A major thing I’ve learned in my 17 years with bilateral Menieres, is to surround yourself with people who push you to do better. In life, and especially living with MD (Meniere’s Disease), there’s no room for drama and negativity; just higher goals and bigger motivation, good times and positive energy.
Google says salt is our biggest trigger. I can’t argue googled sites but, I can tell you I learned from real MD warriors that emotional stress seems to trump salt. We are all the same yet different. However, I rarely see anyone post that stress of any kind is not a trigger.
Every warrior will get knocked down at some point. But don’t ever let someone, something, life or MD itself-ever knock you out.
Just like a boxing match, you need to fight. You’ll take some hits. And then, you need to go back to the corner to “rest”. That is where you will find all the wonderful groups you belong to cheering you on with advice, support, inspiration, and sometimes even laughter. Just remember in the ring, nobody is going to go as hard for you as YOU. We’ll be beside the ropes cheering you on. In the words of Ali, “Now, I’m going to show you how great I am.”
Do exactly that! ❤
