Thank you very much for your reply,l try to do mindfulness but my mind races to much. l just have no idea what to do next in my life, l have just closed my business due to the lack of concentration so this has caused enormous stress as well, my partner of 10 years l feel l don't love anymore he is so kind gentle and most of the time understanding, in 10 years we have never had a argument or raised our voices so why am l questioning? Part of me just doesn't want to be here anymore, this is so sad as l have 3 children and 7 grandchildren and it is for them l try and stay strong. l will try the writing and see how this goes, Thank you.
Hope your husband is recovering and all is well there xx

My name is Janet lm 56 years young. l was diagnosed last October with lung cancer, l had surgery removing part of the lung followed by chemo and radiotherapy. My issue is l for some reason just can't move forward. 25 years ago l had breast cancer and did not experience any of this. l feel like lm dying from the inside, l feel nothing, l have no emotional feelings, although at times lm a blubbering mess, mentally lm going crazy trying to find the old me, l feel like lm giving up when lm not. Cancer thoughts rarely leave my mind, l have put on 20 kg since starting treatment which is adding to the depression more, lm on anti depressants/anxiety meds they help sometimes but not others. l feel l have lost ME, l have booked a appointment at the end of the month with a psychologist.... until then any advice would be greatly appreciated.
