I have no idea who ggood is but what he has said is the truth as he sees it. (I agree with him but you are upset) What he has said is done-the only difference between you and I re his words is how we have interpreted them…So its not the words that are the issue-but how we decide how we feel about them.
I understand what you say re fight etc and he wont beat you BUT from what I am picking up in your words then you never will beat it-let me explain-you dont have to believe a word I say either-just offering you a different way to look at this situation…
Personally I detest the term ‘fight’ for all the connotations that it brings. It implies that you (any person with any illness) can get rid of it. With MS and cancer and many others it can go into remission but I do believe that you cant just get rid of it by fighting it.
When you fight you use alot of energy. When you fight you are angry, ready for battle. A battle that has been lost by definition of diagnosis (in the sense that its now a part of you-you cant get rid of it-no matter how much you want to) So why would you fight yourself?
I understand this attitude initially-been there, done that, got the tshirt but what was I achieving by ‘fighting’? Stress, increased symptoms etc etc so I had to (for my own sanity and those around me!) find a different way of looking at the situation I have found myself in. I accept that I have a life changing incurable illness. I understand that I choose what to spend my precious energy on-and its def not fighting! Thats doesnt make me a soft touch-a wimp! Far from it!
Its up to YOU (reader of this post!)
Just a suggestion-you decide whats right for you.
Have a happy day!
