Accepting the consequences of (fill in the blank), in this case CIDP, may well follow the standard process of grief recovery.
And, it is very useful to write down what you can do while trying your best to ignore what you cannot do. Any sort of positive Mantra is also good. Recall ‘The Little Engine That Could.’

It is called “Behavior Modification.”
Dwelling on what you cannot do and refusing to accept your limitations are a sure receipe for disaster.
