How To Deal With The Fear Of Recurrence

Come To Terms With Other Fears

Next » « Previous


Ronnie Kaye, a psychotherapist who specializes in helping people with a life-threatening condition, suggests that dealing with each of the following subjects can help a person cope with the fear of recurrence because each of them contribute to this fear:

  • Fear of death
  • Fear of dying
  • Mortality
  • Vulnerability questions about the purpose of life. 

If fear becomes overwhelming or keeps you from your daily activities or work, consider consulting a mental health professional. For the different types of professionals, click here. For information about choosing a mental health professional, click here.

One way to deal with fear is to create a "worry box." Create or set aside a box with a lid on it. Each morning, write your fears or worries on a piece of paper. Put the paper into the worry box and close the lid. If fear or worry strikes during the day, repeat the process.
