Yeah, people with chronic illness don’t necessarily like being molded into heroes or warriors.
For one thing, if they “lose” the “war,” that makes them less heroic because they failed. There’s no dignity in that.
Many many people who try, who power through, who give it their all, still succumb to the dark side of their disease (and yes, MS has casualties just like every other chronic illness).
People who are sick and/disabled are not superhuman. We don’t fight because we’re warriors, we simply persist and, if we’re lucky enough, we get to leave it behind or at least keep it from getting worse.
I wrote my book to guide others through the day-to-day discoveries that a new chronic illness diagnosis can bring.
Maybe my travels in, through, and back out again will help someone else. That is the theory… but it can only happen if they read it, right?
