Tip of the Day

Author Susan Milstrey Wells writes, “The most important fact we need to know about the strong emotions that accompany chronic disease is that everybody has them. At one time or another, we’ve all felt angry, sad, depressed, frightened, ashamed, or lonely. By and large, we’ve learned to manage the physical changes that come with chronic illness. The more difficult part is knowing how to respond emotionally to something that becomes limiting and that is uncomfortable all the time, according to Dr. Ernesto Vasquez of Columbus, Ohio, a psychiatrist in private practice who has fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.”
