Support

It may seem difficult but it’s best to acknowledge, experience and talk about how you feel. You may prefer to talk to family, friends, a member of your healthcare team or other patients in a support group. A support or self-help group can be a good place to talk with others who have dealt with similar problems, to learn how they are coping and to share your feelings and experiences.
