One thought on “The Right Mindset Goes A Long Way When Facing Medical Challenges

    This is even true when dealing with illnesses especially ones that don’t go away. I tell a lot of ppl how just being positive does help even in horrible pain. I say this because I am currently dealing with 3 autoimmune diseases & Fibro & hyper mobility and I stay as positive as I can and it makes it better. I have no fatigue from any of the illness and I really believe it’s because I try and always be positive. I also don’t take any meds except for my PTSD n my muscle relaxers because the Drs have messed me up with meda. I took myself off of all my other meds including my pain meds. I am happier being off all the meds I was on n I was on Klonopin & vistrol for my severe anxiety n I also have severe depression but my PTSD med also treats depression as well. But being off the meds made me so much more positive n it’s not been easy dealing with all the things that started to go wrong after the klonopin use but I exercises everyday n stay very active to deal with the pain. I just figure I might as well be positive because I will always have the things I do & having negative thoughts is gonna make the pain n everything else worse n I also refuse to let my illnesses control my life. Sorry for writing a novel but I truly believe in positivity. I hear so many stories of people who just lay around n sleep all day n that is not how I wanna spend my days but then again I do have really bad ADHD which got a lot worse after stopping the klonopin. So I don’t like sleeping n always have lots of energy lol
