"Life is too short. I can't control everything in my life. Trying to is exhausting!!" - member of MyBCTeam
When first faced with a breast cancer diagnosis, a common fear is a lack of control over our health. How could our bodies betray us? How do we grab the reins back and fix the situation? Living with a chronic disease forces us to recognize what we can and cannot control.
Members on MyBCTeam have various strategies for letting go of control and fear, including:
1) using guided imagery to visualize letting go
2) opening up and trusting others
3) organizing or cleaning the house
4) reaching out for support from other members on MyBCTeam
Here are recent conversations from MyBCTeam members:
