Life Changing Diseases

Life can deal out both good and bad hands. Chronic illnesses are among life’s bad hands and can interfere and interrupt a person’s normal routines. 

It is extremely difficult to remain positive and upbeat when you or a family member needs to put life on hold in order to endure long hours of extensive tests, multiple consultations at the doctor’s office, perhaps visiting a second opinion specialist in another city, going through the stress and fear of surgery, a stay in a hospital, chemotherapy treatments, missed work or school, perhaps a lengthy recovery at home plus the added financial stress as the medical bills begin to mount up.

Not Everyone Has Help

Hopefully you are fortunate to have caring, sympathetic and loving family members that can assist with your care and needs. Too often this is not the case. Many people must face this type of troubling circumstance alone. These people are especially vulnerable to a variety of confidence-altering moods that can shake the foundations of their immortality and invincibility. People often express anger and denial that this can’t happen to them. Alcohol and opiates help with the stress and fear. The person’s mood is already low and thoughts of death can easily push the individual into a state of major depression and suicidal thoughts.

Common Combination

This combination of events is all too common in life and often overwhelming. Therefore, the person needs to be watched carefully. Excessive drinking is common. Opiates and other pain medications are highly addictive and deepen the depressed mood. Serious illness can cause people to lose the ability to care for life. If you even suspect the person is giving up on life, seek professional help immediately.

Nervous System Disruption

Certain specific diseases are associated with a disruption of the nervous system that can set depression in motion, If you, a family member or close friend have been diagnosed with any of the following diseases, discuss with their doctor, early on, the effect they may have on the person’s mood and behavior.
