Don't let the things you can't do interfere with the things you can do"There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried."
Ralph Waldo Emerson in Self Reliance

 Overcoming Disabilities Despair
 9 Steps for talking away what's getting you down. Michael D. LeBow PhD C. Psych (2011). 
Disabilities Stink?
Life gives everybody things they can?t control. Sometimes, even the most capable and productive people hit against a personal limitation and get discouraged over things they can?t do. With some of us, it can be something relatively small, like aches and pains that limit ability to play with our grandchildren, small disappointments. For others, the barriers and hurdles may be much more substantial.
So what do you do when life hands you a major setback? Do you quit, sink into despair and wait for something good to happen to get you past the depression? This book offers practical help.

Dr. Michael LeBow knows intimately the challenges of despair?but more than that? in Overcoming Disabilities Despair he reveals a systematic approach using Cognitive Therapy to rise above, attack and defeat the disabilities despair that can block us from effective happy living. While light-heartedly sharing some of his own stories of frustration, Dr. LeBow walks us through practical systematic tools and procedures to reclaim optimism.
Michael D. LeBow   Himself disabled for the past 30 years  by multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, Dr. LeBow is still a therapist, teacher, writer, and researcher. Currently he is Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Manitoba.  He  resides in Winnipeg with his wife and one of his sons.
