Grief is a journey that can be unfamiliar, uncertain, and unpredictable. However, it is a path that you don't have to travel alone, and it can be helpful to have a guide.

Experiencing anxiety can feel isolating, even when surrounded by caring people. You're wearing a smile on the outside; but on the inside, you feel overwhelmed. You worry that your stress is impacting those you love. You've tried different strategies to reduce it. They aren't helping. Deep inside you know there's a better way to live, but you're not sure how to do it. The idea of going to therapy feels vulnerable, but you're willing to try it at this point. You just want to feel better.

You just don't know what to do anymore. You're not even sure if therapy works, but you know you've got to do something different. You've tried to figure it out on your own and you feel stuck. Therapy can help if you're willing to put in the work, learn new skills and commit to using them. Yes, you can actually recover from anxiety, phobias and even traumatic experiences. And this is more than just learning to live with a psychological limp.

No one is an expert more on your life than you. However, sometimes inviting in trusted support helps you get perspective on your fears, disappointments, and confusion about next steps in life. No matter the season of life, asking for help is both courageous and what moves you forward. Your resiliency and your strengths are how you navigate through life’s challenges. You and your loved ones are not a diagnosis; being human is not a flaw but a strength to be honored. If you are trying to figure out if therapy is right for you, check out: NPR Life Kit: Start Therapy (https://one.npr.org/?sharedMediaId=975685219:975723299).

Being diagnosed with a chronic illness &/or acquiring a disability can brings dramatic life change for you and your loved ones. A new prognosis, sudden trauma, congenital health condition, or the gradual onset of a life with imposed limits can bring isolation, overwhelm, & clueless as you seek to figure out how you will navigate your new “normal." Like most people who fall ill or encounter disability, you have no blueprint for how to move forward to recover a meaningful life for yourself.
