remembering: change things you can and embrace things you cant, its not going to change.
There is nothing that can change my condition, it is congenital and cannot be reversed
Communicating with other patients about this rare condition helps enormously.
I try to stay happy despite my health problems: true happiness is the state of your mind and inner self and it does not depend on external circumstances/Я стараюсь не терять радости, несмотря на болезнь
