Great Question HJ, for me a simple quote. "Tough times never last, but Tough People Do" I remembered this every time i was facing another treatment, surgery, procedure, or each time I heard, "just a little stick"! The mind is the most powerful thing around, what the mind of man can conceive, and believe, it can achieve. That's another.
Lots more will answer tonight and tomorrow. This should be good.
Glad your here and thanks for posting
