If you suffer from a chronic illness, it can feel like no one understands your situation and be difficult to talk about your feelings. However, bottling your feelings up won't lead to better health. 7 Cups offers online counseling for illnesses. When you're finding it difficult to cope with your illness, please reach out to us to offer support and guidance.
With chronic illnesses, some days are good, some days are bad. Whether a treatment isn't working or if your illness is flaring up and causing pain, the bad days are never easy and can cause a lot of angst. It's not uncommon for people with chronic illnesses to face stressors that can impact their mental health, and these frustrations can show up in other areas of your functioning. Dealing with your illness may increase the chances of experiencing anxiety, depression, and more. That's why seeking therapy is so helpful. It provides you with a healthy outlet for your frustrations and can help give you a way to cope with your emotions.
If you're dealing with a mental health disorder along with your chronic illness, it can be even more challenging to stay healthy. In fact, in many cases your mental health issues can impact your ability to cope effectively with your illness, creating a cycle that becomes hard to break out of. Just like it's important to take your medication and follow doctor's orders to deal with chronic illness symptoms, it's also important to maintain your emotional health to handle your illness in the healthiest way possible.
When your chronic illness is overwhelming you, you don't have to deal with it on your own. Let the online counselors at 7 Cups be your support system. We can listen and give advice on how to live the healthiest lifestyle and how you can better live with your chronic illness.
