Often during times of stress and anxiety people can experience intrusive thoughts. Also, alcohol can disrupt sleep and cause anxiety.
It sounds as if it would help to speak to someone about how this. You can call our Helpline to talk through your diagnosis of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and how you are feeling. Your call will be confidential, and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks. The number is 0808 800 6000.
It might also help to talk to your breast care nurse and find out what supportive services are available at the hospital. Counselling can often be offered. Your GP can also let you know how they can help.
I'm sure I cant be the only one who's had this problem but I was diagnosed with dcis last week. The evening turned into emotional and too much alcohol for sure but I woke up in the middle of the night shaking and with a very fast beating heart.. added to that there was a thought running around my head that I didn't love my wonderfully supportive and giving husband who has been constantly by my side through whatever livfe has thrown at us for the last 24 years... is this some kind of psychological trait that you try and push people you love most away so they dont have to deal with the trauma. Obviously I haven't spoken to him about it... but its adding to the trauma in my head..
