You've just had a great deal of stress in your life. It's no wonder that you needed a good cry. I react the same way in a crisis, I bottle it all up for weeks until things improve and then BAM! It all comes out. You haven't had the luxury of things calming down yet, but that release of sadness was most definately needed.
It's very normal. Trust me. Medication can't really numb you entirely from stress and other emotions. It can make it a bit more bearable, but you should still be able to feel and function as human. If you are worried that the med dose is too high then do see your doctor about lowering it.
I am truly sorry that this has all hit for you now, feel free to vent about it, we will be here to support you through. We are a little family. Hang in there, and let us know how things go.
This is Kitt and I am so sorry to hear of your increased anxiety and what your going through. Some of the meds may make a difference in your emotional reaction.
I suspect you are the caretaker and the one that always stays strong so you may be holding in those emotions right now. Also sometimes when we let the tears come, the reality comes with it............cancer is a very scary word. I know this well and if I try to reason that it is ok and just be strong I do not cry but when I am tired and alone, the tears come and then the anxiety too.
Let youself accept what is happening and know that it is ok to cry. WE are all here to hold you up and (((((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))) for you my friend. You are never alone when you have this big family.
I will say a pray for all and keep talking to us.

I am so glad that you had some happy news. Your sweet little doggie Daisy does not have a tumour. That is wonderful. I would have had a HUGE cry if one of my pets had to go under anesthesia, my Kittens are my family as much as anyone else. I'm sure you feel the same way.
Hold onto this wonderful news my friend. I pray that your luck is turning.
