Time of Illness

Time of illness is to anyone a testing and vulnerable period: A moment of uncertainly, of agony and distress. 
The disease may be physical or mental illness.

Depression is a terrible illness that causes gloom and desperation. What makes mental illness more distressing especially to the sufferer is the plain fact that, the disease is not visible to the naked eyes as in physical illness. 
The sufferer may not receive sympathy as it should be or as it is in case of physical illness. There is also less understanding from the public about the intense agony that mental health patients do go through not to mention the often unspoken cultural taboos.

Yet the disease is as old as mankind.
In all, regardless of the nature of our disease, the following encouraging words should be considered. 
When we fall ill, we should remember that we need all the resources that are available to us to overcome the disease: Here is Norman Cousins:

The first stage of a healing process is summed by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
“Refuse to be ill. Never tell people you are ill; never own it to yourself. Illness is one of those things which a man should resist on principle at the onset.”
This is neither a denial nor a recipe for not seeking appropriate timely help. Rather it is a principle that you will get what you say and your confession is your possession.
In spite of this, we know diseases do come and time of a disease is a testing time. On such occasions we need reassuring word to see us through. Here is one.... Continue here . ...Buy the book in print .

What if the illness such as cancer or any other illness has been described by doctors as terminal ( effectively a death sentence)?  Clearly, here hope is very thin. Yet at this stage, word of encouragement will still achieve a great deal, for word has incredible power . Here is a response I wrote in letter / card form,  not too long ago when someone told me about the illness of a friend described as terminal:

I believe in miracles. We can not give up hope even at this stage for nothing is impossible for...

Lovely and inspiring. Do not judge a book by its cover. this book is positively deceptive. The book is intermix of love, indepth motivational words and teachings on how to receive or give words of encouragement to other people. Powerful.
