Thanks for taking a few minutes to learn more about group counseling.
If you are having a hard time feeling connected with others since you’ve been diagnosed with your chronic illness, you’re in the right place.
Dealing With Chronic Illness In Group Counseling
Chances are that you likely interact with people who don’t understand what it takes to be you everyday, and that is a frustrating experience. You are no stranger to hearing people assume that you’re “lazy,” “wanting attention,” and “being dramatic” when talking about how your health affects you.
The experiences of a chronically ill person are different, and there are many pressures on you to fit into society’s expectations to be “productive” and “successful.” But you know that your journey is different, and you could use some support figuring out how to make your life work for you.
Ultimately you want to surround yourself with people who “get it” and won’t dismiss you when talking about your struggles with your health.
I get it. I’m glad you’re here.
