I don't know how many guys on here have said they wish they had known more before they decided to have treatment.
I also don't know how many men and women we have heard on here who have been in a state of panic, complaining about
not being able to sleep, or function becasue of worry.
Much of this comes, (myself included) by not stopping, and slowing down, and approaching the issue of PC logically. Once they are able to read and discover a lot of the facts about
PC, and realizing that it ios not an immediate death sentence and that most men will die of other causes, theor quality of life will improve, prior to treatment and after treatment.
Telling someone to slow down, no matter what their personality type whether it be A or Z is still good advice in my opinion. It is probably true that type "A" folks will disregard it and bust on ahead, but it still doesn't invalidate the advice.
No one has never said to not read and investigate until the cows come home, in fact, quite the opposite. We also will respond to as many questions as a guy can post on here, all in the spirit of alleviating panic and distress. But again i would say, slow down, get the facts, make your decsions, and then deal with the events . Panic and hurry has never helped anyone.
