Accepting that which I don't like

I've been struggling some with the concept of acceptance lately. I haven't written much about this, but I seem to be getting sicker and sicker and no matter what I do, I am afraid I will never feel or function better. I've started to feel very depressed again, angry that I'm still in pain, fatigued and anxious. That plus the imbalances I've started to have in my body (thyroid and a few other things and possible Fibromyalgia on top of my RSDS/CRPS (that hasn't been diagnosed but it's hard to deal with nonetheless). It's hard to feel acceptance, especially because I have associate acceptance with giving up. I don't wanto give up and accept that my body and life are the way they are.

So anyway, in my work with guided imagery and biofeedback I've been gently working on helping my body and mind to heal. I've been working with a CD called"Reduce Stress and Anxiety". I got it from
Health Journeys
but his site is
Success World"

Anyway, I've started to realize that I can accept my body, my life and even my faith and what I feel God is doing to me even if I don't like it. I can give my body love, care and acceptance without giving up my desire to improve my health, life, relationships and mental health. I don't know what this means yet, but it's an interesting breakthrough, even if not an easy one to understand.
