It is normal to think that when facing a medical emergency positive news regarding your health could ease anxiety and stress. For me, personally, I was amazed that following the initial excitement of positive news there was an “down” feeling set in. It was like the good news had been too to handle. It was an odd reaction and after my thoughts about it, I got the idea to write this piece. Who ever thought that positive news can bring nothing but positive feelings?
It is a problem because it creates stress and anxiety. When you’re diagnosed with a severe or life-threatening condition, the main priority is treatment. There is a hope that treatment will work or at least there’s a hope for it to be. However, this is just an initial step in the process.
The doctors will eventually check to determine whether the treatment is effective or it is not. The anticipation and anticipation of that first test is difficult and emotionally. In the end, your loved ones and family are also doing exactly the same process… just waiting. The shared experience could seem like a sense of comfort or it feels like you’re accountable for their emotions too, or someplace between. The anticipation builds up nervous energy as well as negative projections and a feeling of guilt for what others might be feeling.
You get good news! The treatment is effective. The relief that comes from the treatment is felt by all. There is joy anticipation, joy, and celebration of being healthy. However, the waiting game begins with the next test and subsequent marker to measure your wellbeing. The results of the next test are to follow. It could be positive news, or maybe you’ll receive bad news.
The excitement increases. Your loved ones and you feel anxious, at risk, and possibly exhausted from the scenario that you are aware will continue until the health crisis is resolved. The cycle repeats and the anticipation grows more intense, especially in the case of a yo-yoing between bad and good information.
Now I can understand what it means to feel the “down” feelings after good news. The anticipation fire is lit for you and the people around you. Expectations lead to anticipation which can cause stress, anxiety and other emotional reactions. For best feelings a good news is always important.
The feeling of being down after hearing positive news can also be a way to protect yourself from the yo-yo effect that comes with the cycle of negative and positive news. If you aren’t overly excited, then you won’t feel as bad when the news is negative (or neutral) (more to wait for).
If you’re among people who feel accountable for other people’s feelings, you might not have the joyous experience. Being sluggish or unmotivated after positive news can shield your from disappointment, safeguards you from anger and shields you from any future predictions about your health result.
Now you understand the mechanism and the process that causes anticipation, and is the reason for negative or neutral emotions when you hear good news. Do you feel it is okay to deal with information about your health with this approach? Absolutely! There isn’t a wrong or right with feelings.
Every person handles each in their own manner. A friend of mine told me that remaining neutral in the face of bad and good information is healthy. There are no big changes or downs. This allow the body to remain relaxed and in a healing state. The cycle and the process of coping with health issues is exactly an ordinary process, the process… it’s your life.
Being present also helps reduce the need for anticipation. This means being aware of what’s happening in the present, instead of contemplating what been happening in the past, and making projections of the future. take place in the future.
