It's up to YOU!

To be an ambassador for your health, you must be action-oriented and proactive, because no one is going to be as invested in your own health and healing as YOU. This is not to say that you need to trek your journey alone; relationships and a support team are crucial to healing, and wonderful reputable resources exist to help you along the way, including the My Journey, My Choices website and the accompanying links and tools.

 This section of the website is intended to help you develop self-advocacy skills and take action in developing and executing an integrative healthcare plan. Explore the following pages to learn strategies for successful long-term illness management and decision making and to reflect on your personal healthcare goals and develop a plan for executing them. The Your Healing Planner© is a comprehensive action tool for making integrative healthcare decisions and putting them into practice to optimize your healing.

Cry, wail, scream, hop up and down, punch your pillow, blame yourself, sob, blame everybody else, rail against the universe, attempt to write your obituary, and/or whatever else you need to do. At some point, though, you are going to have to face it.

It’s time to make some choices. You have to DO SOMETHING.
