    STESS FREE LIVE??!!???

    My doctor told me it is vital to avoid stress at all costs. I am getting my kidney yanked, might have spread to my liver, and my girlfriend just left me, and is with a new guy already. HOW do you stay stress free??

      I agree, stress is a part of life. I did everything I could to reduce my financial obligations, sold my car and bought a cheap car with cash, paid off my second and all my credit cards and started with a clean slate. It was hard but reduced a lot of stress. Course it depleted my bank account but my total expenses were reduced by $1000 a month. Wow what a relief. Money and health were my two biggest stresses, I can relieve one and concentrate on the other. For me it worked. I am very fortunate that my wife was the best caregiver a person could ever asked for. Again I am lucky and did not have that stress. I am now on SS Disability and can live within that income. Good luck, I believe that reducing my stress helped me to get my cancer into remission.

      Number 1) forget about the girlfriend get a cat. 2) take a deep breath (breathing exercises are great for pain and stress relief. 3) counseling. Does your Health Center offer counseling? or better still if they have a medically certified hypnotist. 4) check out your local YMCA my local Y has five different programs for cancer survivors, one of the programs is an art therapy program. 5) when the "what if's pop up, replace them with "what if I am cured?" and what if I meet a beautiful bald lady in the chemo suite?' 6) If you are one of those people who need stress in your life. Take heart the political campaigns are just beginning you can replace all that cancer stress with all that political stress. And then there is always global warming, near earth asteroids, and super volcanoes.
