Beliefs

I have a very special friend, who is a fantastic counsellor/art therapist, but yesterday, she was telling me about a friend of hers who is a hypnotherapist and how she believes in power of the mind and that every day if we just believe in our ability to believe we have new cells every day, or words to that affect, we can get rid of the symptoms of MS. I can never speak up for myself, but it really got to me and still feel this way today. I told her that for months I had tried to battle these symptoms that were holding me back, and I said the wrong words, of, "it got me", meaning, I couldn't believe the lifestyle i was living, the healthiest I had ever been, food wise, exercise wise, and this began, I just don't know what to say to her, I am certainly not sat here thinking "oh ms, carry on messing up my body"...I just don't know what to say to her, but i think for the first time in her life, she has said the wrong thing...and should be careful what she believes in and how she puts it across. Positive thinking yes, I believe in that, as I have had issues with confidence, and I know the power of the mind can make you believe things that aren't even true,(self worth etc), but, positive thinking when you are trying your hardest to lift your foot to climb up a stair, or to walk far without your legs collapsing, well, it just doesn't work. I want to say this to her, but can't find a way.
