Questions to ask

Ask your health care providers questions about distress. Being informed will help you make decisions.

ask your own questions.

It may help to prepare questions before your visit. At the visit, repeat the answers given to you to

confirm what you heard. You can also take notes and record your visit so you can later review what

was said. Many people bring their spouse, partner, friend, or other family member for support.

2. Will my distress just go away in time?

3. How can you help me?

4. How can I help myself?

5. What help will my insurance cover?
