THE THEME OF THE DAY:
The Chronic Illness:
Living with a chronic illness (also called chronic) poses new challenges to a person. Learning to cope with these challenges is a long process - not something that achieves the overnight. But understand what you think and participate actively in your health care will help you meet those challenges. Many people find that taking an active role in the treatment of a chronic health problem helps you feel stronger and more prepared to face many difficulties and trials that life holds.
What is a chronic disease?
There are two types of disease: acute and chronic. The acute illness (such as a cold or flu) are usually relatively short duration. However, chronic health problems are long term (the term "chronic" comes from the Greek word Chronos, meaning time).
The fact of having a chronic disorder does not necessarily have a serious illness or that may endanger a person's life - although some chronic diseases such as cancer and AIDS can do. Chronic diseases also include conditions like asthma, arthritis and diabetes. Although the symptoms of a chronic illness may go away with medical care, usually the person continues to suffer from the underlying disease - even though the treatment they receive can mean that you feel healthy and feel well much of the time.
Each chronic disease has its own symptoms, treatment and outcome. Except for the fact that they are relatively durable, the various chronic diseases not necessarily resemble each other in other respects. Most people with chronic diseases do not think of themselves as a "chronically ill", but as someone who suffers from a specific disorder - such as asthma, arthritis, diabetes, lupus, sickle cell disease, the hemophilia, leukemia, or the specific disease they have.
If you have a chronic illness may not only affect you physically, but also emotional, social and sometimes even financially. The way in which a person is a chronic disease affects depends on the particular disease and the impact it has on your body, disease severity and type of treatment required. Accept and adapt to the reality of chronic disease requires time, but young people who are willing to learn about their illness, seek and accept support from others and to actively participate in health care generally pass the coping process.
The process of coping
Most people go through several stages in the process of assuming that suffer a chronic illness and learning to live with it. When a person is diagnosed with a chronic illness in particular, may feel many things. Some people feel vulnerable, confused and worried about their health and their future. Others were disappointed and autocompadecen. Some find it unfair that has happened and are angry with themselves and people who want it. These feelings are part of the beginning of the process of coping. Each person reacts in a different way, but all the reactions are completely normal.
The next stage of coping is to learn about the disease. Most people who have to live with a chronic illness find that knowledge is power - the more you know about your condition, feel that control over the situation and less afraid.
The third phase of the process of confronting a chronic illness is to take the reins of the situation. At this stage, the person feels comfortable with the treatments and tools (such as inhalers and injections) to be used to lead a normal life.
For example, a person with diabetes may experience a range of emotions when she was diagnosed with the disease. Maybe do not think you would be capable of injecting to determine their level of blood glucose or insulin to control the disease. But after working with medical staff and better understand their illness, are familiar with the whole process and made to stop a mountain. Over time, managing diabetes will become a secondary thing in his life. The steps involved in treating the disease will become a way of taking care of your body and stay healthy, like brushing their teeth after meals or shower.
There is no set time limits for completing the process of coping - the process of going to accept the idea and have a chronic illness is different for every person. In fact, most people find that the emotions have to burst at all stages of the process. Although the treatment goes well, it is normal to be sad or worried from time to time. Recognize these emotions and be aware of them when they emerge as part of the process of coping.
Tools for taking control
People who suffer from a chronic illness often find that the following guidelines to help them accept and address the situation:
Recognizes your feelings. The emotions can not be easily identified. For example, sleep much, much mourn or be in a bad mood can be signs of sadness or depression. It is also quite common for people with chronic illness feel stress in balancing the realities of chronic disease on the one hand, and having to pay for studies, meet the social and other aspects of daily life, on the other.
Many people find a lot of support in individual or specialized services to help cope with stress and emotions. Some people do well talking to a therapist or join a support group designed especially for people suffering from the disease. It is also important to get help for those they trust, like your best friends and your family. The most important when seeking help is not necessarily finding someone who knows a lot about suffering from the disease, but to someone who is willing to listen when you're depressed, angry, frustrated - or just a cheerful castanets. Identify your emotions, accept them as a natural part of the process you are experiencing and expressing or sharing them in a way that you feel comfortable can help you feel better with your situation.
Plays an active role in your health care. The best way to learn about your illness and feel that they control the situation by asking questions. When you go to the doctor usually gives you much information, that can not always be equated to the first. You may be unclear and specific aspects have to ask the doctor or nurse that you repeat some things to make sure you've understood everything. A lot of people it costs too much to ask: "Please, can repetírmelo?" for fear of appearing foolish. But doctors need years of study and practice to learn the information that you provide in a single visit!
If you just diagnosed with a certain disease, it might help you write down the questions you would like to put to your doctor. For example, you might be interested to know:
• How does this disease affect me?
• What kinds of treatments have to follow?
• Is it painful?
• How many treatment sessions will I need?
• Will I have to miss class?
• Can I play sports, play a musical instrument, rehearse the play, school or participate in other activities I enjoy?
• What can I expect? Can I cure my illness? Will the symptoms?
• What treatments have side effects and how long?
• Do I cause sleep, bad temper or weakness?
• What happens if I skip a treatment session or I forget to take medication?
• What if the treatments do not work?
While your doctor can not predict exactly how it will respond to treatment because the response varies considerably from one person to another, the fact of how some people react may help you prepare mentally, emotionally and physically. The more you learn about your illness, most will understand that you must follow the treatment and the emotions that you can experiment and discover the best way to create a healthy lifestyle based on your individual needs.
Includes the reactions of others. It may not be the only person to react emotionally when they hear about your illness. The parents often have difficulty accepting the fact that their children suffer from a chronic disease because they like to avoid anything bad happens in life. Some parents feel guilty or think they have failed their child, others were very angry about what they see as an injustice. The sick, the emotions of others may seem a burden, when, of course, are not the fault of anyone. It may help explain the fact your parents or relatives, when express anger, rage or fear, all we want is to ask for support - you do not heal. Tell your parents not expected to have all the answers, but you will hear how you feel and trasmitiéndote the message that you understand.
Because adolescence is basically about how "fit" and how to be accepted by the group may find it difficult to feel different from friends or peers. Many people who have chronic illnesses are tempted to keep it a secret. Still, sometimes trying to hide an illness can cause problems, as discovered Melissa, who suffers from Crohn's disease. Some of the medicines I had to take quite swollen and his classmates began to get involved with it because it was being "fatty." When Melissa explained that he was wrong, he was surprised how well they reacted and how accepted their classmates.
When talking with friends about your health problem, it might help explain the whole world is different. Just as some people have blue eyes and others are brown, some people are more vulnerable to certain diseases.
Depending on the severity of your disease, you may be constantly surrounded by adults well. Perhaps the teachers, coaches and school psychologists seek help - and maybe make you feel dependent, frustrated or angry. Talk with them and explain how you feel. Informing and explaining the nature of your illness can help them understand what you can already see you as a student or an athlete - not as a patient.
Relativised things. A disease that is easy to become the main focus of a person's life - especially when it was recently been diagnosed and is starting to get used to the idea and deal with the situation. Many people find that reminded themselves that their illness is only part of what helps them to relativize things. Maintain friendships, hobbies and daily routines helps.
Living with a chronic illness
There is no doubt that adolescence can be much more difficult when it is facing a health problem. Apart from social pressures to "fit" and be accepted by the group, it is a period of learning about and understanding the body's own body. In a stage where it is natural to worry about body image, can be very hard to feel different. It is understandable that occasionally feel just a teenager who can not and that is tired of having to live with a chronic illness.
Even those adolescents who either lived with their disease in childhood can feel the urgent desire of leading a "normal" life without drugs and without constraints or having to care for themselves in any special way. It is a completely normal reaction. Some teens who have learned to control their illness feel so healthy and strong that they are actually questioning whether they need to continue with the treatment program. For example, a teenager with diabetes can raise the possibility of skipping a meal while shopping in a department store or to measure blood sugar after training instead of before.
Unfortunately, not follow the treatment program can have disastrous consequences. Your best bet is to tell the doctor how you feel. Discuss what you like to do but presumably can not do - for him to indicate exactly what you can and can not do. It's just a matter of responsibility and take an active role in your health care.
When a person has to live with a chronic disease, can sometimes be difficult to want to your body. But you do not need a perfect body to have a good body image. Your body image can be improved if you care, you assess your skills and accept your limitations - that is true for the whole world, suffering from a chronic illness or not.
When a person is tired of being sick, you can do much to express their frustration or sadness to a sympathetic ear. At times like these, it is important to think about how you can help others and ask for help and express what you want to do it for you. Some people find they can ease their sense of loss to reach out to other people and volunteering to help others in need. Lend a hand to someone can help you make your own problems seem easier to confront.
Adapt to living with a chronic disease requires time, patience, support - and willingness to learn and participate in the care of their health. People who have to deal with unexpected challenges often find in them a capacity for adaptation and resistance that had not previously imagined they might have. Many say they learn more about themselves by having to face these challenges, and feel that as people grow and develop the inner strength and self far greater than if they had not had to confront such challenges. People with chronic diseases find that when taking an active role in caring for their health, learn to understand and appreciate their strengths - and adapt to the weak - and never had.
