Those three ugly words…you have cancer!

Finding out you have cancer can be overwhelming for you as well as friends and family. People often don’t know what to say. Some patients keep it to themselves, others need to let everyone know, especially if you are not your normal self. There are no set rules, whatever works for you.

As you learn more about your diagnosis you will go through many different emotions from feeling sad, angry, or afraid. You will also question “Why me?”  It’s okay to feel the way you do. Your treatment will also affect your emotions.

Too many times others can make to all about them and not about how you feel. It becomes about how sad they are and you end up comforting them. Admit to yourself how you feel and just let everyone around you cope with your decisions. After all you are the one going through the diagnosis and treatment.
