This is too important a part of a successful plan of treatment to be neglected. The gloomy despondency must be steadily combated by a determination to be cheerful. The disposition to fret and worry, and to dwell upon the unpleasant or painful features of the disease, must be fought against with firmness and resolution. The dyspeptic who allows his mind to constantly dwell upon his stomach, and who speculates upon the probabilities respecting the digestion of each morsel of food as he swallows it, will be certain to remain a dyspeptic. This unfortunate tendency on the part of dyspeptics is a great impediment to recovery in many cases. The mind must be diverted from self as much as possible at all times, and especially while eating. The habit many dyspeptics have of talking constantly about themselves, sometimes amounting almost to a monomania, cannot be too strongly condemned. Too great solicitude about the stomach, diet, etc., is worse than none at all.
