Many conditions such as fibromyalgia, post-surgical pain, CRPS and others can adversely impact employment, daily functioning, and the ability to enjoy life; and this can lead to depression and anxiety. Many chronic health problems such as diabetes, asthma and COPD, cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, MS, sclerosis, Lupus, etc. can also seriously affect quality of life.

Currently, in addition to these problems, many people are dealing with long-Covid and post-Covid issues, often involving emotional and psychological impact with the loss of jobs and financial stability and the loss of relationships.
