This is Kitt and welcome to our world............you are not alone as far as others understanding where your coming from and what you are goiing through.
I have read your posts and I am sorry you are so sad, but I can tell you from experience that cancer patients do not get any special treatement or referals then any other patients as it is a world driven by our insurance providers that sets the rules. We have to advocate for ourselves and speak up for what we need. There is a lot to be said for learning to be assertive when we are fighting for our lives.
One of the best remedies for anxiety/depression is to talk about it. Here's where good friends and family can come in. The old adage "A problem shared is a problem halved" comes into its own here, and while you may dismiss it as nonsense, it may surprise you how anxiety alleviating it can be to just talk to someone. Talking to us is a big step.
Obviously when you're feeling at a low ebb, the last thing you tend to think about is the things that are good in your life. But to do this is a sure fire mood lifter and anxiety buster.
You will see me preach my "Staying in the Moment" as that has been the one thing that has kept me functional on many occasions.
It's really important for myself to be able to stay in the moment. I have found that by avoiding things like dwelling on past or worrying about the future I am usually able to get done what needs to get done when it needs to get done.
If you can learn to stay present in the moment then you can rapidly and gracefully change your life for the better!
Our personal power is accessed in the present. We are creating our futures right this very second through the thoughts and energy that we are sending out. What future are you creating for yourself if your thoughts are filled with anxiety, anger, and fear? What would your future look like if you could send out love, joy and prosperity?
Practice staying present today. Take deep breaths often. Really feel what you are doing. When you are driving in the car really focus on what you are doing, seeing and hearing. Approach your work with focus and clarity. When you are with a loved one really listen to what they are saying to you
“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”
I wish you peace and happiness. I hope you stick with us and let us support you.
