I just wanted to run something by all of you and get your thoughts. Do many of you have friends who offer to accompany you to appointments? If so, do you take them up on it? Over the past (almost) year my husband has come with me to most appointments, but there have been a few I wanted to go to on my own (blood tests, complementary therapy etc).
I've only had one friend come with me so far. She had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and understood the nerves we often feel, so she drove. I have recently accepted an offer from another friend to drive me to my next infusion treatment appointment in February. Another friend has also offered to come with me in future, but she will expect me to drive. I'm not a nervous driver, but my point is that when I have an appointment for treatment or to see my oncologist I just feel that I need someone else to support me by driving. I have a lot to think about on the way to hospital, so need time to gather my thoughts. I hope this makes sense! Does anyone else feel this way?
Thanks for listening to my ramblings!
