Serious Medical Illnesses
Being diagnosed with a serious or chronic medical condition like cancer, heart disease or diabetes is very stressful. We worry about work, finances, our family and our future. Many times we can improve our prognosis if we are are able to make positive lifestyle changes like changing our diet, exercising more or quitting smoking which are not always easy changes to make in the best of times, much less while we are coping with a serious illness. Even if we have very supportive family and friends, we may be reluctant to turn to them for support as we share our fears about our health challenges. Specializing in health psychology, Dana Nolan, has over 15 years experience working with patients and caregivers as they cope with health issues. If you live in the north Orlando area, contact Dana at Healthy Living Counseling for more information about counseling.
