Hello to all that responded to my message - and thank you :-)
Reading that I am not alone and that others have felt this way makes me feel a whole lot better.
I have since spoken to my breast care nurse and she has given me some great advice and some information that has helped. Great DVD from Peter McCallum called -Just take it day to day.
I have sat down and spoken with my husband and told him how i am feeling too. Although he is caring and reasurring , im not sure he fully understands.
I am taking it day to day and at the moment Im feeling okay.I think coming to terms with the new you and the new life will take some getting used to.
Just nice to know you can voice your concerns here and so many understand and just get it - thank you xx

Hi everyone...............im new to this forum.
I have had breast cancer this year, followed with chemo and radiation treatments. Finally finished everything on October 25th. YAY Now the next faze of Tamoxifen.
I went through the chemo well when i look at others. I had lots of family and friends support and help. Radiation was somewhat easier bu not kind to the skin.
I was brave,positive and did well through the whole process.
Now I feel like I have fallen apart.
Anybody else struggling with moving on.
I find im angry , sad,frustarted,scared all at the same time.
I dont know how to explain it to family and friends and push them away a bit trying to work it out in my own head.
I work from home and have continued this through treatment. I walk my dog everyday. Have returned to gym and even taken up yoga.
I am trying hard to do all the right things, but just cant stop this cancer scare controling my inner thoughts.
I have a husband and 3 girls aged 18-16-11. They have been great thoughout everything , but now im just grumpy or sad. Not much fun for anyone here at the moment. :-(
Anybody else struggler with this?
