  • Worried about how you’ll look after your family when you are sick, you lose your job, or become disabled.
  • Loss of control and an intense feeling of helplessness in the face of your illness.
  • Like a burden to friends or family, and no longer a valuable member of society.
  • Self-hate over what you’ve become or what feel you must have done to deserve it.
  • Worry about the pain you'll feel, medical bills, death, and your family’s future happiness.
