It is impossible to separate mind and body – each impacts the other in many ways. With chronic health issues, emotions and thoughts can create additional distress. In reverse, the mind can often exert influence on physical conditions. Conditions like Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, chronic lung or heart disease, cancer, or HIV/AIDS, all present significant challenges.
No one plans on being in an accident or having a critical illness. But, when it happens it can change your life. Not only is there physical recovery, there are emotional issues that also need to be addressed.
It is so much easier to get hooked than unhooked. Whether it is smoking, drinking, gambling, or eating, sometimes our behaviors can control our lives.
