Do you have chronic disease which limits your functioning? Is there serious illness in your family? Are you mourning the loss of a partner or child?
Both in illness and death, we experience loss. There is a loss of familiarity and security. These situations can knock you out of balance. And it can be a lonely way to travel. Often people around you do not understand what you are going through. Support and attention of those around you may fade away after a while. And how do you cope after that? Who has time to listen to you?
Talking about the effects of illness and loss is very important. We will give you all the space you need. Processing will be at your pace. To an extend you will never be able to process the loss of a partner or an ongoing disease fully. Because of that it is important that people take time for you and listen to you.
