It's natural for survivors to fear future traumas. Living in a world that offers little control over what can, will and does happen to you can add to and increase levels of anxiety. One way to reduce those feelings -- and offer yourself more control -- is to think through your advanced directives. How do you want things to go if a trauma occurs and you lose the ability to effectively communicate your wants, desires and needs? 

Expert Leah Sharrock, RN, BSN, CHPN, is a field educator at Hospice of Palm Beach County and joins host Michele Rosenthal to discuss how to be in control even when everything spins out of control.
