It can be torturous waiting to hear a diagnosis for a chronic or terminal illness, or for news of a momentous life event. It is easy for panic to take hold and overwhelm us. Click here to read some simple strategies to help control the rising tide of panic.
"I felt I was grieving in the "wrong way" because my reaction to the loss of my father was so different to my sister's, she was able to cope and carry on but I was floored, couldn't stop longing to talk to him again and felt my life was over. Working with Carrie helped me recognise that grief is an individual experience and there is no one "right" way to grieve. I learnt how to process what had happened so that I was able to live again and find pleasure where it had been lost" P.T
"Receiving my Depression diagnosis was devastating, I felt isolated and that my work colleagues and family would see me as less than them now. All my hopes for how I wanted my life to be were gone; until I joined one of Carrie's Wellness Workshops where I began to understand my diagnosis and learnt that there are things I can do to feel better. I learnt how to recognise the signs when I was on a downward spiral and a depressive episode was looming and I learnt what to do before I hit rock bottom. The compassion and warmth I felt through the program from Carrie and the other particpants has made a massive difference. I am not alone. I can still live and my hopes are not lost" B.F
