Story published on The Mighty – A Grief That Never Ends

Hi folks! Just an update that I’ve had another story published on The Mighty. It is about the continual process of grieving through chronic illness, and how so few people can really cope with others’ grief.

You can read more on: The Ongoing Process of Grief When You Have a Chronic Illness.

  1. Good post. The grief never ends, no, but I’ve found that over time I’ve been able to let it go. Because it is so dang exhausting to grieve all the time. (I have MS, diagnosed in 94). It’s also a choice – where do I want to put my energy? Not into grieving, that’s for sure. I much prefer making and creating. I’ve also made the choice to look for the hidden blessings, and to be totally oblivious to what might have been if not… Though I must admit, I do slip from time to time.


    1. I’m glad you’ve come to terms with your illness in some way. I think even the kind of acceptance you describe is part of the grieving process, and we have to go through a lot of emotional turmoil to get there.

      1. Yes, it didn’t happen the year I was diagnosed, that’s for sure. Nor the next, but actually the one after. Thanks to Caroline Myss and Anatomy of the Spirit. Working through that book and being 100% honest with my answers did wonders. Before then I had no idea how good forgiveness feels. Resentment is such a heavy burden.
