@Scarbo00 Welcome to the forum. Did you get PTSD from your cancer diagnosis or did you have PTSD and then discovered the cancer? I have PTSD and that was long before my cancer diagnosis. Been battling the cancer for almost 10 years and working on PTSD recovery about the same time.
Hope you find the information and support here helpful.
Hi! I've got diagnosed after my cancer, and I'm definitely sure that all my PTSD symptoms come from my cancer experience and also the social consequences that a cancer bring in your life, with family, friends and relationships. The thing I'm most struggling now, except for of course the panick attacks and the constant fear of dying, sinking really easily in all the bad memories, is the social anxiety. I've kind of forgot how is to have a normal life. I'm also starting with my therapist EMDR. Have someone of you tried? It's been two weeks, and I'm emotionally and mostly physically really in a bad place. I don't know if I should keep trying or just leave it.
@Scarbo00 Many cancer centers have therapists and groups that work with cancer patients, in dealing with the trauma and strain on relationships a cancer diagnosis brings. For myself, I found the group really helpful and there were a lot of other classes and seminars that addressed living and health post treatment. May be something else you could find helpful.
