Hi Amany and Alka, so sorry to hear you are both suffering. Anxiety such as you describe is quite normal under the circumstances, and you may be assured that many on here have been sad, and worried after their operation and treatments. This forum provides superb help and support generally, but as a rule we do not 'befriend' individuals.Instead, if you have a specific question or problem then we always, always try to offer help and support. It is easier if you can go onto an area of the forum and then pose your question. As you can appreciate it is hard to provide support when it is so general. I really feel for you, especially as you are not in this country, but ask a specific question and someone will reply. Best wishes. X

Hello and welcome, I wanted to echo ann's post.
Another thought is there a Maggies Centre or MacMillan centre near you that you could visit. They do offer counselling sessions as well, which you might find helpful rather than the psychologist, so do not give up on that.
With regard to the pain in your other breast it might be an idea to contact your breast care nurse and talk that over with her to see what she suggests and also to get peace of mind. I know when I had my diagnosis my bcn suggested that if I needed counselling she could arrange something for me through the clinic, so that might be another option to talk through with her.
It is quite normal to feel the way you do, a lot has happened in a short space of time and getting your head around all of it does take time, but honestly it does get better with time.
Sending you hugs xxx
