Re: Anxiety

Hi Alvilajo

You touch on something that so many people mention around a cancer diagnosis - the anxiety that it brings with it.

I hope this Forum provides a space for you to learn about how other people have managed their anxiety, and I found some links that may be useful for you:

Anxiety

Hello I’ve not posted in the last year, my breast cancer started 2 years ago and I’m due my 2nd mammogram next month hoping for another all clear.

im feeling down, different, no confidence, I’m overweight. Anxiety’s been part of my life for many years. Little things are triggering the anxiety again. I’m waiting to see a liver specialist as I’ve got a fatty liver and gastrologist for polyps in gall bladder, my doctor says he’s just being precautious but was referred dec and no appointments as yet.  Then mammogram then appointment with my surgeon.  Does anyone else feel like me and just wants to be left alone as all these things are playing on my mind, I get nervous when the phone rings or a letter comes through the door. I’m not good with waiting and the unknown. I feel like I can’t take much more of this, I need a mental break. Sorry for going on but I needed to get this of my chest xxxx
