So, just a quick quote today. It's amazing how often I read something that resonates with me with respect to living with chronic illness in an unexpected place. This was a middle-grade book, Murder at Midnight by Avi, that I recently reviewed at Great Books for Kids and Teens, my kids' book review blog:
It was the Greek philosopher Heraclitus who said,"If we do not expect the unexpected, we will never find it."
- Murder at Midnight by Avi
This pretty much sums up my feelings about hope. Despite all the data that few people fully recover from CFS, I still expect to improve over time and perhaps even recover. I expect that medical research will continue to progress in time to help both me and my sons.
For more on hope, check out these blog posts I wrote a few years ago on Chronic Illness & Hope and Hope, Part 2.
Hope you're having a good weekend!
