Hi my dear compadres,
I am writing because I have had three surgeries in 6 weeks, and I need help understanding my emotions - one surgery for a D & C, one for my ear (the only one I really planned)
and recently one for breast cancer (I had the surgery yesterday).
I am a very upbeat person and very warm and postive but lately I am angry and cry frequently.
I recently find I am using profanity with my doctors and friends out of pure frustration (previous to this I never have said a single cuss word). I guess I am frustrated with all the doctors appts I have had all summer. One doctor contrdicts another as far as treatment is concerned and I can't take one drug or another because its good for one condition and bad for the other. I get very anxious because I feel I have to make the decisions regarding my treatment (and I don't want to). To complicate things I have a blood clotting disorder and all the doctors magnify it even though I haven't had a blood clot in many years.
Has anyone out there had everyhthing happen at once like me? If so would you kindly describe your emotional state of mind and how you have learned to cope.
Thank you so much for sharing.
