I don't know whether it is anxiety or not.
I have coped with acceptance at my husband's cancer, I was organised in terms of packing the majority of house in May/June so that there was not that stress during July/August of RT before move in Sept. My dog's cancer was an out of the blue and rapid decline. Taking the decision to have her amputated felt a very heavy responsibility but once I had taken the decision, I felt prepared. Nursing her has been a 24/7 for the first 2 weeks and I was fuelled by love. She is making good progress and I am therefore more relaxed. I am frustrated with building work but I have voiced it. So I can't say that I am feeling anxious or I am in denial of the stress of last few months. The not being able to breathe easily does concern me and I am getting grumpy with it!
If it is anxiety, what can be done for it? I don't feel the need for counselling, just the need to be able to function better physically
Anxiety does not seem to be the primary concern
GP's referral letter for chest x-ray reads "on examination, there is reduced air entry in the upper lungs, worse on the left. There is deviation of the trachea to the right."
Blood tests being carried on.
On Doxycycline Hyclate 100mg for 8 days.
What does the examination reveal? What questions should I ask? Do I need to prepare myself mentally for not so good news?
Symptoms are as per my first note
