5 down and 25 to go! I’m having a lot of anticipatory anxiety before the treatment and am fine after it. Some of my appointments are at night because I haven’t gotten into an earlier slot soon enough. Waiting all day gets to me, mainly nauseous. Any tips for me ? I need to calm this stomach of mine. I’m thinking of taking half a Xanax to see if that helps. Thanks for any helpful hints.
Do something you love everyday that brings you joy. Call friends to pass the time. Plan an activity for everyday, preferably with a friend like a walk, shopping or listening to a meditation tape together. Ask friends to recommend funny videos. Laughing is medicine. Ask the children in your life to share a joke with you as often as possible.Treat yourself to a manicure or to something you don’t normally do.
Actively find ways to distract you from thinking about your treatment and keep you engaged in life!
Wishing you success!
