Re: Coping with nerves and anxiety............. hints and tips please!

Hi Sanda, good to see you posting. I'm glad the op went well and you are not in too much pain. It's also helpful that you only have another week for your results / mtg with onc. It isn't always easy but try to keep your spirits up, it's what is getting me through. Make sure you get plenty of rest. Sending you my very best wishes. Sandra x

Re: Coping with nerves and anxiety............. hints and tips please!

Thank you Ladies,

 

You are all such an inspiration.  I havent been on forum for a few days because i had my 2nd op last Thurs and have been a bit lazy.  I had node clearance and the op went well, I am a little sore but other than that I am feeling fine.

 

I have a week to get my head together again ready for results and oncology appt next week. 

 

I will remember 'glass half full' and hope that once I know dates for chemo I can arrange some fun things to do with my time when I am feeling up to it.

 

Love to you all!!

Hi. This is my first ever post but as others have said keeping busy etc helps. My ONC said the glass is half full not half empty. I have now gone for that mindset. Yes a good cry is necessary as I did when the nurse put in the IV for my first chemo (that's when I came to tern I had BC and not even at the point of surgery ). Also ask as many questions that you can think of. Hopes and dreams are good and after having today off work as a precaution after chemo yesterday i went shopping and bought some lovely long sleeve cotton tops.

Sandra deffo keeping busy helped me! I felt better when I got more info, when I knew next steps I could plan fun stuff around it. Oh and using this site, and talking to husband, family friends etc. Don't worry in silence. I'm on round 2 tomorrow, typing this with a fuzzy head and feeling good!! Big kid today with trip to the zoo, chemo tomorrow so fun has to be had. Take care x

Coping with nerves and anxiety............. hints and tips please!

 Hi Ladies,

 

I am doing my best to stay positive and calm.  2nd op on Thurs and then chemo to follow.

 

Keeping busy, resting when I need to, trying to get a good nights sleep, drinking lots of water and eating properly.  Being outside in the garden and walking my little dog helps too............ how are you all managing to keep those those dreaded nerves at bay??

 

Thanks
