Hi all, I don't know if you all feel like this at times? If you do, what do you do to get past it? I just feel really depressed today. I go to the chemo doctor that I had the problems with today. I have only seen him once, before I started chemo. He was the one that was in the military and was drilling me with questions and made me cry when I went to him. Everyone says he is one of the best chemo doctors, so I am trying to hang in there. It seems, though, that I have not had time to really deal with my cancer feelings yet. Too much other stuff going on. Trouble with one sister-in-law driving me crazy, another sister-in-law trying to drive my mom crazy and steal from her, my mom having clonoscopy and scope into stomach, had to stay and care for her 3 days, my dad has altzheimers, so while I was at my parents I got a taste of how bad he is(been in denial I guess),my husbands job that he has had 3 weeks is terrible, they are working him to death and paying him nothing; in fact, they told him 8.50 an hour and are paying him 8.00 per hour, which is almost nothing; my son seems to think that at almost 24 yrs old that mom and dad is still supposed to take care of him, my daughter is about to get a divorce and her kids are way out of control(twin girls-3yrs old and boy-5 yrs old), WHEW!!!!!!!! This is just a start!!!!! I think I'll just crawl into a hole. Well, anyhow, what do you all suggest to get past this terrible, terrible feeling and take care of myself, for a change.
Love, Judy H(grandma047)
