Healing and Dealing-Living with a Chronic Illness

Living with a chronic illness presents numerous challenges. Often it shakes a person to their core. How an individual deals with a chronic illness depends upon many variables. Variables such as; social, emotional and financial support, age of onset, prognosis, is the illness degenerative in nature, past and present coping skills, family values and culture, employment options to name a few.
 
A diagnosis of a chronic illness brings loss. Not only loss in the present, but often anticipated loss. It is a natural response to feel the loss of present and future as one imagined or planned.
 
This blog is about the natural progression of feelings which ebb and flow. Healing and dealing is a process. It is a circular experience with many facets to explore and endure. At first it is an intellectual process which slowly melts into a heartfelt experience.
 
Drawing upon my clinical experience and research. You will find over the next few weeks, tips, understanding, resources, stress reduction techniques and general information. Please read with an open heart. I will make every effort to see and hear you clearly so do write your responses.
 
In closing this first post, take a moment after reading this to close your eyes, take a deep breath in through your nose to the count of 7, hold for 4 and breath out through your mouth to the count of 8. Rest a few seconds and do this breathing exercise two more times. Our breath is our greatest gift. Honor it as well as honor yourself.
 
In breath,
Carline

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
