A friend once asked me to share how “personal courage” shaped my medical outcomes, wanting to know more about how I do it. How is it that I walk when I shouldn’t be able to?
How is it that I see when I nearly lost my sight? How is it that I seem to shape my outcomes to be as positive as possible? It’s truly not courage, not for me.
It is survival. Every day I spend just literally staying alive. When you’re told you are sick and will never get better, it changes your world in unexpected ways.
