what to do about mental issues after cancer

I suffered from depression and bipolar before the cancer I had my shares of UPS and downs but since the cancer it seems things are worse no matter how hard I try I don't have good control over my depression or bipolar I can go down at the drop of a hat a good day can change over the smallest things so many times I wish I would have just let the cancer run its course tonight seems to be the one that broke the camels back I just fell like I want to be alone but I also want to be around my family but I just don't know what to do has or does anyone else have this problem and how have you dealt

Waiting for results!

       Good afternoon everyone! I'm new to here and I am not a cancer survivor, however, I am waiting for results and am wondering if anyone has had any of my same experiances. A little back story on myself, I'm a 25 year old woman with 3 children aged 2, 3, and 4. I have a wonderful husband who is always there for me! I was having abnormal bleeding for 6 months. 2 periods a month and in January I bled the entire month. Along with a lot of fatigue and pelvic pain here and there.

I am so scared

I was diagnosed in October 2012 with Stagain treatentse 2 RCC Clear cell. Had my right kidney removed, 17x15cm tumor.The Dr. said it was the size of a football, he was shocked.  Was ok until a scan in September 2013, when it spread to my right lung.  Had 2 spots removed and was started on Sutent.  In April 2014 was scanned and Sutent wasn't working, but I also had a brain MRI which showed Metz on the brain.  In 2014 I had 2 brain treatments (Gamaknife).

My T and A Man

I told my surgeon, "I'm actually more worried about the colonoscopy than I had been about the lumpectomy."

My surgeon is a general surgeon, but his particular skills include both breast surgery and colonoscopy. That makes him literally my T and A man.

Feeling better! :)

Now that I am done with the first round of chemo (once a week, three weeks), the first round of radiation (5 times a week, 3 weeks) and started the second round of chemo (once a week, three weeks), had two bone strengthener infusions (one more to go), I feel a lot better. :)
