I too have figured out the only thing I can control is how I react or respond to things. Knowing & understanding that has been the key to my living with these conditions!!
I have always favored a simpler way of life, so I have benefited from this for many years now. It was also one of the hardest things I 've ever done!
Besides - I have a constant source of humor - myself!!!! At least I can all most always laugh at myself!!
