Crap day

Posted by

I'm having a really bad day. I found a squiggy lump by my scar last night. And am worried sick. My oncologist and his secretary dont work Friday and the surgery is closed. My head has been very fuzzy all day. I know the brain surgeon told me things would get worse before it got better but most days it does clear about 4 and today it hasn't. 

I've pushed and pushed for when they will start immunotherapy but am just told it will be a Tues or Thursday. Despite everything I have done to get myself one point of contact I still only have the prostate cancer nurse to ring, and as she says she doesn't know much about kidney cancer and becsuse she's in Chesterfield she has no access to what is going on about my treatment in Sheffield.

I've spiralled down and down all day. A friend is going to try and take me out for a bit this evening and I'm trying to persuade myself to go. But I feel such a misery.

Hi ,

I'm so sorry that you are having such a bad day.  There are times when nothing seems to go right and everything seems to conspire against us, often just before a week end when we won't have the opportunity to chase anything up until Monday.

I hope that you have managed to get out with your friend tonight and relax a bit and that your week end gets better from here.

All the best,

Fear of the unknown is the worst thing. Once we know what we're facing, we find the strength to deal with it.
