You can cope with a disability in many ways, including:

  • Taking Charge of Your Disability.
    When talking with your doctor, don't be afraid to ask a lot of questions about your medical care. Your chances of recovering rise with understanding why you are ill and how the treatment works. Make a decision about which doctor is the best one for you.
  • Gathering Family and Friends Around You for Support.
    Share your fears and troubles with others who care about you.
  • Practicing Techniques for Achieving Inner Peace.
    If you are religious, prayer is helpful. Keep a daily journal of thoughts and feelings; feel free to write anything you want. Practice breathing and meditation techniques.
  • Using Affirmations.
    Write down positives about: 1) something somebody did for you; 2) something that happened to you; 3) something you did for someone else; and 4) something you did for yourself.
