You’re exhausted from chronic medical stressors and wondering if things will ever get better.
Your life has dramatically changed since you received news from the doctor about your health. There are endless amounts of doctor’s appointments, medication regimens, and you’re tired, physically, mentally, and emotionally each day.
Around you, every one else looks healthy and happy. You can’t help but wonder why you have to go through all these procedures and changes in your body and in your life. All you want to do is to live life like everyone else.
You know your friends and family care about you, and yet it feels as if they just don’t get it. They say they will be there, but when the next surgery or procedure comes, they’re not. It’s disappointing and you find yourself feeling more and more isolated.
You want to be healthy again and find yourself struggling to make sense of it all. How do you balance management of these chronic health and medical stressors while also living a rich and fulfilling life? Just when you think you’ve adjusted to it, a new development arises and you find yourself feeling lost again.
Although you’re able to get through your days and make it to the next one, you can’t help but wonder if there could be something more to life. Something deeper and richer. You want to make sense of this pain. Will life ever feel normal again?
