Think Positively

If I had a penny for every time someone told me to think positively, I’d be rich. And if positive thinking could actually cure me I wouldn’t have a chronic debilitating disease and other issues.

Unfortunately it is not a cure. And all people actually accomplish is to make me feel bad that I am not strong enough to overcome Meniere’s Disease. I know that it’s not my fault just as I know that positive thinking won’t make me feel better. It just makes me better able to accept my life as it is.

So many people offer advice, but they don’t have Meniere’s. They may have had vertigo or tinnitus, and something may have worked for them, but none of us are the same and a chronic debilitating disease isn’t easy to fix, otherwise it wouldn’t be a chronic debilitating disease.

So, before you offer advice to someone do your research to find out what works. Don’t just say think positively or use ginger or whatever your cure is. Don’t you think that I have tried everything aside from getting injections in my ears and having a labyrinthectomy that destroys the hearing and vestibular functions of the ear. I am bilateral so those aren’t an option.

I choose to take one day at a time and not worry about what may happen. Getting rid of the stress have been the most helpful advice that my doctor gave me.

I hope this helps those with “helpful” advice think twice before saying anything.

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
