Cancer worries

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello. I am so fatigued lately, I suffer badly from health/general anxiety. I feel weak when I walk outside and often feel like I'm going to faint (I haven't so far). I've convinced myself that the fatigue is because of cancer and that I will pass away soon. I'm so lonely and scared. I live with and care for my elderly mother, who I can't really have any sort of conversation with anymore because her hearing is bad and cognitively, she's not as sharp as she once was. I work full time in a very stressful environment and have no time for myself. I'm just so tired all the time and so scared.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post and reply, I am genuinely grateful. It's such an awful feeling isn't it? Anxiety is a very lonely and isolating condition that takes away so much of us. It makes me so sad xx
