Managing Scanxiety | Episode 032

Posted on January 9th, 2019

Universe, what’s good?! Welcome to the first episode 0f 2019! What do you think about the potential name change? Please sound off in the comments! :) 

The podcast is now on YouTube, so please subscribe there as well!

In this solo episode, I talk about a recent cancer scare that occurred last month. Knowing the statistics, an Oncologist appointment was booked and he recommended an ultrasound. If you have found yourself in this situation, you know how scary that is. Statistics haven't exactly been on my side, so facing a recurrence crosses my mind every day. 

Since nobody should feel this kind of terror, this episode is focused on managing feelings of "scanxiety," which is the anxiety brought on by testing involved with cancer treatment and diagnosis. Tune in as I break down five ways to manage this.

If you are a stage 0-3 breast cancer patient within the last five years, ages 18-45, English-speaking, and not undergoing ovarian suppression, please contact MiHealthMiChoice@umich.edu as they want to hear from you! For your time and effort, they are offering a $25 cash reward. Don't miss out!

If you would like to support the podcast, please rate, comment and share! Is it time to get your shit together? January 30th we will have the co-host of The Art of Getting Your Sh*t Together Jena Gribble!
