This heading has been a lesson I’ve been trying to learn these past few weeks. With Chronic illness we have enough to deal with, but when other health issues creep up, it seems almost unbearable.
My brain has been so easily wired for the negative and I know why, with childhood trauma you have no choice but to go to the negative while you are on constant alert of the worse case scenario thinking, and I had to be somewhat in control to navigate that time in my life.
So choosing Happy or not making who I am all about my health issues does not in any way come easy, it’s like I have to undo years and years of how I was naturally.
Some advice I was given was to acknowledge what my body was telling me to thank it and adjust accordingly but not dwell. Otherswise it will and has on many days consumed my life and robs me of joy and being in the moment.
So this will be my goal to figure out those moments as they come and hopefully each day it will become easier to undo my normal way of thinking.
