Psychosocial Issues

CURE Staff
On social media, CURE® recently asked its readers to share how they cope with anxiety leading up to their next scans. Here, we share some of their responses.
 
Bonnie Annis
After a traumatic event, such as breast cancer, it's important for a person to self-monitor. Feelings of anxiety or depression can be debilitating, but there's no reason to suffer in silence.
Doris Cardwell
That sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach is familiar to those who have heard the words "you have cancer". Telling someone not to worry post treatment can be like telling them to not breathe. Listening is more productive than telling survivors not to worry.
Laura Yeager
Although I was never a member of a sorority in the traditional sense, having breast cancer has put me into a sorority of women (and a few men) and created lifelong friendships.
Danielle Ripley-Burgess
A colon cancer survivor reflects on receiving her first diagnosis as a high school student, and offers current students whose academic careers have been altered by COVID-19 some advice on how they'll get through the missed experiences.
Martha Carlson
A metastatic breast cancer survivor notes that It takes bravery to choose friends with cancer, but she stresses that the love and joy that comes with those friendships far outweigh the potential grief.
 
Steve Rubin
I asked fellow patients with cancer and survivors on Twitter for advice on coping strategies to combat "Scanxiety" and some suggested making a conscious attempt to not let anxiety ruin the days leading up to your next scan. I gave it a shot, and it worked. 
Khevin Barnes
One cancer survivor finds health and healing in the gift of music.
 
Barbara Tako
A 10-year breast cancer, and six-year melanoma survivor reassures other survivors that they are not alone if they are struggling with anxiety, depression or PTSD years after their cancer treatments have ended.
Khevin Barnes
As I walk around the senior community that I live in, I notice the stark reminders that life is an impermanent adventure.
