Dear Deb,

Welcome to our wonderful, supportive family.

I am glad you wrote and have a suggestion. Please contact the hospital where you were treated and see if they have a Supportive Care unit. They should be able to make a referral to a professional who can give you some psycho/social support to help you with what you are dealing with. Ideally, someone who is an expert in cancer and the anxiety it can cause.

Please seek some professional help. There is no 'easy' here, from my experience but a good therapist should help.

with warmest wishes for as good a Thanksgiving for you as possible.

warmly,

Steve

Dear Deb, I had some emotional unravelling after chemo - panic attacks, depression, some obsessive/compulsive behavior very uncharacteristic of me. It was the fallout of my body and psyche being assaulted over a period of a year with chemo, multiple surgeries, and fears about dying. I found a great therapist who helped me through it. Steve's suggestion is right on the mark. Please do reach out as he suggests, and I think you will find a caring person who can help.
