    If you "are afflicted" by pain,illness,or disaster, it affects you badly and makes you suffer.

    Ex: There are two main problems which afflict people with hearing impairments.


    If someone or something "distresses"you , they cause you to be upset or worried.

    Ex: The idea of her brother being in danger distresses her enormously.
