Patient Resources for Stress Awareness Month

“I have found that stress will aggravate my sickness and symptoms. Unfortunately, stress is a major factor in my life. Today, I am trying to minimize the amount of stress I feel and improve the way I handle it.”

April is Stress Awareness Month. Stress is a part of the human experience. It accompanies life changes, both happy and sad, from the excitement of planning a wedding to the devastation of losing a loved one. We all experience some levels of stress in our day-to-day lives.

However, when combined with a chronic illness like pulmonary hypertension, stress can be especially difficult to manage. Without proper attention, stress has the potential to take a toll on your physical health and quality of life.
