Anybody else out here acting like its all ok?

Im doing a home improvement job away from home and am finding myself worrying that i shouldn't be doing this.

At home in my safety zone, i just ignore things like lymphedema, muscle loss, and fear, I'm all up in my head just like I'm smack in the middle of my treatment. Anybody else have trouble getting back in to physical work

Im 30 days out from my Mx and 15 days from my super saddening Nipple-ectomy due to blood flow problems. So Im still taking it easy. Im a professional photographer and my job is super physical, esp. upper body. Im worried about these TEs being a problem, stuck with them til the end of the year. Come Sept I have to cowboy up and get back to work.
