I stay proactive with my disease and learn and read books about it and beyond it. I changed my diet and stopped eating all the crap that most americans eat daily, I try to help others and offer solutions rather than ***** about it 24/7. I exercise, i am gainfully employed and maintain a socail life and contribute to society. I believe that i can beat the disease. Those all help me stay motivated ecspecailly the last one motivated. I am not concerned out medical research, although is good, the most they will come up with in my lifetime is more drugs that supress your immune system but doesnt cure anything. As soon as the start looking back into probiotics and natural cures i may be interested.
I have my bad days, who doesnt. But if you let this disease own you, then you arent going to get any motivation. Motivation starts with you, you can either take every pill handed to you and ***** 24/7 about your ailments or you can take some pills and be proactive and make changes in your life before its too late. If you accept that your defeated by a chronic illness then you are just that, and some people do. Others may believe that this is a beatable disease and get very proactive with it. It depends on what kind of person you are.
