Living with ongoing illness
In can be devastating to be diagnosed with an ongoing illness that isn’t going to get better any time soon. Your entire life will need to change at this time to accommodate whatever it is you are suffering from, and you will have to deal with the fact that you may be feeling pain, or illness for this entire time. However, being diagnosed with an ongoing illness doesn’t mean that your life is over and that you can’t do anything, you just need to learn to adapt so that you can continue as normal as much as possible.
- Find out more about what you are suffering from. There is bound to be plenty of information online and in books about your condition, what it means for you and how it is likely to progress. The more you can find out about what you are suffering from the more likely it is that you will come to terms with it quickly.
- Remember that there will be good and bad days. On a bad day, it may be tempting to feel as though you will never get any better and to be angry and let down by what is happening to you. But remember that there will be good days as well when your illness doesn’t affect you at all.
- Talk to other people. See if you can get counselling or see a therapist about your illness so that you always have someone to talk to about how you are feeling. If not, talk to friends and family so that they can help you through what is happening, and simply listen to your frustrations.
