“I’ve been going through some intense scanxiety – cold fear of a looming scan…”
One of my clients had a very important scan coming up, and she wrote a deeply moving email describing her experience of scanxiety.
What an amazing word. The perfect description of what I have always thought of as one of the most difficult phases of healing from cancer: waiting for the next scan.
“I recognize some of the fear as the residue of past traumas – every scan I’ve had before this has revealed our worst fears… Some fear is rooted in love of self and life – a reminder of how much I want to protect my life, how much I want to live.”
Healing Touch and Reiki treatments have helped my clients stay sane and a little more grounded until the results come back. My clients are my heroes, and I am honored to be a part of their healing journey.
I am extremely happy to report that this client’s scan came back with very, very good news.
