Chronic illness during Covid times

ADVICE

By : Vik

Over a year ago

"It's true that the year has really not been easy for all of us. In particular, it has made things more complex for people who already had a chronic illness. 

The phenomenon of deprogramming, for example, has had a very strong impact on the care of patients. More doubts and uncertainties have crept into a life path that had already been disrupted by the diagnosis.  

Some of you may be afraid to go to the hospital because there is a probable risk of contracting covid. Some of you may have even cancelled or postponed appointments, and others may not have gone at all.  

Don't worry, because there are two very different "tracks" in the hospital for patients who have covid and for those who are being followed for other conditions. Remember to take good care of yourself, and for that you must, from the moment you receive the announcement of your disease, continue your journey towards treatment, because the chances are high that you will be able to see the end of it; much higher of course than if you give up due to the fear of this disease that has already immobilized far too many people, and far too much hope. 

Take care of yourself, don't neglect your medical check-ups! They are important to lead you to the next part of your life." 

Giacomo Di Falco, psycho-oncologist
