@selene @ilovethaifood I think that the key is to control intrusive thoughts.
Once you control intrusive thoughts everything falls into place.
For example, I can be grumpy about not being able to exercise through rowing doing hundreds/thousands
of repetitions at high intensity(because my arms don’t hold up), or on the other hand I can be grateful to be able to swim much and row perhaps 100 strokes at a time.
I can be grumpy about my severe cognitive and social dysfunction but on the other hand I can be grateful that
I have parents to care for me .
So you see, your viewpoint matters much more than the objective situation, in most cases
I believe there are both positive and negative things but you choose what to focus on.
