    Xanax & an anti-depressant. That's what's helping me right now. Plus, an AMAZING husband!

    I agree with Lysa. Great advice! Just remember you're not alone and everything you're feeling is normal. I read a lot & a book that helps me when I'm feeling down is "There's No Place Like Hope" by Vickie Girard. I found it on Amazon but your local library may have it as well. What a wonderful uplifting book! And I pray for strength. God bless you in your journey to wellness! Hugs, Diana

    I'm starting to talk to a professional. I'm nearly done with treatment, but my emotions are the most volatile now. I'm the most angry about my diagnosis I've been in 7 months. (Which I've heard is normal.) People at work think im fine b/c I keep it all in (I talk to a few people about it), but I need an outlet and the person needs to know what to say in return and I need to be okay with losing my composure...

    Astrid, Both of these comments posted are great advice and you should know you are not out there alone first and foremost. There are so many people in this world daily being diagnosed or finding out much worst. What we are going through is tough and it may make you feel like the world is coming to an end but remember it only gets better as time goes by. We must stay positive and strong and fight this disease. Try to think of all the many wonderful things that you have enjoyed in your life and think to yourself of how your going to get better and do much more. I was sadden at first and so lost not knowing which way to turn to until my Auntie came to be be with me and walk this journey with me and guide me through what to expect and how things might make me feel while going through this she is my guardian angel and having her come into my life to give me guidance helped me and it continues to help me daily. If you can say to yourself how much your thankful for then you to will do just fine and you will get through this battle. The medications might make you feel these feelings. But you must tell yourself that there is so much more to life than ending here. Stay strong and think positive because you are loved and you to can get through this even when the times get tough. Remember heeling comes from with the soul.

    I found exercise to be helpful for me. I have enjoyed walking at the beach. There is a great gift from the sea. If you live near one,I highly recommend it! Or go outside to walk with your favorite music!

    Hi, this is a very scary time. I found that religion was very helpful in getting through everything. I also had many people praying for me. Remember that God loves you and wants to help you. You may want to join a support group as it was also helpful to me to talk with others who were going through the same thing. You may want to talk with your doctor to see if there are other options. Best of luck to you!
