I have been working on my book about living with chronic illness and am back to making progress after taking a bit of a break. I would like some input from you, if you are willing and have it to give.
Today I am thinking about the grieving process that comes along with any traumatic event – like facing a chronic illness. I have previously posted about the grief triggers I have experienced and have been pretty open about the fact that the first couple years into the journey of living with EDS were pretty rough. It is much better now that time has mellowed the grief, but the grief is always hovering just under the surface.
I won’t share my thoughts on grief and grieving here, as I have written ad nauseum about it in the past! If you want my thoughts on the grieving process, just click on the embedded links to go to posts where I have written at length about it.
I would like your thoughts on your chronic illness experiences with:
The 5 Stages of Grief
By ‘thoughts’ I mean I would love to have a paragraph or two from you that I could incorporate into this particular chapter. Anyone with chronic illness is welcome to share, it doesn’t have to be EDS.
