Going through cancer can be an emotional roller coaster, with many ups and downs. This is often the case for the person who has cancer but it can also be true for the people who are close to them.
When you are supporting someone with cancer (or waiting for diagnosing), you may have many different feelings. They may come and go and be stronger at some times than others. Some people believe they should ignore their feelings to focus on the needs of the person with cancer. But it’s hard to try to block your feelings for a long time. You will need to take care of yourself during what can be a very stressful time in your life. Paying attention to your feelings is an important part of this and it will help you support the person with cancer better.
There are feelings of shock, finding the news difficult to take in, the possible diagnosis makes you fear every single outcome. Anxiety, sadness, anger, guilt.. all mixed.
Choose to feed your faith and your fears will starve to death. Choose to help, to be grateful and to be KIND! Let’s make CANCER just a word and not a sentence.
