Real Truths About Living With Disease

We all know someone that has, at one point in their lives, battled a disease. It is upsetting to see someone your care about go through something so heartbreakingly difficult. Whether you provide care for someone who is going through this, or you are going through it yourself, it can be isolating, frustrating, and enlightening, all at the same time. If you are struggling to come to terms with it, bear the following in mind…

 

You Will Find Out Who You Really Are…

The fact of being diagnosed with a disease changes everything. It means constant doctors’ appointments, relationships with friends being questioned and confused, your family dynamics become tense and frustrating but it brings you closer together. Throughout all of this, you must remember that you haven’t changed, your version of who you are is still valid.

 You will find that as you are potentially coming face to face with something that is life-threatening, you will really get to the core of who you are. You may realize that it’s time to strip away all of the unnecessary flotsam and jetsam you have around your life and start to focus on the things that really matter. Sometimes it can take a really difficult situation to make you understand who you actually are, and that 90% of everything beforehand was just nonsense. Stressing about wiping the table seemed so significant at the time, but your perspective will change.

Help Is Around The Corner If You Need It…

It is very tempting to sit there and feel sorry for yourself for a long period of time. Sometimes we find it hard to ask for help, even if we are in dire need of it. Sometimes we are confused about what it is that we are suffering from, and sometimes we just don’t want to know. A disease like a mesothelioma can be a difficult one to live with. http://www.mesotheliomahelp.org gives a breakdown of what it is and what the symptoms are, as well as its variants.

Sometimes if we have a better understanding of the inner workings of living with a disease, we can plan to live our lives more fully. The support groups for a disease such as Mesothelioma means that you can speak to like-minded people who are going through the same thing. A problem shared is a problem halved, and when you are diagnosed with a disease it can be very isolating, so by speaking to people who are going through the same thing, you can talk about it, dissect it, or even laugh at it!

 

Use This As A Reason To Make Your Mark…

What will locking yourself away prove to anyone? This is a perfectly good excuse to do something outside of the norm. What have you always wanted to do? Have you wanted to go skydiving, or swimming with sharks? A common feeling of people diagnosed with a disease is that they didn’t feel that they left their mark on the world before. So do it! The time is now.
