Do you need to be well? The answer to this question seems obvious. Who wouldn’t need to be well? Life would be so much different and I would be free. What does that freedom look like? How would new life look?
Many of us suffering from long term chronic illnesses have become very used to the lives we are living. Rutted paths can be very hard to change. It takes a lot of thinking to uncover our motivations and the roots of our illness. Even if we are offered a magic pill we may still have doubts about taking it.
There is magic or there is no magic. Is the choice ours? What do we do when we are well? What is life going be like without the illness? What will I do with all of the energy that I put into managing my condition?
These are questions that need to be asked as we are recovering.
