She also set me up with a psychiatric nurse practitioner for medication. You may need to have a dose change on your medication, or even try a different one. Cancer takes a major emotional toll on you anyway, so adding it to what you were already dealing with can be unbearable. I urge you to speak with your medical team about these thoughts you have been having. They can help you.
