Thanks for taking the time to read my post
Its 18 weeks since diagnosis and 14 weeks since my radical hysterectomy and lymph node dissection. I'm back in work and grateful that life is getting back "on track"
But as I return to everyday life, I feel overwhelmingly anxious and self conscious. This is affecting my performance in all aspects of life, from doubting my ability to do my job, to panicking about driving a car, body confidence with my husband, knowing what to say in social settings, or even what to wear. I am constantly on edge about being "judged" and falling short, and I dont know why or where this has come from.
Despite what my username may suggest, before this chapter of my life I was very confident and assured. I had imagined I could come through the other side feeling stronger and more capable than ever and I am surprised/disappointed to find how timid I've become. I sometimes feel as if I'm not coping.
Just wondering if anybody else felt this way. Thanks for your time xXx
