"Life is too short. I can't control everything in my life. Trying to is exhausting!!" - member of MyEpilepsyTeam
When first faced with an epilepsy diagnosis, a common fear is a lack of control over our health. How could our bodies betray us? How do we grab the reins back and fix the situation? Living with a chronic disease forces us to recognize what we can and cannot control.
Members on MyEpilepsyTeam have various strategies for letting go of control and fear, including: 1) using guided imagery to visualize letting go 2) opening up and trusting others 3) organizing or cleaning the house 4) reaching out for support from other members onMyEpilepsyTeam
