Sallycares.com is providing general information related to a number of medical conditions, and more will be added as we grow. The purpose here is not to place general information in these areas that you can find all over the internet. I will be placing new information and links to resources for the various areas, but our focus is on managing the symptoms that you are living with every day. Medical Conditions that are discussed are: Breathing Problems, Diabetes, Health and Wellness issues, Neurological Problems and Weight Management.
For example; when memory becomes a challenge we will look at the specific problems that reduced memory is demonstrating in the home, and give you ideas associated with how to manage them. Problems with managing your bathing or dressing due to physical limitations you have begun to experience will be discussed, and options for managing the problems will be suggested.
One thing you have to be aware of is how important it is to stay on top of whatever disease process you are dealing with. You want to do your research. You want to know if you are doing all you can do related to reducing the symptoms you are experiencing. Many times exercise and just increasing your general activity is helpful, even when pain is one of the symptoms you are trying to reduce.
Engaging in an activity that has meaning or enjoyment for you is very helpful. When you can get up every morning and do your daily activities, not be exhausted from them (because you are using energy conservation techniques), and you have the energy to do something that takes you outside of yourself and focus on something or someone else, it is very healing.
Negative emotions and negative energy are things that we need to discourage within us. They are not helpful. We can’t become more positive and reduce stress if we focus on the negative.
Disease causes people to have to change their lives. Living with pain, limited strength, problems with balance and difficulty walking are just a few of the problems people deal with every day.
What if we didn’t focus on them? What if we just accepted that they exist and we need to focus our energy on something positive? What would it be?
I often tell people that they begin to heal (sometimes emotionally – but not physically), when they 1. Understand what is wrong with them 2. Learn how to manage the condition.
In medicine we cure very few things. We treat diseases. Join Sallycares.com to learn more.
