What are some natural ways to cure emotional stress involved with a disability?

Change the view. A close friend of mine recently lost his 38 y/o wife. In asking how he was coping, he explained to me how he has "changed his view" of things and looks at his loss as an "opportunity." his tragic loss is now an opportunity; and opportunity to be closer to his kids, an opportunity to be a better father, even an opportunity to redecorate his house. Change how we look at things, make opportunities.
