Hope you are all doing well this week!
After my little meltdown week before last I went to my GP yesterday and as always he was great. He did the usual and said all was fine. He did bloods and rang me at about 7.30 yesterday evening to tell me all was fine (asked him not to do CA125 I have to add as I had agreed with my Onc that I would do that annually and I had it done already this year, there is potential for me to get very obsessed with this and it was never a good indicator for me!). My cholesterol is still raised though I have converted to mostly vegan diet but he said that it could be genetic (my mum died of vascular dementia so I wasn't really surprised to hear that) but he did say that my good cholesterol/bad cholesterol ratio was very good and he wished that he had the same cholesterol reading so I was happy enough with that!
The main reason I came on here is that I told him all about my little crisis and he suggested that I might benefit from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and I was wondering if any of you lovely ladies have every tried this? I am interested in giving it a go to be honest as the anxiety that I experienced week before last was not a pleasant experience and I would like to explore ways to avoid it if I can!
Thanks for all your responses to my previous post, I really don't know what I would do without you guys!
Onwards and Upwards!
