How do you live with illness while maintaining a sense of self?  How does a person avoid becoming their illness, and how can healers avoid medicalizing a person to the point where they no longer feel human?  If you have a story to tell about how you’ve managed this, and about what the healers in your life have done to help you on the way, share it with me at [email protected].  Still struggling with being you in the face of everything, or not getting the support you need from your healers?  I want to hear about that, too.
