I’ve been reading through the book, The Secret, by Dr. Phil McGraw. It’s a talk and a book about life, love, relationships, and being at peace. It is filled with so many good advice, but I particularly liked this quote from Dr. Phil: “There is a difference between being sick and being in great health.
The difference between being sick and being in great health is a psychological one. It’s easy to dismiss the physical symptoms of illness as trivial and easy to ignore the mental ones. But, it is important to be aware of how your mind is functioning and to recognize it’s negative or positive.
The difference between being sick and being in great health is actually quite nuanced. It is important to recognize just how sick your body is and how it is functioning. With that, I would suggest taking some time to find out exactly what is happening to you. For example, my father has been in and out of hospitals for a number of years (as a young man, he would still be in his mid to late 30s when he was diagnosed with cancer).
Cancer is a disease, and it doesn’t matter how many hospital visits you have or how healthy your diet is, if your immune system is not functioning properly, your body will not produce the immune response that it should. This is very important because it can make it harder to survive, especially in the case of a serious illness.
I remember when my father’s doctor told us that we need to take him to the doctor every six months so that his immune system would be working better. It was a lot of work, but it was not just that, his doctor also warned us to not run the risk of him getting sick. We did not take him to the doctor, because I was not sure that his health was as good as it could. I think he had some kind of virus, but I’m not sure.
I’m not sure how much good it does if you don’t take care of yourself. Maybe if you took care of yourself first you wouldn’t have to be so careful about taking care of others. However, I’m guessing that taking care of yourself before taking care of others is easier said than done. But maybe that is just my own over-reaction.
No. He also has a bunch of other health problems too, including a very un-healthy metabolism.
So after I read that I did something very bad. I took my meds and then took them two hours later. I also drank a ton of calories. I should have just taken my meds and not drank my calories. But at that point I just needed extra calories. So I ended up sleeping less, eating more, and taking more meds.
So why do I want to take care of others? Because you can’t just be a good person you know, like you are. After all, taking care of others will probably be more rewarding than taking care of yourself. You can become so good at caring for others that you aren’t even aware you are doing it.
I think this is why I love your blog so much, because you always seem to be taking care of others. You don’t think about it, you don’t think about the calories you consume or drink, you just do them. You take care of others not out of self-preservation, but because you want to help them. And that makes all the difference.
