Consciously avoid harmful stress-relief behaviors
Stress on top of lymphoma can affect your decision-making abilities when it comes to treatment, and can make what is already a struggle into an internal war. For these reasons, learning to deal with the stress that comes from lymphoma diagnosis and treatments in a constructive manner is more important than many people may think it is. A common reaction for people suffering from chronic stress is to engage in destructive or typically risky behaviors. These behaviors can include smoking, drinking, and other unhealthy behaviors. These are extremely unhealthy ways to deal with stress, and will just contribute to the weakening of your body.
