This research examined chronically ill patients’ psychological responses to their illnesses and some factors influencing these responses.Forty patients with chronic illnesses in Hong Kong were interviewed regarding their experiences.The patients were asked about the history of their illness and medical treatment,general health status,their feelings during the illness,their primary concern,the effects of their illness on daily activities,and coping with the stress or pressure from the illness.It was found that patients’ typical responses included uselessness,guilt,anxiety,and fear.The patients’successful adaptation to their illness is conditional upon whether they are provided adequate social support from family,other patients and nurses.The influence of Chinese culture on the patients’ reactions was discussed.The findings have implications for nursing practices.
