Here are some incredibly wise words from Scottx5. He shared these in a comment, but they deserve to be more prominent. And repeated frequently.
Illness has a lot to do with sense making. That first you are a person and that matters. And you are a person with the ability to reason and solve things and even if the answer doesn’t “fix” you back to where you want to be, you are an active participant.
These words pull together my whole life.
Thank you for sharing them Scott!
