Does everyone think a positive attitude makes a difference? Does it really affect the final outcome?
I'm not sure.
I was very ill with many complications after my sharkbite. When I woke on a ventilator in ICU, I felt so dreadful I wanted to die. I thought, I'm old, I'm going to die soon anyway, so let me die now and escape this horror. I tried hard to will my heart to stop beating.
But here I am, five years later, feeling OK, and very glad all that negativity didn't affect the outcome!
