Warm Wishes For a Peaceful Holiday Season

Happy Holidays!

The holiday season is upon us;  A time to share warm holiday greetings while reflecting upon the many individuals combating a C. difficile infection with the extensive list of  wellness draining illnesses worldwide.

We call to mind our loved ones, patients, neighbors, friends, acquaintances and the many individuals who have passed away from a Clostridium difficile infection and/or C. difficile  infection involvement while fighting other diagnoses simultaneously.

The all-encompassing nature of chronic illness and its disruption of life and plans can elicit a wide range of emotions. These responses include: stress, grief, anger,fear,depression, and anxiety.  Be kind to yourself.  Take time for you during the holiday season.

It has been found beneficial to experiment with a variety of ways to manage stress and the many emotions that surface during the holidays season. When you find a technique that relieves the symptoms,  try to incorporate it into your daily or weekly routine. Some proven methods include exercising, walking, yoga, listening to music, deep breathing exercise, meditation, cooking, reading, writing in a journal, and spending quality time with family and friends. There is always the option of speaking with a healthcare provider to obtain a mental health professional referral for continued support.

We would like to take this opportunity to say that during the year it has been an honor to stand along-side of the many global patient focused organizations, healthcare professionals, and scientists researching and developing preventative measures, and treatments to combat C. diff. infections with the long list of  “superbugs.”

We are truly grateful.

We look forward to releasing new programs in 2019 for patients, families, healthcare professionals. and residents in every community while working towards a shared goal in witnessing a reduction of newly diagnosed  C. diff. infections with increasing awareness of Antibiotic-Resistance, Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs, Sepsis, and more.

“None of us can do this alone…..all of us can do this together.”

Thank you for your continued support from all of us at the C Diff Foundation.

We wish you and your family warm holiday greetings with hopes for a
stronger, healthier, and positive New Year.
