  • Hi, my heart goes out to you,you fell how I fell,I lost my dad and 7 year old nephew to cancer and now I have health anxiety,allways on my mind any sensation and I've got cancer,have you tried councelling ,it helped me a bit ,but gradually getting worse again,I would not wish this illness ( I call it that because it is ) on my worst enemy,at the moment I'm waiting to see specialist about a lump in my breast ,can't eat ,sleep,i have fibrotic disease and have found previous lumps they were cysts ,thank god, but have to wait 2 weeks to see consultant,keep thinking what if,also have you tried mindfulness ,it a way of coping with anxiety,the one I was shown was to imagine your in a train station and trains stopping and going,you don't have to go on a train you can just watch them go past and past,try doing that with the anxiety you don't have to follow the anxiety just let it pass,I know easier said than done ,I'm sure everything will be fine ,thinking of you xx

  • I have anixety and feel what your going through. I have been bad for 8 weeks now but today I feel a lot better just by talking to people. I'm going to try a new approach to it tomoz. I suppose if the doctor thought it was serious they would call you in for test earlier than Monday. I hope everything works out for you and you beat this crap. Aniexty is a bag of sh!t. If we talk we can be it.M

  • Hi m thanks for ur reply ur right anxiety is a bag of shit whats harder is we battle with eachother everyday and i find that worse but ur right at least we can talk about it on here and what helps is knowing we r not alone that it is normal we all go thru

  • You'll be fine I am sure. If anxiety is high, just check it every now and then with CT and scans and you'll be happy to know that's just a benign case, you'll find relief by knowing that. Keep yourself busy and if the scan/Dr says do not worry, then just do not - and wait for next appointment which will be fine also. Anxiety is hard I know, you'll feel better by talking to people.
