Are you struggling to cope with a physical illness? Contact a helpline in Vorarlberg, Austria for support.

A chronic, life-altering, or life-threatening diagnosis can come as a shock. The effects of physical illness may make it hard to maintain a positive mental, emotional and spiritual outlook. There are counselors and volunteers at 2 helplines in Vorarlberg, Austria who you can confide in when you feel:

  • Stress about the financial burden that your illness will put on your family.
  • Self-hate over what you’ve become or what feel you must have done to deserve it.
  • Fear that you'll be defined by your medical condition, instead of who you really are.
  • Unsure how to process the reality of death or come to terms with your mortality.
  • Denial, reluctance or an inability to accept your diagnosis or medical condition.
  • Like a burden to friends or family, and no longer a valuable member of society.
  • Isolated from those who don’t comprehend your discomfort or the seriousness of your condition.
  • That you are struggling to cope with the unpredictable or disabling aspects of your illness.

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 Vorarlberg, Austria 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.
