Attitude is an element of health. Many people are comfortable with their illnesses. I am sure you have met some of these people, you know the ones, if they felt good they would have nothing to talk about. I am not saying when you get sick it is because you have a bad attitude. Persistent lingering illnesses can challenge ones attitude. Illness comes first followed by depression, which has an effect on an individuals recovery. Perhaps, attitude can be best explained by this true story.
