Men Living with Chronic Illness or Pain Christian Support Group and Resources

If you're a man that lives with a chronic condition, chances are it's even harder to find someone to talk to about what you're going through. Spiritual struggles, not being able to provide for your family, and difficulties doing "dad" things, can all make living with pain unbearable.

We know that you will find some support and understanding with these 40 or so other men that are going through similar circumstances.

"When the husband is the partner in the marriage with the illness, his usual role as fully involved husband, father, and provider is disrupted. The division of responsibilities that the husband and wife are accustomed to becomes unbalanced, with more and more transferred to the healthy wife.

The home is then restructured with the wife assuming her own responsibilities, the responsibilities of her sick husband, and the role of nurse too. Conflict can arise when the sick husband feels tension and frustration because he cannot function in every capacity that he once did."

Not all of these resourcs are specifically just for me, or even specifically for illness. But we have found that these have helped a lot of en who were looking for something to encourage them on their illness journey.
