The onset and existence of medical health conditions and illnesses may contribute to feelings of confusion, sadness, anxiety, depression, and/or anger. Chronic medical conditions, disease or some form of serious illness will likely affect every person in some way, whether it is directly (one’s own condition) or indirectly (a friend or family member) . Talking with a mental health therapist who understands medical conditions can help individuals cope with any challenges which arise as they face a difficult or debilitating illness.
