It takes a lot of strength and power to move past a life-threatening experience. The same goes for those who will live with a chronic illness. Treatment often focuses on physical factors such as resuming normal activities and breathing normally again. However, let us not forget about mental health.
Many people who had a blood clot suffer from anxiety, depression, and even post-traumatic stress disorder. It might help to know that you are not alone if this is the case for you. Fortunately, there are organizations devoted to making mental health services more accessible.
