    Control of emotions
    glm0675 posted:
    After Stage 4 diagnosis, colostomy and start of chemo and frequent adjustment of pain medications, despite what I think is good support, I find myself becoming uncontrollably emotional, teary and unable to carry on a reasonable conversation. Is this a normal part of the process or indicative of other problems?

    Perfectly understandable!

    I can remember crying in the parking lot of my local Kroger after my breast mass was found and it ended up being only a stage 1 tumor!
