      Anxiety can be such a difficult sensation, and thought intruding experience. Something I have found helpful is talking with a therapist who specializes in working with clients who have cancer, and more specifically the diagnosis of your personal cancer. I have found comfort in just talking about what thoughts and feelings inside are causing the anxiety or just exploring what it might be verabally, written, artistically, can help give an outlet to that negative energy and turn it into a positive self researching experience.

      I started having really bad panic attacks after my mastectomy. It kept getting worse and worse. I couldn't sleep or eat and was so sick. I went to counseling but was too severe at that point. It took me 8 months to finally be brave enough to take the medications they gave me. Thought it would never end. The good news is the medicine is working and I feel so much better. Just take one thing at a time, one dr. appt. at a time, and pray and believe. Everything is going to be ok with a little time. I promise! God bless you, my prayers are with you. kim
