I have only posted a couple of times, but I wonder about how attitude affects pc. It seems to me that bad attitudes may cause pc to get worse, while a good attitude makes pc get better. But that would mean that people who have pc and get worse only have themselves to blame, which seems unfair. Also, what is a good attitude? I've seen that term used a lot. As I started thinking about it, it seemed that it wasn't as clear to me. Does it mean you have to be happy while you have pc? What does, fight pc mean (another term often used). Does that mean you always have to take treatment no matter what? Don't mean to be so academic, but my girl friend was just diagnosed with pc and I don't know what to say to her. She gets mad when I tell her that she should not be sad. She told me that I don't know what I'm talking about and don't tell her not to feel what she feels. I think she is right that I don't know what I'm talking about. Thanks from Florida
