Sometimes, suffering and incapacity are due to a disease or diseases.
Often, suffering and incapacity are due to our minds and our bodies RESPONDING ( ie an immediate, but dysfunctional, tactic to survive) to diseases and traumas.
Later in life, this tactic, this dysfunction, no longer serves the original purpose of helping us survive a horrible situation. Now this tactic, this dysfunction, gets in the way of our mental health, physical health, relationships, ability to enjoy life, and our ability to hold down a job.
