Practice Gratefulness

It's easy to start feeling sorry for yourself after getting a stent. You imagine your future will strongly resemble that of a gerbil. A steady diet of raw veggies and plain water, and hours upon hours on the exercise wheel. Try not to let yourself wallow in such thoughts. Instead, focus on the wonderful gift you've been given. You might call it a dodged bullet, a second chance, or several years bought. Whatever you call it, you'll fare much better if you view yourself as lucky, rather than unlucky.
