One of the maddening things about medical crises is that it's so easy to be in a bad mood and stay stuck in it. The thing is like a monster, sucking life out of you and everyone trying to help you.
I know, you want to break out of this problem. So, here's an inspirational quote from a folk hero:
If you want to lift yourself up, lift up
someone else. ~Booker T. Washington
You can use this idea by praising the people at your beck and call. You can thank everyone for doing anything in your interest. Your words and actions can make moods pleasant. Go on, try it. Do it again and again until being gracious becomes automatic for you. You'll feel better in a heartbeat. Everybody else will be better off for it, too.
