What are ways you cope with stress, disease-related or otherwise? Personally, I make an effort to do some form of exercise daily to lower my stress level, but exercising was not always possible for me before my transplant. I found drawing and writing to be good outlets for me that did not require as much energy.
I use the app Stop, Breathe & Think when I am feeling pain/anxious/depressed… it has enabled me to refocus, calm – it’s free. I don’t have a budget to pay for anything. My health dept & benefits plan also have some free help/online apps to help with guided meditation. Those are free too.
