Shutting Out Depression When Medical Issues Look Grim
An unexpected diagnosis of a chronic disorder is almost always received with the surging of intense emotions - shock, rage, anguish, hurt and grief. There is nothing wrong if you feel this way; it is a natural reaction to a life-changing illness. These emotions usually subside in time as you learn more about the illness and your options.
When the intense emotions, however, linger to the extent of being stressed most of the time, seek help. This is not the right time for you to sink into depression. You need to be positive and resilient to survive your health challenge.
Depression As a real Possibility
Any chronic ailment is a potential trigger for depression. Thus, depression is a common disorder that you may experience soon after you are diagnosed and as you focus on its severity and the level of changes you need to make to improve your health.
According to Medicine Net, it is estimated that up to one-third of these people will likely manifest the symptoms of depression. Specifically, it is estimated that the risk of depression, which is 5-12 percent for men and 10-25 percent for women, will climb to 25 to 33 percent.
Depression needs to be treated with haste if you are struggling with a chronic health issue because it can complicate, even aggravate, your illness. If it is causing you pain, weakness or it is affecting your social life, it can intensify the signs and symptoms. The pain can get worse and allow you withdraw into isolation.
You can promptly address depression when you know its signs and symptoms, though these may be more difficult to detect because a concurrent illness can mask them. Commonly, the signs and symptoms are medically treated, but not the underlying cause of depression; you need both treated for a good overall health. With a healthy mind and a positive outlook, you stand a better chance to recover from depression.
The Right Kind of Help
With a chronic medical condition, you will be gripped by intense emotions. Succumbing to depression can give you a more discouraging outlook. If helplessness and hopelessness sink in, you’ll have difficulty adjusting and embracing the changes you need to make in your lifestyle to curb its symptoms.
Because 25 to 33 percent of people with a chronic illness are vulnerable to developing depression, consider yourself a candidate. Seek help from Carolina Counseling Services in Fayetteville, NC as soon as you are diagnosed with the chronic illness. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment of depression can help you quash possible complications and have a shot at a better quality of life, despite the mandatory lifestyle change.
