Take care of your mental health throughout treatment

If your feelings are very overwhelming and you're feeling sad or anxious, talk with your doctor about your emotions. Anxiety and depression are really common in cancer patients and should not be overlooked simply because you are sick. These need to be treated and you may be able to utilize therapy to help you get through this difficult time. Don't be ashamed or feel bad about yourself if you feel this way; it's completely normal and best to get some professional help to manage these emotions.
