"Life is too short. I can't control everything in my life. Trying to is exhausting!!"
- Member of MyMyelomaTeam
When first faced with a myeloma diagnosis, a common fear is a lack of control over our health. How could our bodies betray us? How do we grab the reins back and fix the situation? Living with a chronic disease forces us to recognize what we can and cannot control.
Members on MyMyelomaTeam have various strategies for letting go of control and fear, including:
Here are recent conversations from MyMyelomaTeam members:
"Good Morning everyone - chemo day. It's great to know tomorrow I will feel like a new person."
"I'm getting ready for my 2nd injection. It's almost scary how good I feel. Actually more energy. Absolutely no nausea. Hope week 2 is as good as week 1."
