Living with a chronic medical illness isn’t something any of us plan for. You might have heart disease in the family, or high blood pressure or depression but if you’re fit and well, you’re probably hoping it won’t affect you.
Many of our chronic health conditions are associated with a higher risk of anxiety or depression. Just ask anyone living with chronic pain how that makes them feel.
That’s why it’s time to adopt a more holistic approach to allay any stress or mental mood challenges in addition to reducing or even reversing (where possible) the associated chronic health condition.
