Following on from recent posts in another thread I would like to ask for tips on dealing with the inevitable anxiety that comes with living with a relapsing remitting type illness such as NHL.
I doubt whether anyone has it all together on this one including myself. I find mindful exercises that keep me in the present or bring me back to it when I am drifting into worry about the future, are helpful.(Can I suggest a simple and straightforward book that I have found useful: The Five Minute Meditator by Eric Harrison. It's written in plain English and has no spiritual references, just practical tips for switching your mind into the present that can work for anyone.)
Anyway- to get back to my question - any tips for dealing with relapse/progression anxiety?
