Group Description

This e-mail group addresses the emotional issues that some thyroid cancer survivors deal with. These may or may not be related to our thyroid cancer or its treatment. However, they still affect our lives.

Examples include:
-Day to day coping with life as a cancer survivor: learning to rely on hormone replacement instead of our body's own thyroid hormone, adapting to periodic testing, & other life disruptions.
-Mental health issues that may accompany a cancer diagnosis; e.g.: depression, fears, panic attacks, & how they affect our lives.
-Brain fog: inability to think quickly to solve problems, memory loss, & dealing with fatigue that affects our concentration or mood.
-Returning to work or school: coping with challenges of competition, meeting deadlines, continuing to perform.

This group offers a supportive setting in which to share our experiences and solutions. We aim to lessen feelings of isolation. We help each other build on our strengths and learn how to cope with our life changes since our diagnosis. We give encouragement and offer compassionate support. This group is not a therapy group or a form of professional treatment. We ask participants to seek help from their doctors for their individual medical and mental health needs.

All new members must be approved before joining. All posts will be approved for content by the group moderators before being posted to the listserv. This group is dedicated exclusively to supporting members who experience emotional and mental health issues that accompany living with Thyroid Cancer. Posters who have questions or comments about other aspects of thyroid cancer will be directed to an appropriate listserv. (See www.thyca.org for all ThyCa support listservs). By posting to this email support group, the poster understands and agrees that each email will be reviewed for content and any email may or may not be allowed to be posted in the sole discretion of the moderators.
