I have been thinking a lot about Control lately.
How the second you get diagnosed you lose control over your life.
It doesn’t matter if you are a control freak or not – we now lost control. We are not sure how we’re going to feel tomorrow morning, we’re not sure about what’s going to happen, what our options are, what we are supposed to do now, and what we should expect.
Unfortunately this loss of control is even slightly encouraged by the environment and system. Doctors do not really allow us to have control, the information we get is very limited, and only ever so slightly tailored to us… and it doesn’t have to be that way.
One of the things we need to understand is that there things we don’t have control over, but also things we do. Which treatment we deserve is one of them. We deserve full visibility to what treatments we can get and we deserve the right to choose what’s right for us. If we take back control of what we can, and what we deserve, this journey can be more tolerable, and potentially more successful.
This is why it is so important to learn as much as we can about the different treatments available.
One of the latest advanced treatments that’s been discussed much lately is CAR T/Cell Therapy, and there are dozens more out there
Here at TrialJectory we encourage all patients to learn and understand as much as possible about new treatments so patients REALLY understand their options, and are able to take back control of their life.
