Coping with Emotions of Myelofibrosis


Your myelofibrosis diagnosis affects the way that you feel, think and act. Just as you need to take care of your body, you need to take care of your emotions.

Common emotions you may experience:
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Irritability 
  • Grief and loss for your old life (“loss of normal”)
  • Helplessness
  • Frustration
  • Fear

There are many information and resources available to assist you in managing your emotions and wellbeing. Click here for some tips on managing your emotions and here for more information on emotional wellbeing. 

We also encourage you to contact the Cancer Support Community Helpline at 888-793-9355 for further information and help in finding resources to help you cope with your diagnosis or the diagnosis of a loved one. CSC’s Helpline is staffed Monday through Friday from 9 am to 8 pm EST by licensed mental health professionals. All services are at no cost to callers. Counselors can provide information, resource referral, psychosocial support, access to Open to Options treatment decision support, referrals to CSC programs, affiliates, and online groups.
