Just when you thought you could finally settle into your routine and take it easy… a problem comes up.
Maybe you’ve hit a snag with your insurance provider. Your doctor is leaving the practice and you have to find a new one. A side effect of a new treatment. Another diagnosis. Or one of the other challenges that can pop along the way when your living with a chronic condition.
Problems leave us with a decision to be made. Possible solutions to consider. And, most likely, lots of feelings.
Let’s face it: Making decisions about your health can be scary. Why? Well, for one reason, problems remind us that life can feel pretty uncertain at times. Who wants to be reminded of that? Also, solving a problem may involve a lot of time and energy when you may not be feeling up to the challenge. And – worse yet – solving your problem may mean making some kind of a change. And humans aren’t all that good with making changes.
