The psychological effect of serious illness

Mar 11 2021

When we fall sick, we know our body takes a toll. But do you know we also suffer from trauma? Most of the times, we do not consider this aspect when we see people suffering from serious illnesses. Whenever a person is diagnosed with a grave sickness, undergoes surgery or suffers an injury, it has a long-lasting emotional impact on the person and his or her family. That becomes more significant when the time takes for convalescing is more than usual.

Studies show the significant impact of recovery time on the emotional wellbeing of a person. A few situations that can cause the psychological effects are:

  • Fear of being left out; When their life is put on hold during the illness and time taken to convalesce
  • Fear of losing a job/school/earning capacity
  • Fear of not being able to recover fully and gain the complete capacity to resume duties
  • Depression when they think of the future and how they will dare depending on others for simple tasks
  • Fear of being a ‘breakable’ human being and loss of confidence
  • Piling up of expenses, lack of income, fear of losing family and loved ones

Though most people recover physically, the period of convalescence can be long and strain them and their families psychologically. How do we overcome this? By being careful! Take care of your body. Start eating healthy food, reduce the consumption of alcohol and lead a happy, healthy life.

At The Healers’ Clinic, we believe in the adage – Prevention is better than cure. It is valid as it would help you figure out what is happening to your body. We encourage you to take good care of yourself and seek help when convalescing. Do you want to know how to have a preventive approach to health? Talk to our team today.
