Our physical health and wellness is important to the way we live our everyday lives, and compromise to our health can be daunting and frightening. Receiving a new diagnosis of a chronic, debilitating or terminal illness such as Diabetes, End-stage renal disease, Cancer, HIV, Neurological disorder/autoimmune disorder, stroke, or heart disease can be life-altering experience. This can apply to a loved one receiving a new diagnosis, too, and how to cope with those emotions, while trying to be a support system.
It can be difficult for individuals with chronic medical conditions to adjust to their diagnosis, manage treatment regimens, and open up to family and friends about their situation – all while trying to make sense of the wide range of emotions they are experiencing. We are here to support you through your journey, and can help you navigate these changes, process emotions, and develop coping skills, thus allowing you to communicate better and live a healthier, happier life.
