I would just like to say thank you to the person who wrote in their post " sometimes courage does not roar, sometimes courage it the small voice at night that says - tomorrow I will try again"
I read this a few days ago and can not refind it but on the day I read it I was feeling so very hopeless and alone and that phrase (i'm not sure if I have it correct but the esence is there) haas been in my head ever since and helps me........
thanks to who ever posted it Georgie

Georgie, I'm not sure if this is the only time that quote has appeared here on Breastcancer.org, but here's post from May when the always-helpful member dlb823 quoted it to support another member:
And Cherioo is so right - this community is always here with support.

Georgie ~ Thank you for this thread, and also for your sweet PM. That quote was given to me by a now 12-year bc-survivor friend in Colorado when I was first dx (as I recall, her yoga instructor had given it to her when she was dx'd), and I honestly can't tell you how many times I read and re-read it (probably hundreds!) when I was first dx'd and then going through tx, usually just before going to bed. And each time, no matter how sad or down I was, it gave me a lot of hope and strength.
I'm so glad it's resonated with you, and I hope it continues to bless you. Deanna

Of course you can use it, Debbie! The author is actually Mary Anne Radmacher. I always give her credit when I write the quote out, as I think we should. Deanna

Finally after weeks of tears, trying to work and not coping, anxiety like waking up in the morning and being filled with dread, not eating, trying trying to be strong and just do it, pull myself together and not being able to and then hating myself for it, my best friend and husband made an appointment at a GP for me and after sitting in her room and crying for 30 minutes non stop and apologising for doing so and trying to explain how I felt and not being able to do so, and using a whole box of tissues and then crying because I couldn't find a bin to put them in........

(((Georgie))), what you're going through is well within the realm of "normal" after a bc dx & tx, and it sounds like your BF & DH did absolutely the right thing by encouraging you to seek help, and that your GP was very quick to see what's going on. In the U.S. we commonly talk about the aftershock of bc dx & tx as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) -- to one degree of another -- and I'm guessing "reactive depression" is a related dx.
It sounds like you're on the right track, and I'm so glad you're already feeling calmer. Deanna
