Hello I am new to the site, I have been struggling with anxiety for about 3 years. Back in 2015 I was told by a doctor that I had aggressive colon cancer and it did not look good for me and I needed to prepare my family, he also stated that as aggressive the colon cancer was I needed to have a complete hysterectomy as well as some of mu colon taking out. I panicked and did not get a second opinion. In November 2015 I went into the hospital and has these two surgeries, (35 % colon removed and all my female parts) on the 11th day in the hospital the doctor came in and stated I could go home now as I did not have cancer at all!!! I know I should be very thankful which I am but boy did this affect me emotional, and in some sense I feel stuck. Like I can not let it go. I started having anxiety attacks 3 to 5 times a day, I was scared of everything and some days I am still scared. I have tried talking to someone, I've tried medication and for some reason I can not seem to let it go. I have an amazing husband and wonderful children so why can I not let it go? Thanks for listening.
