What does not kill you makes you stronger

" What does not kill you makes you stronger". These are wise words, and when you are tackling a serious illness, it's worth keeping these in mind. While it can be a battle, it's a battle worth fighting ! However, you need to learn to choose your battles - there's little point in blaming yourself or cursing God ! Reinold Neibuhr expressed this very eloquently in his Serenity Prayer - " God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time. "
A helpful tool is to write down your fears and nightmares - what's the worst which can happen ? Once you do this, it makes it easier to deal with them - it's better to fight with a named demon !
Dealing with an illness forces you to confront your own mortality . This can be a major life changing event - learn to enjoy the learning !
