  1. I'm not worried at all. In fact, my worry is I won't get the booster in time, and I'll catch covid while my immunity from it has waned.
  2. There's no way that can be true. I don't believe it unless I can read it in the original study. Like I said, I've searched and I can find no such study.
  3. I find it odd that this doctor didn't suggest a different benzodiazepine. If he knew what he was doing, he'd know that you can't just suddenly stop taking them and not expect a massive increase in anxiety symptoms. You have to taper down. Wait, was "this person" even a doctor? I've googled to see if I can find the research article, and all I can find is that clonozepam is currently one of the recommended treatments for the anxiety that comes with being diagnosed with glioblastoma (or any cancer)! I'm a working scientist - I have a PhD in biochemistry - and I'd never take second-hand information about a research article from someone, people always get it wrong. I have to read it for myself.
  4. Just go tomorrow, get it over with instead of having another 6 weeks of worry.
  5. No way is that tiny amount of sun exposure going to cause skin cancer. You could take vitamin D supplements instead? I do.
  6. Kids get swollen lymph nodes all the time, if the doctor is going to look at it I wouldn't worry.
  7. Could you try a different benzodiazepine, like diazepam?
  8. Yes I hate horror movies, I avoid them like the plague.
  9. You've just reminded me that when I tried melatonin ages ago it seemed to help. I must get some more, my insomnia is crazy at the moment.
  10. Survived my lecture - and my burning sensations disappeared during it! Exhausted now because I've been awake since midnight.
  11. Not heard of this one, have you ever tried it?
  12. I do too, I read a couple of books about it while I was getting into the whole mindfulness thing and it really worked.
  13. If you've been vaccinated then you're safe, you might feel rough for a bit but that's it. Your immune system has already seen the virus and so knows how to fight it.
  14. Same for me last night. Going to be a lot earlier tonight, I'm shattered after spending the day with my nephews - it's the constant noise!
