Living with cancer: 5 tips for facing things you can’t control

I’m wired not to worry too much about something I cannot control.  For example, I automatically ignore any concerns about being inside an imaging device and then having to wait for the results to come through.  For me, I need to get the scan and I cannot control the results.
