The Physical and Emotional Toll
Living with a chronic illness is frustrating to deal with day to day and disrupts your whole life.
It’s not fair you have to go through this and no one seems to understand how you feel!
Others cannot always appreciate the physical and emotional effects, such as, tiredness, stress, depression, aches and pains that are often not visible.
It means having to adjust to the physical demands of the illness and deal with emotional ups and downs that seem to upset those around you.
There may be additional stresses, since chronic illness might change the way you work, play and interact with others.
It can feel hopeless.
Yes it is frustrating and I would love to help you find the root to your condition and get your life back.
Do I have a Chronic Illness/Disease?
A chronic illness or disease is one that sticks around for three months or more.
Many chronic diseases manifest gradually over-time, often years.
They have a combination of symptoms that range from skin rashes to headaches to bowel issues, making it seem like one issue may not be related to the other.
For example, a person may suffer from symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, reflux, and difficulty sleeping. These symptoms could be a sign that there is an underlining condition and multiple bodily systems are often affected.
Because there are so many different chronic illnesses out there, it is difficult to compile a comprehensive list of typical symptoms or signs for every chronic disease, here are a few;
Autoimmune disorders, including Crohn’s disease Multiple sclerosis, Lupus
Mood and anxiety disorders
Chronic illness isn’t limited to physical health conditions. Mental health disorders may also be considered chronic.
Many of the most common chronic conditions in the U.S. are the result of behaviors such as poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle. Unhealthy lifestyle choices contribute to years of chronic disease management and often also increased mortality.
