Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
My wife was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer, every time she needs a mammogram or something in her blood work is elevated, I become consumed with worry. So much. that all I do is think about it and read about it on the internet, which we know how bad that info can be. For example, she has a value in her blood that is elevated, they assume its because she is vitamin D deficient so they will re-check in a 8 weeks. This level also rises in cases of bone metastasis. So, I am trying to figure ways to catch myself when I get in that place. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to live life and not spend the next 8 week consumed with what if?
