support-group-dubai2A series of support groups is being launched in Dubai to offer advice and psychological support to patients suffering from chronic illness. The initiative, offered by the German Neuroscience Center, is designed to address the lack of support group services in the UAE and help patients overcome the isolation often associated with chronic conditions.

The German Neuroscience Center will host free monthly sessions at the clinic led by counsellor Dr. Jared Alden (an American board certified psychologist and counsellor) starting on Monday August 11th 2014.

Chronic diseases are defined as long-term health conditions, which often do not have a cure and impair the quality of life e.g. diabetes, asthma, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and dementia, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, cystic fibrosis, Crohn’s, arthritis and chronic auto-immune diseases. The groups will be open to patients, family members and friends and cover a range of topics related to living with chronic illness.
Attendees will profit from practical tips how to live with certain diseases to increase the quality of life. Read more

Last week I anxiously sat next to my 11 year old son as he bravely ate scrambled egg! Why was this such a big deal I hear you say. Well this was the first time he had eaten egg since suffering an anaphylaxis shock aged six at his friends birthday party. The news was great he is not allergic to eggs anymore so Friday mornings before rugby training he can now look forward to a plate of bacon, black pudding, baked beans and a fried egg (sunny side up!!). Unfortunately I still have to carry an Epipen around with me as he is still highly allergic to sesame and peanut. I do not require just one Epipen but four as he needs one on him at all times at school, one in the nurses room, one that I leave at home and one that I carry with me.  Read more

Sadness, relief, stress, fear, can all set in. No doubt it is a stressful time, so be kind and patient with yourself as you try to cope. Goodbyes however, never dismiss the impact and significance of the memories and relationships made. The impact you, and others, have had on each other during this season will last forever. Memories last forever too. Read more
