Trouble with language setting on forum and anxiety over biopsy

1 year 8 months ago #52967 by Hardy
I got good news about my biopsy today. I feel very fortunate and I wish you all had had the same. Reading posts here was very comforting while I suffered through waiting for the results and I want to thank you all for that. I wish you all the best.

Welcome to the site.

I als9 had trouble with sleeping, my days and n8ght were flipped for a couple weeks.. I seem to be back to normal now for my sleep pattern.

You may want to ask your doctor for some help. There are a lot of medications to help with anxiety and sleep.

Best wishes

I have asked our tech person about why the translator is giving you a problem this is the first report we have had. If you have a problem please let us know using the contact page. Waiting for pathology results is one of the hardest thing we do as survivors. It is easy to believe the worst when anything is possible, take a big breath and be good to yourself as much as possible. Once you know if needed you will get a plan of action. Let us know what you find out.

Hardy,

Welcome. We are all sorry anyone has to be here but, this is a good group to communicate with. I don't know how to help with the language thing, perhaps someone else can help. There also are numerous translator sites such as: https://translate.google.com/ .

As far as anxiety waiting for a biopsy. I am not sure anything I say will help except all of us have been through this. Still it is not easy nor fun. The good news is the majority of will beat this disease and it is treatable. Also, it easy for me to say "take one day at a time" as that is all we can actually control. Fill you time with something, read, walk, recreate etc.

Keep posting and ask away anytime.

First, i am having trouble getting the forum to stay in English after i sign in, and i don't know how to get help.

More to the point, i am expecting biopsy results in three days and i cant control my anxiety. I can speak logically to myself about possible outcomes, but my body does its own thing--insomnia, digestive problems, etc.

I found reading posts here comforting and i admire your courage. How do i get there?
