I don’t generally identify with the idea of the chronic illness “warrior” (because fighting isn’t really a choice…), but this selection from my poem, “The Year I Came Home From the War,” borrows from that metaphor, mostly because there is a kind of trauma we experience when living with chronic disease that people don’t often see or recognize.
My book, INTENTION TREMOR, explores more of these lived experiences following an MS diagnosis. It’s my hope that writing this book will make a difference by helping the newly diagnosed understand and prepare for their own journey going forward.
Buying my book (100% of sales profits go to @acceleratedcure4ms) makes it easy to make a difference in 2022: by doing so, you support the arts, artists, people with MS, and medical research.
Want to do this? It’s really simple: Buy a copy for yourself, a friend, your doctor’s office, your library… and #makeadifference
