When chronic illness becomes your friend – This may sound like a strange title to some and also a little confusing as no one ever wants to be sick. More importantly, who in their right mind would want to be friends with their illness?
This is true – no one wants to be identified as their illness and certainly, no one wants to do anything that would encourage their body to be in a diseased state, however, the mind is a wonderful thing in that it will adjust and manage trauma in a way that allows you to move forward. This is something I have not only seen in myself but also seem in many patients challenged by chronic illness.
