After years of scientific research Dr David Spiegel has found a way to face life-threatening illness. Based on the vital relationship between attitude and survival, this book reveals how, by confronting the fear of dying, it is possible to reduce it. With compassion and conviction the author handles weathering the diagnosis, through accepting and responding to symptoms and treatment and shows how each stage can be made emotionally comfortable. A mixture of mind, medicine and human support can not only alleviate physical pain but prolong and add to the quality of life. By welcoming the help of friends, by self-expression and interaction with others a paralyzing sense of survival can be turned into one of active living.
