Emotions and Cancer (eBook)
Everyone with cancer copes in their own way. The diagnosis may cause you to feel a range of strong emotions, such as fear, anger, disbelief, sadness, guilt, loneliness, loss of control or distress. Each person has their own way of coping, and these are all natural reactions to such significant life-changing news. A cancer diagnosis can also affect relationships with family, friends and carers, so this booklet provides practical tips about how to talk to others about your diagnosis, your treatment and how you’re feeling. You’ll find some suggestions for working together to adjust to these challenges.
