  •  Oh dear, that sounds like an awful ordeal. (1+ / 0-)

    I'm glad you found a good therapist who was helpful to you. The "triggers" for old reactions makes sense to me.

    I had forgotten this until now, probably just as well: right after surgery, when I got the totally unexpected news that I was at Stage IIIC2, not at the Stage I that was anticipated before surgery, I called to talk with one of the oncology fellows about something or other. She was so seriously unsympathetic, and her only suggestion was that I talk to someone about being depressed.

    I hope I complained to the head doc. Yes, hearing seriously bad news about one's condition is enough to make one upset and afraid. I can appreciate the limitations of their training and expertise, but really, some compassion wouldn't be out of line.

    Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
