for me, if I am having a bad day, I let myself feel horrible and have a pity party, then I deal with those feelings and pick myself right back up again.
I also have kidney disease and tell myself that worst case I end up with a J-pouch and it could be a lot worse. I think too, what if I had 3 diseases or 4 diseases or 20 or something. I try to think about
all the good things in my life and think this must just be karma b/c I have it so good in other area's, family, friends, work etc.
This is just how I cope. I also keep thinking I need to go to therapy, I went once before and it was great.
