Just admit it…
Your sick and tired of feeling “sick and tired”.
One cry away from being “all cried out”.
Taking pills for “this” or “that”…Distressed by the number of pills you’re forced to take, or resentful because there’s not a pill to treat your condition.
What if you possessed control over the prescriptions you’re being administered?
I get it… the physicians in control… in possession of a magical prescription (RX) notepad that grants access to a rainbow of drugs that can treat MANY symptoms you’re battling.
While this is true… maybe it’s best we’re not granted full access to this magical prescription pad. We might soon find ourselves with another problem – ADDICTION!
Alright, let’s agree to leave legal-drug-pushing to the professionals, but…
Have you considered writing out your own “Daily RX”?
Call me crazy, but I’m going to bet on someone… YOU!
I’m going to bet that YOU can safely write yourself out a daily RX that strengthens your inner-spirit.
I’m not going to get woo-woo or preachy on you, however, I’m going to challenge you to develop a plan to combat the dark emotions that accompany chronic illness…
A plan that helps you withstand: Anger… fear… stress… worry…
A daily RX, you prescribe, focused on enhancing your quality of life.
Unless your physician is Patch Adams, you won’t be prescribed the following RX list:
- Watch a funny YouTube clip.
- Make your bed.
- Take a shower and brush your teeth .
- Open your windows to let in some fresh air
- Write for 15 minutes on any topic of your choosing
- Send an email off to someone you admire
- Read something uplifting for 15 minutes
Seems silly, right?
Person A: Chooses not to wear a life jacket while kayaking.
Person B: Chooses to be properly fitted for a life jacket that may save his/her life in case the kayak capsizes.
Uplifting, daily RX lists, are your properly fitted life jacket! An important part of your safety equipment that keeps you from drowning into the emotional, dark, murky waters of chronic illness.
I’m hopeful with regular use, you may start to see the positive side effects!
Dont sabotage, just start!
My list often contains 3-4 daily prescriptions. (If you’re hesitant, start experimenting with just one daily RX!) There’s no “right” or “wrong” way to do this.
I use a whiteboard, but i’m considering purchasing my own RX pad!
Are you open to sharing what you’ll consider adding to your daily RX? If so, comment below.
PS: If you suffer from anger… fear… stress… worry… etc. on a daily basis, please consult with your physician! Hugs, and know your’re not alone! There’s help out there.
