- Are you struggling to adjust to your medical diagnosis?
- Are your emotions getting in the way of your recovery and lifestyle?
- Are you lashing out at the people you love?
A chronic illness, disease or injury can take a tremendous toll on someone’s daily life.
For example, you might feel anxious or irritable for being forced to be inactive. You might feel shame or regret around losing your independence. Or you may feel hopeless and frustrated at not being able to do the things that used to come so easily.
Emotions can run high if the prognosis is uncertain or confusing. That stress may cause someone to lash out at family and friends, which can put a big strain on relationships. Some people turn to alcohol or drugs to numb their pain, creating an entirely new problem.
The therapists at Vista can help you cope with the challenges associated with your medical issue. Remember, you are not alone.
