I just read Peter Waite readings. I likeed them but something that ways bothered me is how do I not let theses diseases or conditions define me. I have several conditons. I am newly disabled and I' m just finding my way to this new life of being off of work. It has been a year. I talk alot about
my illnesses to those that ask because I can't really hide the fact I use a cane or a wheeled walker. I don't want to be defined as a person with XYand Z but it is what I have. So how does one go about
By the way I do have Bipolar II , Anxiety, PTSD, degenerative disc disease in the lumbar spine with bulging disc in all the lumbar spine except in the L5 S1 very large herniated disc with displaced nerve root, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. That is pretty much it and people I see will ask me how I am, I will tell them I am living. And we get into the explaination of my health. So I am wondering how do I not let the chronic illnesses not define me, especially since I am in alot of chronic pain?
