No One

No one really talks about what happens if you’re sick and you don’t get better; but you don’t die either. You get to live in the margins because it’s either/or. You’re either getting sick or you’re getting better. There’s no in between in our culture or Society. No room for the Chronically Ill.

    SO true. And it’s so hard for healthy people to understand this. I try to be patient with my Mom, but it really frustrates me that she says *all the time* “I don’t understand why Doctors can’t help you”. That same statement, every time I talk to her, for near 8 years. It makes me literally, crazy. It’s a huge gray area for people to comprehend getting sick and *never* getting better. Great “blip”. Thanks!!
