Having a long-term physical health condition (LTC) can be frustrating or worrying at times. Examples of LTCs include diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), HIV, heart failure, arthritis, chronic pain and epilepsy. It is very common for health conditions to affect how you feel and for your mood to affect your health condition. This can lead to feeling stressed, low, anxious or worried.
