Battling to come to grips with a physical illness? Get support from a free hotline in Oregon, United States

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 2 helplines in Oregon, United States where you can confide in volunteers or counselors for support when you feel:

  • That you can no longer be a valuable member of your family or social group.
  • Grief about the health, mobility, social life and peace of mind that you have lost.
  • Anxiety, tension, fear, sadness and helplessness about your condition and what the future holds.
  • Denial, reluctance or an inability to accept your diagnosis or medical condition.
  • Frustration and anger about the uncertainty and disabilities associated with your illness.
  • Isolated from those who don’t comprehend your discomfort or the seriousness of your condition.
  • Shame and sadness about becoming a burden to others.
  • That you are powerless, hopeless or burdensome.

Illness is usually unexpected, and it sometimes seems unfair.

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 Oregon, United States who are waiting to hear your concerns and help you find the emotional strength and resilience within you.
