How does positive thinking relate to doctors not being completely candid about a patients diagnosis or prognosis? It seems to me there might be some kind of connection there. Is there some kind of psychobabble explanation for that? Or is there really merit to somehow keeping a certain group of people in the dark about their illness? It seems to me truth is the most spiritual thing around and I can't see personally trying to live any other way. I suffered for years because doctors never gave me a straight answer on what was wrong with me. I went from doctor, to doctor, to doctor, and essentially postponed my life. Always hoping things would change or get better. I actually led to me living in complete denial and prevented me from getting treatment earlier. Not only that, but I practically lost everything because of being in some kind of bizarre trance about the reality of my situation. I have finally come to peace with my real situation and am much happier knowing where I stand. I now focus on finding simple pleasures that I can do here and there more frequently. I still like to think I may be able to ride off road motorcycles again, run again, or actually think again, but I'm not waiting around for anything.
