"Never let the things you cannot do prevent you from doing the things you can.” -John Wooden
Health issues have a tendency to make us focus on the past- what we used to do, how life was before-
A new diagnosis
A change in how the body functions
Daily limitations due to health
Feeling isolated from others due to limitations
Dealing with changes in health has a lot in common with both dealing with anxiety and grief and loss... It is far more complicated than those around us understand, and sometimes far more complicated than we even realized it would be.
Having someone to work through all the complicated layers of emotion and finding ways to adjust to the new normal will help you move through this difficult time...
