So many newly diagnosed individuals have a difficult time accepting the fact that they have a medical condition that they will have to live with for the rest of their lives. Whether it is Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, or another medical condition, we have to accept it and deal with it. We were given these lives to live for a reason… to inspire others and have a sense of pride about ourselves. Not to put ourselves down. Parents of children who have been newly diagnosed with a motor disorder such as Cerebral Palsy, wonder whether they had something to do with the diagnosis and blame themselves for it. With Epilepsy, newly diagnosed individuals usually have a hard time coming to terms that they have a seizure disorder. In a way, it is kind of like they are denying it and are embarrassed. I’m here to tell you that no one should be ashamed at all that they have a lifelong medical condition. All you have to do is ROCK IT!!!! Throw a little bit of self- confidence in there and you will be okay. Everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin.
Even though I have had Epilepsy for twenty years, it is not so bad. I know. That’s easy for me to say. Just have a positive mindset and you will see that life will take you to wonderful places. Denying your problems is not there is not the proper way to live your life. Accepting it will make you feel a whole lot better. Negative energy brings on a negative mindset. You do not want that. Life will take you places if your mindset is PERFECT!!!!
Acceptance is the key!!!!
