1.3. How Does This Course Work?
Lesson 3 Module 1
With that in mind, the course is framed in 3 sections;
ACCEPTANCE - ATTITUDE - ACTION
Next, we look at attitude and why you need to change your personal story to take into account the realities of living and thriving with kidney disease. Essentially I am asking you to strive to create a better version of yourself which encompasses "living" with kidney disease, and not "suffering" with kidney disease.
Finally, we look at 3 areas where you will put your positive attitude into practice. This involves taking action in areas that can move you towards a future of healthy outcomes and a better quality of life.
This follows my own learning and experiences in relation to overcoming adversity and is designed first and foremost with you as a fellow-patient of kidney disease in mind.
A few final things to consider, maintaining or returning to good health involves more than medical matters. We are more than our bodies. We are our minds, our hearts, we are our family, our community. If we are to recover, and live healthily with kidney disease, we need to take steps in aiding our own recovery. To take responsibility. Most people say the words “I suffer from kidney disease” and that is the language of a victim.
You are not taking this course with me to suffer and merely survive kidney disease. As your guide, I am here to empower and enable you to live an active, productive and worthwhile life. We will work through this together and your transformation from victim-hood to resilience will be something you will look to with pride.
