Hi Faith,

I imagine you have, but just in case, I thought I'd throw it out there. Have you tried Christian counseling to lessen your fear? I suggest going to a licensed counselor and not a pastor. You need someone who has the proper training and compassion to help you deal with the fear. I hope this doesn't sound preachy, but you will only be free from the fear when you deal with it properly. Medicating it is just putting it off and actually letting it grow larger. Your fear is totally understandable, but the life that you have right now is being taken away not by the cancer, but by the fear of the cancer, and that's not much of a life. You deserve to live each day as a gift and not in fear. I know an excellent counselor in my area, but I have no idea where you are :-). I can recommend a website to help you find someone in your area. It is , which is the website for the American Association of Pastoral Counselors.

Know that you are loved and in my prayers. Please take care of yourself, and deal with this fear from the root, not from a bottle.

I am also dealing with the fear that has come back in regard to my diagnosis of Melanoma in July of 2002, and the fear of recurrence or metastisis,which haunts me. It's very tempting to go back on Effexor, to lessen the fear, but I just can't do it..not after what I went through with the withdrawl.
