I'm still having a lot of pain in my chest and my arm and under my arm. It has been almost 10 months, I am so tired of this, will it ever go away or is it something I have to live with from now on?
I had a mastectomy and lymph nodes removed, why is it still painful? is that normal? anyone else had this? what can you do to help? what restrictions would help? no heavy lifting? ice packs or hot packs? suggestions and recommendations. thanks.

@Chevelle , I have had panic attacks and anxiety and depression since I was13 and I am now 57. I have had good days and bad days and simply horrible days. I have never gone a whole year without having one of the above issues. I pray a lot and talk to family members. I don’t really have any friends to talk to. My friends are my animal rescue friends and we don’t discuss personal issues. I feel very alone most days. That is why I joined this site. I’m hoping that I can make friends and help too.

@Jujubeaner iam sorry to hear that. Its good you have your family. And animals. Even though the animals don't like to get personal. I wish they had a cure for this. It paralyzed Me and Millions of other people . and if you need a friend Iam hear. Iam to Good of a friend to my own friends and family when I feel like shit. Family understands but some friends think I need to get out of the house have a couple beers. Or there just like me. They know what Iam going through. But there living there life working every day and going out with friends. Having good times. And iam sleeping my life away. Not wanting to go out or see anyone. Where a lot alike.

@Chevelle hey friend, I hope this message finds you feeling better.😁 I'm sorry to hear about what you are living with as I too deal with anxiety and depression. I have to say it's funny how our lives change and you would think that people would recognize our changes and adjust to us. Unfortunately we live in a difference society today. It seems to me that everyone is so busy now and all the electronics (LOL) make real communication, one on one, an issue. I wanted to extend to you my hand in friendship. If you need to talk or vent or whatever, give me a shout on here. I may not be able to get back to you right away but will eventually.
I hope you have a better day today and that this site will be able to help you with your needs.
God bless and I look forward to hearing from you soon.😊

@naturalremedygurl Hello friend. I thank you for your message. I understand when people finelly take there own life. Depression is torcher. Just been going on so long. I grown up with my mom bipolar. And it sucked. Dad was a drinker and gambler. When I was little I didn't won't to be like my dad. I wanted to be a good worker. And be there for my family. But I did ok the first 8 years of my marriage. Then the depression kick in. And I didn't want to admit it. Always thought it was my job the weather. Been on disability for 17 years now. Iam just embarrassed about it. I always had low self-esteem. But the depression really help at all. Iam lucky I have an understanding family. But when I good to family things on my side of family. I feel like shit. It sucks that the older I get the less time I have to get better and live. Well I think I went on long enough. If you ever need to talk Iam a good listener. Thanks again and have a great day. 😀

@chev , I’m here if you need me! Don’t think negatively. I do realize it’s extremely difficult. Try not to watch the news, it’s nothing but bad news. Try to do some form of exercise. It really helps! And please pray!

Hey y'all, I have to say I'm loving all the positively on this site 🎉. I want to briefly share with you (briefly? Yeh right 😌), that the inspiration I have received from your posts, msgs and general support has been over whelming... Thank you from the bottom of my heart, truly, I feel that I have a place where I won't be judged but just loved in a way that only we can understand and that is mighty powerful my friends.
Words can either bring life or death. Our brains process so many feelings and emotions (and I'm talkin every second) that when it becomes critical to make the right decision we need to choose to speak life. I am a true believer in that what you speak is powerful so why say or want to get news in any other form than hey this is where we can start and build on that.
Let's encourage one another to be winners for 1 more day. Let's speak the truth but through positive thoughts and take then take a sec, enjoy the thought, and then express.
God bless you all and thank you again.🙏
