I *knock on wood* haven't been diagnosed with cancer but I do live with a chronic illness and have had a bening brain tumour come and go through the years. Mt tips are probably super stupid but here they go nonetheless: For MRIs I like to pretend the sound is some weird futuristic techno music, it makes the hourse inside the machine (no contrast and contrast) go a bit faster. I also keep my eyes closed since mine requires a cage over my head. Iced gel packs on your neck, forehead, etc when having a bad migrain help along with meds. Drink a glass of water with one or two teaspoons of baking soda helps with reflux I can't eat gluten and have since found my pain levels have dimished (gluten promotes inflamation so it makes my symptoms worse) Sometimes I get sad over not being "normal" and I let myself feel that way for a little bit since the more you try to be upbeat 24/7 the more likely you'll explode one day. Just don't let the feelings consume you, let it out, cry if you can and then think of the things you're grateful for. This is is probably silly but having a comfortable mattress and pillow for YOU make a whole difference. It will depend on what you prefer so sometimes the fanciest stuff will actually suck for you. When you're in pain or not feeling good having a comfy place to lay down has proved to be super important -rest is essential for any illness! And last having a hobby like colouring, or embroidery or whatever you like to keep yourself occupied when your brain starts spiraling helps alot, same with music. You've got this Romee! And same to the other people I've read are going through the sucky c.
