Re: Anxiety

Tiffany, you are right to say the anxiety never ends. However I guess we learn some degree of acceptance, except for scan times! I agree with Tracy that physical activity is really helpful, and meditation is also worth a try. But basically we need to come to terms with uncertainty being a constant in our lives - and trying to make the most of whatever time we have. Best wishes..... Pam
