Emotions relating to chronic illness

I was thinknig recently that i was going through grief...i wanted to try to explain to my family, that i feel i must grieve my 'nerve'. I have been feeling something similar but milder than grief after losing a loved one..i browsed online and found this fantastic article that hit the nail on the head completely. I thought i would put the link here in case any of you want to read it: http://www.umass.edu/fsap/articles/ill.html

Thanks for sharing this, it really does put into words a lot of my personal thoughts and feelings. Really great read.

Good article, Mangamel, thanks for sharing! I especially like the part where the author writes about the choices we must make - that's spot on!

Wow, that's great!
