I have to sincerely thank the therapist that made me feel at ease on our first meeting, and that I was able to open up to her and discuss all that I had been through after my surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy last year.
I was scared, anxious and feeling really depressed after my breast cancer treatments and in a lot of pain. With being able to talk about this with someone that really listened over the weeks, and took all that I said on board, we were able to discuss areas that I could help myself with. By dealing with things one step at a time, rather than being overwhelmed and not able to cope with all that was going on with my family or life in general.
I set goals for myself each week, and was so happy and I felt so good when I completed these goals. This gave me more confidence and made me feel more positive about myself. Talking to my therapist made me feel able to cope with all that happened last year, and I am now feeling more positive about my future, life and happiness.
I am looking forward to attending the pain management program in approx 3 months time, as I think this will help me cope with my pain. I'm so thankful that my therapist recommended and put my name forward for this.
Sincere thanks for your service Ruth, that has made me look forward to my future happiness.
