I'm Back

Well Hello all and Hope all is well! I have been busy with Doctors and test. I have had a ct scan, colonoscopy and pet scan. My CEA levels are running 11.3 which is high, however all test are clear. That is the positive note. I am applying for disability due to neuropathy. I have had to see a psycholist (sp) which declared me with anxity (no surprise there) and depression (which did surprize me) and the doc for a overview. So now I am waiting on the decision. So many people have giving me their opinon and have had me all upset. We seem to have more emotion when on all this medication. I did try one day to lesson the meds. Oh what a mistake. Trying to get my daughter to make decisions on college. Boy is that added stress. But we seem to be managing all. With love and thanks to all of you. Love Gina

Gina so sorry to hear you are having so many troubles. Good luck on your disability.
Hang in there Gina! Lots of love and prayers heading your way! Cancer is as much a mental disease as physical. I find my anxiety can get the best of me somedays. I try to keep busy and keep my mind occupied. If that fails I take something to calm me. There is NOTHING to be ashamed of about being depressed or having to take medication for the anxiety. All of us, even strong people struggle with it.
You sound more upbeat than last time you wrote. Thanks for the update!
Happy BIrthday!!! Hope all is well. :>
