Dealing with illness


Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but I've been thinking about how different we can react to similar events/life challenges/lockdown.


I came across this interview with Amy Callaghan, the MP who had an SAH earlier this year. It's interesting and honest perspective on dealing with serious illnesses (she's also had cancer twice). 



It reminded me of a song written by Julie Matthews called "The sum of what I am". It was written for a  Radio 2 program which was interviewing a number of people who had HIV/Aids. I think I heard this just after my mum first became ill and it really struck a chord with me. We've all been through a major life event, but that isn't just who we are. We're much more than that.
