In this paralyzing moment, whatever was consuming your life minutes before suddenly recedes far into the background as you face this completely new medical diagnosis and seemingly terrifying territory
Finding out that you or a family member has a serious new medical diagnosis can be a huge emotional shock. Having no close support people around you can turn the shock into a crisis, leaving you with feelings of isolation and abandonment.
Talk through a new medical diagnosis…
Counseling provides the opportunity to talk about the negative feelings related to the illness, the medical procedures, and the inevitable financial strain. Fears about the future can be kept in perspective, restoring some confidence about moving forward. If you are away from family and friends, use your counseling sessions to talk through any concerns about what to tell them and when. Learn to manage their anxieties as well as your own.
