You felt it as soon as you woke up in the morning: A bad day ahead. Or, another bad day.
If you are living with a chronic condition, a bad day can mean not feeling all that great, having to take it easy, maybe cancel some plans. But it can also mean not being able get out of bed.
A bad day can be a pretty lonely experience, suffering while it seems like everybody else in the world, or at least your world, is doing what they usually do. Being alone with the thoughts can run through your mind may cause you to turn up the volume on your bad day, to ask yourself questions like what this means for your future. All that thinking can set off more alarms, including some that don’t need to be set off. Along with feelings like fear, disappointment, and frustration.
Something to consider: How you think about your bad day – your perspective – can impact how you experience it. However, by changing your thinking, you can also help yourself to cope.
