Finding Acceptance in Your Diagnosis to Heal with Megan Evans

core connections Apr 02, 2024

Wanna know the most important element in healing a diagnosis or symptom?

… Acceptance.

… And then it’s befriending it.

… And then it’s communicating with it.

Here’s the thing: I know (I know, I know) that acceptance FEELS very challenging… and that’s why people resist it. But it’s necessary.

And one of my favorite examples of this is Megan Evans, founder and creator of The MS Stage and The MS Stage Method.

When she was diagnosed with MS, she resisted accepting her diagnosis for 14 years. Then, she hit rock bottom. She decided to accept that MS was in her life so she could work with her diagnosis instead of fighting it.

Spoiler alert: Her symptoms became her superpower.

In this episode, you’ll learn the importance of acceptance in healing, strategies for becoming friends with your diagnosis or symptoms, and practical tips for communicating with your body to facilitate healing.
