Never joined a forum never had cancer b4. Been a roller coaster since 14th June when I found lump - two ops, lots of waiting for results 3 cycles of chemo (3 to go) now writing on 1st forum. V +ve @ 1st - now losing it. Where can I get help - v teary all the time - not functioning v well. Married - he tries bless him - no family support - one child - one dog. Went back to work but unable to go today - not eating not sleeping can’t bear cooking or cooking smells - think I’m going crazy - shout @ the hubby & child. Don’t even like myself. History of depression. Normally kicks in this time of year but with the cancer & chemo 10x worse. Help!!!

Hello Sherina,


I’m so very sorry you are having a difficult time at the moment. The best thing I can sugges is perhaps you could ring the free helpline on here. The number is 0808 800 6000. It is open from 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, and 10am until 2pm on Saturdays. Do you have a Maggie’s centre near you? They are a brilliant resource for support and advice too, Their website has details of where the centres are, If there is one close to you it might be helpful to pop in. Otherwise, try their online community.


Sending you big hugs and best wishes.
