Thank you very much for your post. My battle is with metastatic Chondrosarcoma, a rare bone cancer. When it metastasizes, it moves into the lungs. So far, the latest drug trial I'm on is keeping things at bay. As you described, the panic seems to like coming for a visit in the middle of the night. I call it a visit from the Dementors-the creepy characters from the Harry Potter series. Meditation, reading, listening to music and your other suggestions are all great ideas. They help me keep visits from the Dementors suitably short. Thanks for the post and continued good luck on your journey.
