“I’m just lazy,” I told myself. “Why can’t I do the things I need to do? I’m so exhausted and in pain all the time, I just want to sleep. Are my MS symptoms getting worse?”
My body was driving me crazy, and a lot was going on in my mind that I didn’t want to admit. I was struggling.
Three of the most challenging words to admit to yourself are “I am struggling.”
Recognizing when you’re struggling is good because it’s a wake-up call for change. It’s a chance to look internally and find the source of your sadness, anger, frustration, or whatever else you’re feeling deep inside.
It may be that your symptoms are not getting worse. Perhaps a source of internal conflict is occurring in your mind, causing you more stress. Maybe that is what’s affecting your symptoms.
The most common sources of internal conflict are related to health, wealth, or relationships. For me, it turned out I was struggling with all three, and I didn’t even realize it.
How do we deal with this internal conflict and minimize the stress?
