How To Cope With Waiting For An Appointment Or Test Results

Use your mind to reframe what is happening

Next » « Previous


Just because you had a test, doesn't mean that you will get negative results.

Develop statements that are comfortable for you. For example: "My last scan was fine. There is no reason to expect a change with this one." or "I don't have cancer until I am told I have cancer."

It helps to stay in the present - in this precise moment. 

Also: remind yourself that no matter what happens, you have the coping skills to deal with it. You've dealt with life so far - there is no reason to think you won't be able to deal with whatever comes along.
