    Hi @Not_good_63_57,
    please consider seeing a psychologist if you haven’t already. One should be provided to you for free by either GP or oncologist. If for nothing more than to get your anxiety in order. I’m also a sufferer of panic attacks and have generalised anxiety, and my psychologist has helped so much in calming my nerves and getting me to stay grounded. It’s a work in progress, but the more you go the better you feel. I hope the side effects ease up 🤞♥️

    I had one through my GP cos I got a Mental Health Plan, but wasn’t too happy with him. Then I asked my medical oncologist for one just before starting Letrozole and they provided me with one straight away, and she’s not even part of the MHP. I’ve been getting regular sessions and it’s been so helpful. They knew I was anxious though as it says it on all my notes. Give your onco a call, tell him your side effects and request a psychologist ASAP. Tell them you’re suffering quite a bit. And do something nice for yourself. This stuff is hard. We need to find the good.

    Really hope so 
    it’s hard to deal with sometimes but hopefully by Xmas I will feel bit better

    It is really hard, more than people can generally understand, but the main thing is you’re willing to fight for yourself and seeking the right help. Keep it up, things always get better when we will them to 👌🏻♥️

    Deep breaths, and just take one day at a time - one hour at a time, if need be   @Not_good_63_57  .....

    You may have to pull your Big Girls Pants on for the next couple of weeks ..... Some times, we have to fake it, to make it ...

    You can do this xxx

    Treat yourself now & then as a 'Well Done' too!!  It could be something as simple as sucking on a Mango or a walk by the river - something that just takes your mind of things xxx

    And remember the song - Girls just want to have FUN!  Oh YEAH - Girls just want to have FUN!  
    You WILL have fun again xx

    Good on you @Not_good_63_57 - oooh, I hope all goes well with your daughter - I hate going to the dentist (I busted a tooth a few weeks ago & still haven't had it looked at .....) and I come from a family of dentists!   LOL. My dad, grandfather, godfather, brother & sister ...... all dentists!!  (Also all retired or passed now!)

    You'll be happier when you can ride again too .... a busy body = a busy mind .... cos it is our mind that often is more 'mucked with' even than our bodies.  :(

    Take care xx
