Does your loved one ever feel discouraged by their 'life-limiting' illness?

Fifty-five years ago Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with ALS and was given 2 years to live. He surpassed his prognosis by 53 years with dozens of publications, books, prizes, films and companies. Surely, upon receiving his diagnosis, he felt discouraged just as your loved one might feel. Try reminding your loved one from time to time what are their strengths. This way they can try doing what they are good at and worry less about what abilities they no longer have.
