Hello, I've just been through a 2 1/2 month bout of severe bowel infection and am still healing. I've lost 40 pounds and thought at times that I was dying. It has made my anxiety the worst it's ever been. I'm having a bad bout right now because I'm just a little overwhelmed. My doctor is sending me for tests to rule out pancreatic cancer, I met my new therapist for the first time yesterday and I was very nervous although she is very nice, and I went out for dinner the first time with friends since I got sick. I just had a little bit to eat and I was taking deep breaths to calm myself the whole time. I was proud of myself yesterday for accomplishing all of that but now I'm quite overwhelmed and very teary and anxious. Just wanted to touch base and know there are others out there who are making it through this everyday. Thank you.
