Dealing with the anxiety

I find myself often forgetting about my cancer but when i do, all the anxiety comes flooding back. I’m 2.5 months post-hysterectomy for a 1A1 adenocarcinoma. I know they caught it early. I know the risks of recurrence are low but I keep getting this overwhelming dread that I won’t see my kids grow up (they’re still so little…nearly 3 and 9 months). I’m now faced with health anxiety (have recently had the all clear after another 2 week referral to dermatology)

How do you all settle your soul? The worry is incapacitating at times.

I don’t know how else you deal with the worry except to enjoy every day and to know that if you hadn’t taken this action then you would have certainly NOT seen them grow up. Enjoy every day as a blessing and all the best to you xxx
