Feeling defeated by the impacts of a physical illness? Free helplines are available in Uganda

Everything changes when you’re diagnosed with a serious, chronic or life-threatening physical illness. Coping with your new reality can be challenging, especially when you feel isolated or alone. You are valued. There are 1 helplines in Uganda where you can confide in volunteers or counselors for support when you feel:

  • Grief about the health, mobility, social life and peace of mind that you have lost.
  • Self-hate over what you’ve become or what feel you must have done to deserve it.
  • Unsure how to process the reality of death or come to terms with your mortality.
  • Afraid of what the future holds, including the pain you may feel, disabilities or death.
  • Frustration and anger about the uncertainty and disabilities associated with your illness.
  • Loss of control and an intense feeling of helplessness in the face of your illness.
  • Worry that you are a burden and no longer as active or capable as before.
  • Shame and sadness about becoming a burden to others.

The impacts of physical illness can extend beyond physical pain and disability. The emotions you feel from these sudden or ongoing changes to your normal way of life can be overwhelming, and you may need support. You likely need someone to confide, who can help you find your inner strength.

You have the potential to face physical illness with grace and resilience. To do so, you need to nurture your mental and emotional wellbeing. You can start by confiding in someone in Uganda who understands how deeply medical distress can affect your mental health. Reaching for support does not make you weak, helpless or incapable – it just means you’re human.
