Patients who are terminally ill may experience unfortunate emotions that are severe enough to affect their daily activities. This is understandably the case. A terminal diagnosis is painful for the patient and their loved ones.
However, another layer may complicate the situation, and addressing this is important. On top of the negative emotions and declining health, terminally ill patients may struggle with depression.
Recognizing depression from other negative emotions can be a challenge, but if left unaddressed, the patient further suffers. If you know someone who seems to have chronic anxiety, depressed mood, reduced interest in previously enjoyed hobbies, difficulty making decisions, and others, it may be time to recommend professional help.
