In brief: Knowledge beats fear

Do you have a diagnosis, or are you afraid of getting one? What terrifies you - pain, weakness, dying, effects on loved ones, something else? Talk about your fears with someone who cares, and learn about what to expect in your situation.
Ask docs & rns medical & procedure questions, therapist or spiritual leader - life questions, loved ones - personal questions. You don't have to face it alone!
