Thank you for writing this. It helped me a lot, especially your wisdom about plans and patience. Everyone’s pain is uniquely their own. It’s probably the least sharable experience I know. But how our individual pain intersects with real life hopes and perceptions of time lost is shared territory. I’m, like, if pain makes her feel almost demented and almost like throwing up and she still wrote this, then what I am waiting for? Then I did some googling and learned more about your impressive body of work. Thanks again.
