Battling to cope with your diagnosis and symptoms? Reach out to a helpline for free support in British Columbia, Canada

It’s hard to maintain a positive outlook when your life is disrupted by physical illness. The basic tasks of daily life might become too challenging to handle alone, and you may start to feel like a burden. In British Columbia, Canada there are 5 helplines you can reach out to for support if you are feeling:

  • That life isn’t worth living, given the limitations and pain associated with your medical condition.
  • Depression about the life you've lost, things you cannot do, and places you cannot go.
  • Isolated from those who don’t comprehend your discomfort or the seriousness of your condition.
  • Afraid about the uncertainty of life and the pain you may feel from your symptoms.
  • Fear of future physical discomfort, pain, changes to your routine, and possibly death.
  • Anxiety, tension, fear, sadness and helplessness about your condition and what the future holds.
  • Anger and disbelief about your diagnosis, and constantly asking yourself, “why me?”
  • Stress about the financial burden that your illness will put on your family.

Illness is usually unexpected, and it sometimes seems unfair. Perhaps the news or consequences of your illness has made you feel numb with shock and disappointment, or overwhelmed with powerful emotions. The inability to think straight or function may make you feel frustrated, anguished or useless. You are still valued.

Facing the challenges of physical illness requires strength that can sometimes only come through support. There are volunteers and counselors in British Columbia, Canada who are waiting to hear your concerns and help you find the emotional strength and resilience within you. Asking for help doesn't mean you're weak – it shows that you are human.
