Here is what is covered in this episode:

  • When you go through treatment, you get worries that pop up in your head
  • It starts with something small like an ache or a pain and then somehow you start thinking about something awful then it spirals out of control until you can’t stop thinking about it
  • I believe it’s because we lose so much control with cancer things just seem to come out of nowhere
  • So the key to get your power back and that starts with looking at what is within your control
  • It seems like you can’t do anything about it, but when you break it down, it turns out that you have control or influence over most things
  • 1 thing beyond your control is whether the treatment has worked… Everything else is up to you:
  • How much you know about what’s happening
  • How you deal with worry
  • Dealing with treatment, what to expect and how to manage it better
  • Your support network
  • Life around cancer
  • Your recovery after treatment
