Tips on How to Deal With the Mental Struggles of Cancer or Chemotherapy

Talk, talk, talk, cry, listen and talk some more.
Support groups are key!
Stay positive, fight like a brave
Pray, hang with good friends, don't stop living, mediatate and exercise, trust God.
lots of quiet rest
Rest, and the rest I am trying to figure out, as I am suffering from terrible depression.
You have to find a support system that is best for you! I have found that blogging on here has helped me because I am talking to people that have been there and done that! Most important is take it day by day or hour by hour when you have to and do not feel like you HAVE to do something for others, you are the one that is sick!
Prayer. Know that you are never alone unless you choose to be.
I have no ideal because i am struggling my self,
Have a support team that lets you laugh, get angry, or whatever you're experiencing. Have to be around people who can give you unconditional love. My belief also is that prayer is a powerful peace maker.
You will get through it and you will finally see the true value of life
Surround yourself with positive people and those that believe you can succeed! Do not let anyone take away your right to feel what you feel, You have the right to,vent,cry,breakdown just remember that the people that believe you can will allow you this right and encourage you to get back up and fight again!
Reach out to others, help others, do things you enjoy.
Pray, even if you don't know how.
Do Yoga; deep breathing; join this blog
Talk to someone supportive; I pray alot and keep in constant contact with my family and friends.
Just breathe. Take it one day at a time. Set up things to look forward to and nurture yourself- for me my diagnosis of cancer has given me the time to simply learn and grow and be more in touch with my truth and desires.
try to stay as active as you can tolerate, let people do things for you
read good books, talk to GOD
Journal your cancer journey, it helps cope.
Treat it with courtesy but don't get too close...
Just keep smiling no matter what.
Talk about it with someone you trust... it's a lot harder to bear the weight of it all by yourself than to just let it out once in a while.
