I have completed 2 out of six cycles of carboplatin/taxol. Fortunately I have coped very well only suffering tiredness constipation and the dreaded hair loss. But now I feel so depressed. Such a lot seems to have happened in then last few months. I first visited my GP on 26th July and within 6 weeks I had had an ultra sound, MRI, CT scan, 2 visits to a gynecologist and a full hysterectomy . 2 weeks later I was diagnosed with early stage ovarian cancer and told chemo would be needed to stop it coming back. I know how lucky I have been. But I now seem to sinking into a black hole of despair why me? ( I have looked after myself and was fit and healthy before this) will it come back? Will I die crom it eventually anyway? I look awful and I hate eating wigs/scarves. Will this nightmare never end. My partner and work colleagues have been amazing but I have had little family support. My parents are elderly and I have no brothers or sisters and one daughter lives 3 hours drive away and the other 40 minutes and I feel they don't care as they don't discuss my situation with me . I feel so lonely and cry all the time. I just can't snap out of it.
