Sharing Common Emotions Despite our Various Conditions...

Dec 11, 2014, 10:53 AM

I was referred to the Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions workshop by the North Simcoe Family Health Team Diabetes Centre in Midland, Ontario. I have Type II Diabetes, high blood pressure, shortness of breath and arthritis.


There were 12 participants in the group along with our two leaders, all with different chronic health conditions. It has been an informative workshop. I was surprised that the participants shared so many common emotions and symptoms although our diseases are so different.


The leaders did an amazing job presenting the materials and putting all participants at ease. I feel this is an excellent workshop, which benefited all that participated. I certainly hope the workshop continues to be offered to others. The group consisted of twelve participants, which I think is the right size allowing the group to get to know each other and feel comfortable sharing personal matters. I looked forward to each session.


Thank you for providing the book and creating this workshop. The book and CD are helpful reference tools for me.
