Quick Tip Thursday: Focus on the Positive

Need to de-stress from the demands of diabetes? Instead of focusing on the downside of diabetes, look for what is going well and build from that.

Take a step back from your thoughts

I know we all know how easy it is to get caught up in negative thinking and how hard it is to get out. I used to think that I had to somehow fight my thoughts or force them away. But after practicing mental health exercises for so long, I've learned that a much better approach to overcome this challenge is to practice non-resistance to negative thinking and to practice passive awareness of it. Think of them like how if you watch a horror movie: you can be very engaged and feel the terror, but then you can also take a step back and remind yourself that you're simply watching the movie unfold, and then the terror doesn't have the same effect. If you remember to just witness your thoughts and emotions instead of getting engaged with them, does this bring you some peace? If it seems impossible, please keep practicing. This is possible, but it takes practice to be good just like everything else you've gotten good at in your life. Do you think you can incorporate this approach to intrusive thoughts in your life?

Also, I'm so grateful for all of you and would love to get to know you all better outside of The Mighty, so if you're on Instagram, feel free to reach out at:

~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

Feels like I am a burden

#Dementia #AlzheimersDisease

I need some guidance, I was diagnosed with AD at least 2 years ago. I am depressed, lonely, and sad most days. I feel my family (wife and son) leave me out of day-day activities and decisions cause I may not understand, which is probably right, but I get very emotional to find out things are happening at the last minute. I get the impression that my wife’s patience is just a tad short. I don’t know what else I can do. In addition I am in pain 24/7 with diabetes and other serious illness. I can’t drive and depend heavily on my wife. I have alienated my family in my recent outburst and I don’t see a way forward. Ty for any feedback.
