How Chronic Illness Can Steal Your Sunshine 02

And that is when I realized that I needed to be a duck.A wise friend once pointed out that from a distance, a duck on the water appears calm and peaceful. Yet when you get closer, you see how wildly their webbed feet are splashing and how hard they are actually working to keep that little duck body afloat. I can relate. I am sure you can too.

How is it going? …… “Just Ducky!”

而这时我意识到我需要像鸭子一样。一个明智的朋友曾经指出在远处看时鸭子在水里的时候是很冷静很平和,但当你走进的时候,你会看到它们的脚是多么疯狂的划着和它是多么辛苦的工作来保持自己的身体浮在水面上。我能够由此产生联想,我相信你也能。

你是怎么做到的?……..就像鸭子一样

I look fine, but I am actually working really hard to appear that way. The added stress, management, time, therapies, appointments, and lifestyle modifications that take place below the waterline may be frantic. But above the waves, I want to be graceful and glide.

So I started by collecting inspiring quotes, and made an effort to take a walk and claim quiet time each day. I talked to a counselor who provided the perfect place to dump all my negativity, and then be able to walk away from it. I made a bigger effort to find other things to talk about by engaging more in my interests and giving my brain a rest from thinking about illness. And over time, I began to feel better.

我看起来很好,但是实际上我真的很努力才让我看起来很好。新增的压力、管理、时间、治疗方法、约定、生活方式的改变都在水下狂乱的发生。但是水面上,我想要优雅和淡定。因此我开始收集鼓舞人心的语句、散一会步、每天有一段安静的时间给自己。我做出更大的努力去找其它事情去谈论去参与更多我感兴趣的,给我的大脑从想疾病中休息。随着时间的推移,我开始感觉更好了。

I even found a new website Happify that features games designed to train your brain to be more positive. It is one of several websites, based on neuroscience, that are part of the growing trend of positive psychology. Ironically, I approached the site with a lot of skepticism. But must admit, I am now hooked.

我甚至找到一个新的网站Happify有特色的游戏去训练你的大脑更积极。这是几个网站中的一个,基于神经科学,这是积极心理学的一部分发展趋势。讽刺地,我在接触这个网站时是充满怀疑的。但是必须承认,我现在入迷了。

Recognising the toll chronic illness was taking on my mindset prompted me to redirect my mental energy in a more healthy and optimistic way. Today, even though there are days that I may have to kick harder than others to stay afloat, I can honestly say I feel much more positive and content. I am not saying that venting doesn’t have its place. But for me, it needed to be contained so that it didn’t take over the whole pond.

认识到慢性疾病正改变我的心态促使我以更健康和积极的方式改变我的精神力量。今天,即使有一天我要比其他人付出更多努力才能浮在水面上,我能诚实的说我感觉更加积极和满足。我并不是说发泄没有了途径。但是对我来说,
