had radiation (twice a day for five days) and my rad onc and his staff are some of the nicest people in the world. That was just sort of when it all came crashing down on me. I was better by the time I started chemo, so that helped. I think it is important to give ourselves permission to feel all the different emotions that come with a cancer diagnosis, for me it was anger, grief, sadness, fear, and giddiness as I got towards the end and started hearing good reports. You might see if your insurance would allow you to see someone farther away for radiation, if you have family in a town with larger oncological resources, that might work for you. Hang in there, you can do this.
