Hi, @azkidney57 – since you talked about anxiety and depression due to cancer, I've moved your post here to this discussion entitled "Anxiety due to cancer" so that you can connect with others talking about similar situations.

Glad you have connected with @artscaping and @gingerw on what you've shared here with your cancer journey, the evolution of yourself as a person and the new irritations you are discovering post-diagnosis. I'm hoping that members who've participated here like @grandpabob @merpreb @julieannarcand will have some input for you on the depression and anxiety. @parus and @jiffer69 also may have some thoughts for you.

azkidney57, how have you managed your anxiety thus far, particularly at night, when you mentioned it had interfered with your sleep?

My doctor put me on Clonazepam the smallest dose I take one at night it helps me sleep. I can use more because it is used for panic attacks which I don’t get thank God. I sleep mostly OK but when I am stressed out I tend to wake up around 2 or 3 am. Sometimes I can’t shut my brain down. I am working on trying to distract myself. I have a full time job and that helps. I will be less stressed out when I get my scan results back! Thank you for asking.
