7 STEPS TO MANAGING THE STRESS OF AN MPN CONDITION

Author: Voices Of MPN

When you’re living with a rare, chronic blood cancer like polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) or myelofibrosis (MF), stress can build up and your mood can be affected, making you feel anxious, sad, or depressed.

Knowing how stress is affecting you and communicating that to your Healthcare Professional is another way you can take charge of your health and well-being.

What else you can do to manage stress:

Make time for activities you enjoy

  1. Try to maintain a manageable daily routine that includes time for visits, activities, hobbies
  2. Plan time to spend with friends and family
  3. Take a walk or do some light gardening
  4. Read a book or listen to music
  5. Watch a movie that makes you laugh and lifts your spirits
  6. Consider meditation, yoga, or other activities that help you relax
  7. Consider spiritual outlets

Connect, share, and communicate

  • Talk to your Healthcare Professional team regularly about your mood and how it is affecting you
  • Don’t be shy about asking for help
  • Let a friend know how you are feeling
  • Join a support group to connect with others living with an MPN

Build your knowledge and share it

  • Gain a solid understanding of your MPN to discuss with your Healthcare Professional
  • Share what you’ve learned with your family and friends
  • Contact organizations that support people like you who are living with an MPN

Be sure to consult with your Healthcare Professional about your health and wellness concerns.
