Re: anxiety

I am 8 weeks post op and have been overly paranoid about everything! I thought I was all alone feeling this way! I am not on hormones because I was able to keep my ovaries - any one else feel like us??? Please help!

Re: anxiety

How are you doing otherwise? Are you up and doing any for yourself?

It sounds like a product of being "out of control" and cooped up in the house.

Your not able to handle things as you were before and frustrated, and you're in the safety of your home and have been for while - the big bad world outside is sounding scary at the moment.

Then there's the hormone roller coaster... that doesn't help!

Re: anxiety

I have anxiety. I have been taking meds for it for a couple of years now and it helps a lot. Talk to your doctor. Don't suffer. They have lots of things that can help.

Re: anxiety

Hello

I didn't have any anxiety but I did have a little depression. Hang in there things will get better. Try to do something to occupy your mind.

So true! Shell, I felt the same way when I started driving at 2 weeks. Felt spacey almost (and wasn't/hadn't been on any drugs at all for about 1.5 weeks before) and terrified of getting hit, just not my self at all. I think like Inva wrote above, we get used to being cocooned in our homes during our recovery, and we treat ourselves so gingerly and carefully to not get hurt, that once we get back out into the "real" world, it is very overwhelming. Likewise, it's easy to worry about loved ones getting hurt out of the same worries.

Re: anxiety

I have been getting out quite a bit but prior to my op been on the house a lot as in too much pain, no social life at all, although going out as family as much as poss. I thought maybe I've gone into a family bubble so to speak. Was talking to dh and we are unsure if this is a new or old problem hence me asking, as he recalls me going crazy with ppl if they come on time as I worry something has happened, I'm being extremely over protective I know i am but can't seem to stop. I will have to mention it to Dr tho as It's getting beyond a joke now, thank you 4 ur replies as It's nice to know I'm not. Alone xxx
