    Depressed

    This will seem scattered, but I don’t know what to do. I’m depressed all the time and it’s ruining my life. I’ve unintentionally isolated myself from people more and more and it’s destroyed any self esteem. I don’t know how to talk to people anymore. I don’t use social media. I’ve always wanted to get married and start a family but that can’t happen if I hate myself. I feel like I’m pushing myself down a path that ends at suicide. I just feel empty and don’t enjoy anything. My life is get up, work, sleep, and think about death in between. I have had kidney stones a lot and a few weeks ago I went to the hospital because I thought I had a bad one, which I did, but then they saw a tumor that ended up being testicular cancer and had surgery to remove it and have a follow up in a few weeks to see if it’s all gone or if I have to start a full chemo treatment. I keep thinking that if I do then I will kill myself. I don’t want to but I’m sick of my life and don’t see a realistic path out of the mess I made. I hate myself for ruining my life. I used to be smart, funny, attractive, and confident that I could do anything, but that person died a long time ago. I’ve always been an introvert, but I feel so alone. I haven’t had a primary care doctor for 10 years and am scared to find one to ask about anti depressants despite working in healthcare. I don’t take any medications. I’m scared of what would happen if I told someone how depressed I am. Sorry this is all over the place. I guess it’s more like a stream of consciousness.

    Thank you for everything Alex Trebek. #CheckInWithMe

    As most of you heard today that Alex Trebek has died due to his with Stage IV Testicular Cancer. I have always have dreams of competing on Jeopardy! and meet this awesome person. Now part of my dream is gone. I have never met him, but my heart is breaking because it felt like he was part of my life growing up and watching him on Jeopardy with my family. Has anyone ever felt like this?

    Hero rock-heroes of oncology

    Edit-I said I would share some of my rainbow rocks for keyworkers on here so here's the next big one alongside the article .

    This one is a big one again guys. I am choosing carefully what to use these few large concrete bits on and oncology teams definitely deserve one. In your life you have a 38.4% chance of ever getting cancer, that's high so yes covid is a big deal but ignoring cancer could become a biggier one.
    On this rock I have big ribbons for all the core types of cancer, there's more, the rainbow smaller ribbons, they are leave for people who have passed away due to cancer and for those still fighting.
    The staff that work in oncology work as doctors, nurses, HCAs, pain speacilists, phsios, Macmillan nurses, palliative care teams, hospice staff, care workers and this list goes on so please know if you work in this area this rock is for you . They trully care, they are they for the patient and families.
    Covid has caused alot of problems for this service. They had periods in the beginning where they had to cancel treatment so they could safely have patients come in especially since they were at high risk of getting covid.
    They are in some areas using buses to do chemo, some separate buildings but they put they work in to get there.
    The other worry was in patients spirits, they were alone. We actually sent some comfort rocks to some including children to help here. Then people haven't gone to screening due to fear of going out, these are so important, it's not just the screenings it's believed they are ignored Lumps, headaches and so forth all for fear of Covid.
    Right now yes covid is bad but follow the guidelines and be sensible, don't let it stop you getting vital health care otherwise we give covid a different victory. Right now our waiting list for cancer care has rocketed to 2 million people. We need this not to be our story so get checked and attend screenings.
    Thanks to the staff for your professionalism, compassion and understanding.
