Did anyone else "lose it" months after treatment was over while being strong and positive while it was happening?

I thought I had it all under control. Then after reconstruction surgery I was upset all the time. Crying, angry, can't sleep, panicky feeling. This was months after treatment was over. Did anyone else experience this? What did you do?

I still have a day every now and then when I loose it. Its hard not to, when you see the scars or your just so tired when you never used to be. I just loose control and cry for a while and then I'm done for a while again till something else sets it off.

Yes, if you check out my page that is actually EXACTLY what I've been struggling with the past several days. It is hard because we have fought so hard and cancer has become a part of us but unfortunately no one realizes that. I hope you start to feel better, but know that myself and others know how you feel *hugs*

I just finished my last chemo on August 1st and have been really emotional - crying and happy, feeling like I just conquered an obstacle course yet on the other hand so overwhelmed that I still have more treatment left to do. I think it's normal; we've been through so much! I try to just take it a day at a time and sometimes even just a moment at a time. Try not to be so hard on yourself.

yes I was that way after radiation I was done thos June. I kept it all together during treatment. It seemed afterwards I was experiencing separation anxieties. My doctor said it was normal although it does not feel like it!! I am actually going to see a counselor to talk b/c I no my problem is I dnt share a lot, I think this will help me to talk through my feeling and feel better about my process!!!

I posted a reply and it got deleted. :( Basically, I said that I was also fine during treatment, but after reconstruction and our move to TX I am starting to struggle a bit. I have some anxiety, depression, and an overall uneasiness about what life is really supposed to be about. How am I dealing with it? I have Xanax for the panic attacks but that's about it. I am hoping that with time I will start to feel better. I'll pray for you to feel peace as well.
