Don't go on Google, it's the information from hospital I've read.
I've got a number for someone at macmillan, i will phone them.
Anxiety takes over my mind & I become irrational even though I can see on here that it's doable on here by the amount of ladies who've done it.
I've got friends who've had chemo & are now getting on with their lives
It's all a waste of time & energy what I'm doing but I feel so obsessed by it all going wrong for me !
Don't know how to stop my mind, I'm going to go out for a walk I think.
Thanks for your replies. X

Thank you, not sure if speaking to BCN will help.
I might phone help line later.
Reading all side effects is daunting, oncologist said to make sure I read it all, blimey how does anyone agree to having it, it's mind boggling worrying.
Thinking about positives is in my mind for 2 mins then hours of chaos thinking all sorts, need some serious medication to calm me down.

Having a really bad day, cannot stop shaking, I'm becoming obessessed with the chemo treatment.
Feel traumatised by it all.
Need some help with this.
Haven't been able to concentrate on anything since appt yesterday.
Oncologist said to try at look at positives, suffer with anxiety/depression for years so thinking is warped already.

Got my appt for chemo tomorrow afternoon, it's not even for the treatment it's just to discuss things.
Feeling so anxious about what they going to tell me, feel jittery & so nervous.
Not coping very well I feel so overwhelmed by it all.
Goodness knows how I'm going to be when the treatment starts.....

Hello Ladies, I just wanted to wish you all well as it's now October and the start of your chemo. I had 8 rounds of FEC-T and finished a year ago. For anyone that hasn't seen my blog, here it is with lots of ideas for coping with side effects (you may not get as many as me though so don't worry!). http://lifeafterlola.com If you want to ask any questions about chemo to experienced matriarchs (lol) just post them on the earlier threads and others will be able to help (I'm on 'May 2017 starters' and we are a friendly bunch). xxxxxxx
