When you are told your health is being affected by a condition, you often do not get information you can understand from your doctor at that moment. Referral to a specialist or a dietician or further tests can draw out the diagnosis and understanding of your next steps. Turning to a broad internet search can give you all sorts of incorrect information. Start somewhere easy, with the DVD collection at Peoria Public Library. You will find easy to absorb information on everything from Type 2 diabetes to depression to cancer to arthritis. Educating yourself is often the first step to getting a grip on your new life and for most, watching a film is an easy way to start.
Next use the various databases and publications at Peoria Public Library to find out more. At www.peoriapubliclibrary.org under research you will find articles and under e-books you will find a wide variety of downloadable books to help you understand your condition or disease. Need help?
