Releasing the Identity of Being "Sick"
Chronic Symptoms • 12m
When you've been sick for quite some time, you might start to identify as being chronically ill, that "sick" person in the room that can't do things your "healthy" friends can do.
Anyone relate to this?
You might forget who you were without these symptoms.
You might forget how you'd like to be spending your time if you didn't feel you had to constantly seek answers and research new treatment options, if you didn't feel so tired and overwhelmed all the time...
Part of healing is releasing identifying with being "chronically ill" and re-learning that you are in fact not your diagnosis.
There is something perfectly whole, healthy, and vital that serves as the witness to all of the symptoms your physical body is experiencing right now.
If you enjoyed this video, feel free to share with someone who would also benefit from the reminder.
