welcome syndi, its a great place here, very supportive. Im like you proactive 100% since and before my dx of MS.
I dont know much about
the menthal health issues, but sometimes i do get depressed some, but i find something to do to get my mind off it. or i just lay around and watch stupid tv shows. lol or go shopping whooo hoo.
I think and feel that certain symptoms, thats what i'll call your "crazies", is an individual thing. To me, its ok can i deal with this symptom or not, how much is it putting stress on me. which we all know stress in not our friend. If i can deal with the symptom, i just push on, if i cannot, i talk to my dr, if he dont help or i feel he isnt listening, i consult another one.
Only you can answer if you need to pursue the mental health issues your experiencing. Me personally, if it was me, i would research and find out. Maybe there is a mild or some other type of therapy, something else i could do.
I too think that we can as you say "will" things away. maybe not will them away but more like accept them or tolerate them better. I really feel that sometimes i say im sick or feel bad, and usually i end up feeling worse. If we say ok, its not so bad we move on and keep pushing forward.
Welcome again to our wonderful group, talk to you again soon.
