Topic: Issues and example of a thesis
July 17, 2019 / By Harriett Question:
Whenever I look up people who died of horrible cancers at a young age, It always terrifies me. The general thesis is- It's spontaneous, random, can happen to anyone at any time for no reason at all.
For example Andy Whitfield (spartacus) died from a very agressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He was in perfect shape, athletic, tanned, great diet, only 40.
How can people live with these thoughts and not be depressed and scared every single minute? My anxiety over this issue is so bad that every time I see an apple computer, it reminds me of cancer. Not just cancer, but one that is very unlikely to be cured.
People tell me the only way I can get over this fear is to "live every day like its your last". Well if that were true, I would be crying and screaming every day, because most of us do not have the money to live like that.
How do you deal with the fact that this can happen at any time and even if you were to get a full body scan every year, you could still come down with a terrible aggressive form just weeks the screenings?
I just know in 10-20 years our preventative screening measures will become so advanced (hopefully), and living in this very time is such a risk.

I worry about cancer at least once per day but if it had got this bad maybe it's time to see a counsellor or therapist about this issue. it sounds like you need some help putting it into some perspective.
That makes perfect sense. While you're sitting around worrying about cancer, the anxiety could cause a heart attack.
I was also just thinking this lol
I think everyone is terrified about being a victim of cancer. The word "Cancer" just scares everyone in general.
u have stress and ur letting it take administration of ur life. no you could actually comprehend what is going to ensue interior the destiny, inspite of the incontrovertible fact that that's going to ensue no count number if u worry approximately it or no longer... so why no longer purely stay ur life. yet another project is that oftentimes issues are worse in our heads. the phobia is of the unknown, like the say. whilst something undesirable does ensue, we cope. btw, I actual have cancer and that i think sorry for U.
