#AskShannon about coping with cancer, staying positive
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) —
Today's question comes from Jean.
"I've recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and I'm having a really difficult time staying positive and optimistic. I'm really surprised at how scared I am! Any suggestions?"
Of course you're scared. That's completely normal. Give yourself time to process the emotions and reach out to safe people to do that.
It's important to stay positive. Most of us are uncomfortable in the "I don't know" realm.
Allow yourself to be in the "I don't know" realm and choose to believe in a positive outcome, reach out to others who have gone through breast cancer. One place could be www.livelikecrazy.org.
