After my 2nd cycle of chemo I had a psychotic episode and now have major depression.
I am 2 months post chemo and feel like I can't handle anymore physical, emotional or mental stress - everything was so traumatic.
I don't even think I want to take my next blood test.
At the moment I feel like I can't handle my relationships properly or feel like I will be able to run a house, family, drive to far away places for holidays (Is this a part of chemo brain?)
Can someone please reassure me that the depression will go away (I'm having a really hard time accepting the fact that it happened and how big my tumour was (8kg)
Can you please give me advice as to how you accepted your diagnosis?
How do you manage with different environments? and going on holidays?
Will I ever be able to plan things and read again like I used to? How long does it take for energy to come back?
I lost my confidence, self esteem and motivation, my interest in my interests
Has anyone else had these?
