The biggest challenge of recovery is having the true belief that you will recover. This is a disease that fights you every minute of every day. The first order of business is starting with the attitude that says, “I will recover,” and believing it. I tell people believe it. In order to recover you have to say, “They are incorrect. This is not incurable. I will get better.” There is a profound saying by Dr. Sha:
“I have the power to heal myself.
You have the power to heal yourself.
Together we have the power to heal the world.”
