A group headed by the man who created such classic family films as "E.T." and "Jurassic Park" has secured APA's help in building another screen attractioninteractive computer programs that help children cope with a serious or chronic illness. Starbright produces computer games and videos that teach children about their illnesses and offer suggestions on coping with such stressors as repeated hospitalizations, chronic pain or rigid treatment regimens. It also offers "Starbright World," a private online hospital-based network, including videoconferencing, chat and other interactive services that allow children to converse with and support their peers who are struggling with similar illnesses. Starbright staff say psychologists can help enhance the foundation's already active product research-and-development efforts. Starbright conducts extensive studies, ranging from assessing the psychological needs of children with specific diseases to measuring the behavioral outcomes of patients who use Starbright programs. But the foundation wants to expand the network of researchers it regularly recruits for those studies, says Jordana Huchital, director of the foundation's health-care initiatives. "By going to APA as an organization, rather than looking for experts on our own, we can more easily find someone who is regarded by his or her colleagues as one of the top people in the field," Huchital says.

Jan. 2, 2003
Just in time for New Year's resolutions to kick in, a health care task force convened by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced this week that there is good evidence that extended behavioral counseling can help patients who are at known risk for heart disease and other chronic illnesses. The task force said, however, that there is insufficient evidence to gauge the effectiveness of brief, routine counseling among healthy adults.
After reviewing 35 years' worth of diet counseling studies, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force concludes that intensive diet counseling can help at-risk adult patients eat less fat and more fruits and vegetables, concluding that this counseling can be delivered by primary care clinicians or by referral to other specialists, such as nutritionists or dietitians. The review and the task force's recommendations are published in the January issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine

Why Try to Learn What Started Your Illness
Large numbers of patients fight a disease without knowing what actually started it. Why is this important? Allowing the substance that started a medical disorder to continue to enter the body delays the recovery. My name is Terry Gromer. I am a chemistry teacher who spent three or four evenings a week for a year reading medical journals. Critical information was found. It is organized into a report that is for individuals with long-term disorders including those with an immune system that is damaging nerves, joints or blood vessels. Multiple sclerosis is one example. Someone who was healthy a few years ago is now seriously ill. How can this happen? Something entered his body that made the change. Shouldn't someone try to identify the material? The reason for spending so much time in the medical library was to search for success stories. When a physician did something remarkable, a colleague would tell him to publish his findings in a medical journal. My library search uncovered approximately fifty cases. I wanted to know if there was a common thread. What was the reason for the success? The doctor identified the primary cause (what started the illness). Often, the reason why the medical disorder lasted for months or longer was the material that started it continued to enter the body. What is the harmful material? It is a common product repeatedly entering the body of a person who does not tolerate it. This frequent event does not disable a person unless he uses a drug year after year to crush a symptom warning him about the poorly tolerated material.

Reach Out: Factsheet
Chronic illness
What is chronic illness?
A chronic illness is the name of a group of illnesses that are permanent or last a long time. Examples of chronic illness include:
  • allergies
  • arthritis
  • asthma
  • cancer
  • crohn's disease
  • cystic fibrosis
  • diabetes
  • epilepsy
  • haemophilia
  • coeliac disease
  • multiple sclerosis
  • lupus
Each condition has a different experience. It may be that the illness slowly gets worse over time, causes permanent changes to the body or it may finally go away. Chronic illness may effect your quality of life and management of the illness can minimise the effect it will have.
Living with a chronic illness
It is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed when you are first diagnosed with a chronic condition. It may be the first time that you have had to think seriously about your health and about the future. Chronic illnesses may also require changes to your lifestyle by:
  • introducing regular medication and/or monitoring of your body
  • changes to your diet
  • managing your alcohol use
There may also be the long-term impact of the illness to consider. It can be a big adjustment to make. Living with a chronic illness can be frustrating, monotonous, stressful and depressing. It is not unusual to be frustrated by your illness and want to ignore it or rebel against it. If you are feeling this way it may be helpful to speak to your local doctor, a community health worker, counsellor or nurse. The

Despite an impressive growth in biological knowledge and biotechnology, health care costs continue to grow, cancer incidence remains high, bacteria continue to develop antibiotic resistance, HIV and other viral illnesses continue to spread, environmental degradation continues, the weather changes erratically, and the wellness quotient of the average world citizen deteriorates. Many believe that the practice of medicine perches on revolutionary threshold as we develop insights into the molecular mechanisms controlling our biological function. The new medicine is fascinated with genetics, molecular biology, manufactured molecular probes and controller molecules. However, our activities alter the environment that sustains us. We spoil our own nest and then pretend that everything is fine. As the new biology gains momentum in research facilities, our biological and social environments deteriorate, bringing us closer to catastrophes that no vials of magic potions will resolve. We live in a civilization that can produce illness faster and on a grander scale than it can ever hope to solve.

Diabetes Rescue
Exercise is Best Medicine Alpha Nutrition Among our diabetic patients, there has been a consensus that eating-control is difficult to achieve, even when wrong food choices involve serious illness. The consensus is also that some foods trigger compulsive eating, uncontrollable by ordinary acts of consciousness. We think that compulsive eating is as much part of diabetes as is elevated blood sugar. The Psychosocial Dimension S. J. Gislason MD The basic problem with proposing diet revision as therapy is that eating behaviors are deeply rooted in a psychosocial matrix and are not rationally determined. Diet revision attempts to introduce rational determination of eating behaviors and food selection. The social basis of eating patterns often conflicts with individual needs and opposes the attempts made by an individual to modify diet as a means of restoring or maintaining health. The idea of " a diabetic diet" as a fixed set of instructions and a restricted food list is stubborn and fits with a passive-dependent attitude of the patient who says "fix me". We think that compulsive eating is as much part of diabetes as is elevated blood sugar. The control of diabetes is, therefore, more complicated that it seems at first glance. It is not simply a matter of choosing the right foods but it is a matter of learning a whole new way of coping with hunger, desires, cravings, social pressures, and a host of self-regulatory challenges that most people never deal with.

CSA Library Series: Article #4 Coping with Chronic Illness
Deborah Garnett, RN, Ph.D., Clinical Therapist, Center Point, Inc., Kansas City, MO
Lifeline, Winter 1993, Vol XI, No 1, pp 1 Dr. Garnett opened her talk by asking the audience to list their feelings related to celiac sprue; fear, guilt, sadness, anger, loneliness and resentment were among those named. In our society, many families discourage the expression of emotion. When a child's cries or outbursts of anger are punished or labeled as "bad" by the parents, the offspring tends to grow up denying the negative feelings and behaving in a rigid pattern which proved acceptable. Dr. Garnett stressed their feelings in order to deal with emotions and resolve day-to-day problems. She emphasized the importance of sharing feelings in our support groups. The insecurities, frustrations and adjustments related to the gluten-free diet and the illness should be aired with those who understand our situation. Such meetings can contribute greatly to easing denial, isolation and potential anger. Depression is a manifestation of anger turned inward. The symptoms include unpredictable tears, sadness that lingers longer than the situation warrants, too much or too little sleep, listlessness, trouble concentrating, extreme guilt, suicidal thoughts, too little or too much appetite, and a sense of worthlessness. Expressing the anger either verbally or in writing can be the start toward resolution of the problem, but the long-suppressed emotions tend to resurface again and again.

Living Healthy The Challenge of Chronic Illness
(August 2000) Nobody wants to have a chronic illness. However, the majority of us will develop one or more chronic health problems during our lives. In fact, it is estimated that people 60 and older on average have two or more chronic health conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, lung disease, stroke or diabetes. Chronic health problems typically require that a person manage their condition with the guidance and advice of their doctor. That usually means maintaining a certain diet, exercising regularly and following a strict medication program. Dealing with any chronic condition is an emotional challenge. Often the emotional and psychological effects are just as daunting as the physical ones. The losses and lifestyle changes that are associated with chronic illness can take a toll. These may include the loss of a job or friends, or giving up some dreams, goals or valued activities. Finding ways to cope with the physical and emotional challenges is key to living successfully with a chronic health problem. This process, often called "self help" or "self management," includes all the decisions a person makes and actions they take to maintain their health and independence.

Many factors can affect the course of a chronic illness, including heredity,lifestyle (eg, stress, diet, exercise) and even environment.
CHAPTER 7 Learning to Live well with a chronic illness Illness is the night side of life. Sontag In some ways, living with chronic illness is very much like being trapped in a maze - you're never quite certain what lies ahead of you; so, it's easy to lose your perspective. You wander the same path over and over again - totally lost and bewildered. You appear to be alone with no one to show you the way out. There are many questions, but few answers. Which is the most effective treatment ? Who are the best doctors ? What options can be utilized so that the way out can be found ? You need to find your own path, and confronting your illness is a process that must be worked through . This process takes time and effort. If you live with a chronic condition, how you view the path you're on and decide to manage your day-to-day situations can greatly affect your quality of your life. Acute vs. chronic Most people are familiar with acute illness, such as appendicitis, typhoid fever or pneumonia, which comes on suddenly and often has an identifiable cause. Generally, such an illness is treatable. Often the individual regains normal health, and usually does not remain sick very long.
