YOUR CANCER YOUR LIFE - RIGHT TO CONTROL ACCESS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION (PRACTITIONER)
|The moment a practitioner gives information to a third person without your permission he or she is no longer treating you as a responsible adult person. This is wrong. If you allow a practitioner to do this, you are putting yourself into a helpless, dependent position and giving up responsibility for yourself. It might seem the easiest way out but, believe me, it's not in the long run. ,„,ù
You may know that your practitioner has already had discussions with friends or relatives in your absence. They are probably doing this in a well-meaning but misguided attempt to 'protect' you. Unfortunately the reality remains regardless of whether or not you know about it. Hiding the truth from you won't make it go away—it will just make the whole situation harder for you to grapple with.
fe$ guarantee that if you are in this situation your imagination is running wild: 'It must be really terrible if they can't tell me.' I say again—your imagination will usually come up with something much worse than the truth. If you insist on being told, you are likely to get a new lease of life. You will be able to direct your energies positively into battling with a real, rather than an imaginary, situation. You will be able to share your fears and concerns freely with your loved ones. Your friends or relatives who have been given the information will feel great relief when the heavy burden is lifted from their shoulders. They also will then be able to direct their energy much more positively.
