A long term illness makes life difficult. Every day is considered in terms of our health. As a patient, we face stress, frustration, anger and sometimes grief. These feelings and need for support are true for both the client and our support systems. Our physical and emotional issues can lead to isolation, guilt, and depression. The worry, financial issues and stress often affect our relationships, at times making that request for help difficult. This is where a professional may be of assistance, help you cope, and help you ask for what you need.
