Hi @jkenser,
You just had brain surgery to remove a brain tumor and you survived! That’s right, you survived! You need to keep telling yourself that. Maybe it would help if you would start keeping a journal. Write down all your thoughts, feelings & fears. Why do you feel like you’re one big mess, etc. Is there a support group in your area? If there isn’t, seek a professional who you can talk too. This fall, it will be 25 years since my brain surgery. I still have some high anxiety days. You’re not alone. You need to give yourself a break. Take a deep breathe. Relax….. For now, stay away from the internet. Focus your attention on something else. Do you have any hobbies?

I had Brain surgery in December, 2019 and still have numbness on right side of face/head. I started playing golf again in early March but this virus garbage has curtailed that. Medications were horrible in first month but none taken now. As my PCP says "you had brain surgery and now you play golf so shut up and try to make all your putts".
