Illness changes your life and worldview. A life-threatening illness or disability may upset a sense of trust, confidence, safety, and belief in a predictable future.
Some conditions with which I have helped others cope and adapt include:
Asthma and chronic pulmonary lung disease (COPD)
Gastrointestinal illness-- colitis and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Hypertension and heart disease
Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Pre and post-surgical stress, anxiety or depression
