Congratulations! It's been a long, hard road!
Hi, I am struggling just like you did with the radiation, Your thoughts are exactly mine. And I have had panic and sobbing at my appointments. I have only gone to 4 and I skipped the 5th. I really want to quit. I already went thru chemo and surgery and am exhausted! Are you glad you didn't give up? I don't know how to move forward. I would love to talk to you sometime,
Shelley, I'm so sorry to hear that you're struggling so much with radiation! I hope it helps somewhat to know that you're not alone. It's totally understandable that you're exhausted after undergoing chemo and surgery and just want a break. Yes, I am glad I didn't give up on radiation... To get through it, I got a small dose of anti-anxiety medication from my oncologist, and it helped a lot. I also saw a therapist to talk about my fears. I'm now almost six years beyond it and feel great. I wish you all the best in making the right decision for yourself, and I wish you peace and healing! XO
