The worst time is

  • When you need to make changes but can’t bear to know it
  • When you need to recognise what is happening , but the implications seem life-threatening
  • When you can’t bear to see what is actually happening
  • When you are afraid your worst nightmare is happening
  • When your partner is denying there is any problem, and you are the only person who sees it
  • When reality seems too cruel for words
  • When only you know, but you know you have to tell someone else

About thetroublewithillness

I've been a counsellor for people with physical illnesses for a long time now, and learnt a lot about what it's like living with your own or someone else's illness. I want to pass some of this on.
