Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi, I'd like to help you with your question.
It is very normal to be crying everyday. With what you have been through, I would be more worried if you were not feeling upset and crying.
It is actually very healthy that you are crying. You are expressing your feelings and that is always a healthy way to cope.
Because of the type of stressors you have experienced and are experiencing, it is important that you be aware of a possibility of developing a stress disorder. Sometimes, when people are under enormous stress related to a life and death ordeal, they can sometimes feel overwhelmed and are not sure how to handle how they feel. They may become depressed, have low motivation, sleep problems and trouble with their appetite. If this becomes the case for you, try talking to a therapist. You can ask your doctor for a referral or you can search on line at http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/.
It would be very helpful for you to seek out support to help you through your cancer diagnosis and treatment. Therapy, support groups and faith based support can make the burden easier to handle. Here are some resources to help you get started:
Cancer: 50 Essential Things to Do: Third Edition by Greg Anderson
Breast Cancer Survival Manual, Fourth Edition: A Step-by-Step Guide for the Woman With Newly Diagnosed Breast Cancer by XXXXX XXXXXnk
Uplift : Secrets from the Sisterhood of Breast Cancer Survivors by Barbara Delinsky
You can find these books on Amazon.com or your local library may have them for you.
I hope this helps,Kate
