22 Year Breast Cancer Survivor
Being diagnosed with cancer has to be one of the most devastating, debilitating, and depressing things you hear about from a healthcare professional. It does not mean however that you are going to die. When you are first diagnosed, at least for me that is, I can remember the fear I felt. Then I got mad and started asking questions such as, Why me, Why now. I am sure most people ask the same questions and feel that it is just not fair, and it isn’t fair at all. People always ask me how did you deal with it. My answer to this question is, think positive. This is not always easy to do but I truly believe that by doing so you will have a stronger chance to survive.
Thinking Positive When Diagnosed with Cancer
I just recently found a very interesting article about positive thinking and cancer and how thoughts and moods can affect the way in which the white cells defend or not defend. If you would like to read the article it can be found at New Approaches to Cancer (through positive self-help).
Cancer Support Groups
Support Makes All the Difference with Cancer
Having a cancer support group whether it is through family and friends or from a local community health group, center or church can be very helpful for those that are coping with cancer.
Hang in there, think positive, and FIGHT will all your might!
Live each day as if it were your last.
Hang in there, think positive and fight with all your might!
