Being Diagnosed With A Terminal Illness

No one wants to go through the routine of doctor visits that involves a illness diagnosis that might reveal bad and dreaded news about their health and this includes people who, during a routine exam, they are discovered to have tumors or cancer growing inside of them. Many times such a diagnosis would mean their life will be cut short by the terminal diseases.

This sounds harsh but one of the strongest things that you have is your mind. It is one of your greatest assets to making a recovery or even attempting one. While it is important to have routine screenings and to get the tests you need to effectively fight off illness it is important not to buy into these diseases too much. While cancers, especially certain types of them, can come with a grim prognosis there is something to be said about keeping your head in the game.

Most people have heard of stories about someone inflicted with a dreaded disease, who simply accepted this word as their final fate and soon died. They retreat from living and allow the disease, even with medical treatment, to be victorious and make dying the end result. Many times after a diagnosis is given, a dark spiral downwards will escalate in the midst of receiving treatments intended to heal, works inversely, actually stealing life instead of saving life.

In the patient realm, it is very common to see very very few people pay any attention to the diagnosis and even less who put up a fight from the start. If there is a straw of life saving hope in the saving techniques that could save the life, the toxicity of the drugs and treatments will usually suck out and destroy the body’s strength, allowing death to prevail. Watching the body and the fight to live hang in the balance is not a pretty picture for anyone to watch.

Good advise will dictate a zeal for life and always have timely routine medical check-ups. Early detection has proven to be life saving. No one knows when death will find its way into our life, but knowing that we have the ability to accept or reject someone ‘s projected life span for us is up to the individual. Start today by living life to the fullest. Accept nothing except a good report as the only final acceptable report. A second opinion could very well add years to your life.
