Enhance the Quality of Your Life
Living with chronic illness has a deep impact on not only the individual inflicted but all those surrounding them. It leaves no area of life untouched. Although we always want to be looking for possible cures and methods to heal, for some conditions complete healing is not a possibility, and even when it is, healing is a process that takes time. Our lives may be turned upside down at times and our coping abilities pushed to the limit.
We are likely to face crises, loss, pain, grief, conflict, disruption, excess stress, uncertainty, and even questions about identity and the meaning of life. If left unmanaged, chronic illness has the potential to greatly degrade our quality of life, rob us of personal power, deteriorate self-esteem and destroy relationships.
The most effective way to manage and reduce the impact that chronic illness has on our lives is to develop effective coping skills that address the limits we now face. As someone who lives with the challenges of chronic illness every day, I am quite familiar with the challenging terrain, and as a mental health professional, I know how important it is to address these issues head-on before they consume us.
