Because all Chronic Illnesses bring much stress into our lives, it’s necessary to find ways to deal with and diminish this stress. We have physical stress from our diseases that could damage us physically, mentally, and emotionally. We have, more than a healthy person, a responsibility to ourselves to learn all we can about stress and try to replace bad reactions with good.

I can honestly say that my ability to avoid negative stress has improved over my lifetime. Being in my 60’s means that I’ve had plenty of opportunities to react badly to stress, and I have. But, it also means that I’ve had the same amount of opportunities to prevent bad reactions to stressors and live a more contented life. I hope that I’ll make more progress with stress so that I can help others and also improve my relationships.
