Long term health conditions

Living with a long term health condition can be frustrating, tiring and worrying. 

There are many challenges involved, especially when dealing with difficult or unpleasant symptoms, procedures or treatments. It’s understandable that this can cause people to feel down, stressed or just not their usual selves.

A long term condition can affect all aspects of a person’s life. People can struggle to manage the changes that a health condition requires of them or find it more difficult to cope with their usual daily activities.
