The Single Best Way to Reduce Your Anxiety After a Breast Cancer Diagnosis

The Single Best Way to Reduce Your Anxiety After a Breast Cancer Diagnosis

No one tells you being diagnosed with cancer is as much an emotional battle as a physical battle. You try and act normal, but in the quiet moments, the fear mounts, and you are desperate for relief.

 

Fortunately, You’ve asked for a Fortify survivor mentor with Faith Through Fire. You pull out your phone and text your mentor, letting them know how you are feeling. You hit send and wait anxiously.  A moment later, you hear a ding and glance at your phone. You aren’t disappointed; the message staring back says, “I’m here, and it’s okay, I did it, and so can you!”

You text back and forth a few minutes, and soon you feel better, more at peace. You don’t respond to the last text your mentor sends because you’ve been distracted by your favorite show and no longer need her reassurance. You are okay now and feel comfortable knowing she’s just a text away.

Having a mentor isn't guaranteed to make you feel less sad but it could make you feel connected, supported and cared for. Isn't that worth pursuing?
