Managing Chronic Illness

Living with a chronic illness can be a stressful challenge. You may struggle to stay comfortable, even while taking multiple medications. Each new symptom or side effect that develops can set off a wave of worry and uncertainty. Besides keeping your physical symptoms under control, you may other concerns, such as:

  • managing medicines
  • coordinating appointments with doctors
  • understanding instructions from doctors and other caregivers
  • getting to and from medical appointments
  • losing independence
  • needing more help with personal care
  • knowing what to expect from the illness
  • managing stress and/or family concerns
  • paying for care
