I'm in remission from lymphoma but I am still worried
It is okay to be worried, you've been through a lot already I'm sure. Are there any support groups you can attend? Maybe consider talking to a counselor just to get the worries off your chest. Best wishes to you and congratulations on the remission.
you are so right river56 I have only just gone in to remission I've had a long year and I know the doctors are right and I'm OK but I just panic at every little pain but thank you for taking the time to get in touch with me happy new year
Welcome to the club - I'm in partial remission and every lump, bump, cough, ache or pain seems to scream "IT'S BACK!"
I think its called "watchful waiting" but it can sometimes feel like paranoia.
I realise none of this will help practically, but at least you know that your feelings are pretty normal.
How we live with this is down to us as individuals - we all work out coping mechanisms in the end - but don't hesitate to talk to your GP about your uderstandable anxiety. Mine has prescribed a mild anti-anxiety medication which helps me sleep at night.
