Do you live with a chronic condition such as Crohn’s, migraines, or IBS? Does somebody that you love face chronic illness?
Chronic symptoms can be debilitating and, in some cases, can be invisible to friends, family and co-workers. Pain, fatigue, anxiety, digestive issues, and other symptoms are not always visible to the naked eye.
Regardless of the severity of your condition, our goal is to help you live a full and meaningful life.
Chronic pain and illness can lead to depression
In some cases, the sense of loss, loneliness, and isolation that too often accompanies a chronic condition can lead to depression. In fact, depression is one of the most common complications of chronic illness.
If you recognize any of the signs of clinical depression, you should reach out for help. These signs include difficulty sleeping, loss of appetite, loss of interest in hobbies or activities, and overall lack of energy.
If you are depressed, consider treatment that includes therapy. In many cases, treatment for depression is most effective when medication and psychological therapy are used.
