And what are you sick: the good, the bad and the ugly?




Psychologists say: there is nothing that changes the nature of man as a chronic disease. Let us together with Professor of Psychiatry Michael Vinogradova discuss what features of the "rewards" or that illness and how to deal with loved ones

Cores are becoming aggressive and depressed ulcer

Any chronic illness plagued not only the body but also launching its "tentacles" in the human psyche, and suggests there is its own special order. An experienced doctor can determine what a person is sick, not only in appearance but also in the manner of conduct, haggard character traits.

Each disease the features.

Coronary heart disease, hypertension, asthma, make a person anxious and doubtful. These patients are very characteristic unmotivated outbursts of anger, often ending in tears. This, incidentally, has a scientific basis: all these diseases are associated with hypoxia and vascular tissues of the brain, which gives the aggression with mood swings.

People are more touchy, hardly forgive the mistakes of others to overstate the requirements for others.

Views on life are becoming more pessimistic (and not only in relation to their disease). In times of heightened cores and asthmatics are in suspense any disaster and draw close to that feeling.

Heart attacks are housed in the human soul fear to be alone, to die in his sleep. Most people who survive a heart attack, and realizing that we were on the verge of death, become fussy, feverishly active. Grab the weight of affairs, not being afraid to have time to complete them — take the time to live. But even on the external well-being of their pursuing an obsessive fear of death — sudden. Hence, for example, fear of driving a car or having sex.

Suffering from a stomach ulcer or other digestive problems are very hypochondriac, picky. Easily annoyed by trifles, all the time listening to him. Very prone to the general decline in mood, depression. They are not afraid of death, as cores, but are afraid of the pain. Very offended if their slightest complaints are not taken seriously.

Diseased liver bile really makes a person. Many patients with liver not only themselves become resentful, but also tend to hurt the other, prick. And repentance results in new claims and grievances. Their depression are characterized by anger at the world.

Kidney disease usually cause general intoxication of the organism. It leads the lethargy, loss of focus, fatigue, a desire to be left alone. Kidney patients difficult to concentrate, to get to work. Appear feverish mood swings, tearfulness.

Chronic skin diseases such as psoriasis or dermatitis in acute suffer from depression with a touch of shyness. They do not want to appear in public. They are sensitive attention to their appearance.

Become very suspicious of people who can not stand criticism. They think that everything they think, if they were infectious and disgusting. Hence mistrust and rancor: any careless phrase, look long scroll, viscous and interpret in their own way.

How to behave in a close

You can speak at length about that suffering purifies, but the reality of the human disease does not paint. Yes, chronic illness in the family hard. Sometimes even changing the entire habitual way of life. It is important to make allowances for the human condition, no offense once again. But in any case not to be led by indulging in any, even the most delusional whims.

Many families make the mistake of protecting the patient from all of his normal duties with cries of, "Oh, you is not." We need a sensible approach: if you can not plow infarktniku in the country, the dishes, then he is able to wash! Otherwise, a person develops either an inferiority complex or a terrible selfishness. The patient is a family member needs your help, sincere belief that he will recover and not pity, which is known to be humble.
