Small Changes, Big Improvements
“I have an action plan, and I follow through on it.”
The part that helped me the most…
“I really liked hearing stories of others in the workshop. They would offer me advice and, since I work at a hospital, I often was able to do the same. Some people had issues with paying for their medications, and I was able to tell them about programs that may be available in their area that can help. ”
My life is different now because…
“I have an action plan, and I follow through on it. Even now, I still set goals for myself every week and track and monitor them. Being held accountable helps me stick to my plan.”
I was most surprised by...
"The fact that there were people from all over—some local and others nationwide. I don't have a lot of people with my same disease around me, so it was great to hear from others going through the same thing as me."
I'd want someone else to know...
“I liked the online program because I could do it whenever I wanted. It was easy to use. It was so nice to know that if I was feeling stressed, I could go to the bulletin boards and find people there who could give me an encouraging word."
