I cried. Michael Vogiatzakis’s testimony is very moving and says a lot that we need to hear.
I have been having trouble concentrating on writing lately - caregiving for elderly parents is a lot of work and my own health goes up and down. I over-exert and then have to nap more for a day or two.
Grieving is a process that we work through (or don’t) after any major change. Whether a bad diagnosis, death of a loved one, changes related to normal aging, divorce, or other calamity - we have to work through the emotional pain and acceptance that things are different now. Clinging to the old ways, the familiar and comfortable, can just make things worse over time, because there was change.
I wrote a post about the stages of grieving - anyone suffering lingering illness has some work to do accepting that life is no longer as comfortable and easy as it once was. Now what? Cry? or learn more about self-care and chronic inflammation? Or cry and then learn more?

“The true mark of maturity is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back.”
An anthropologist (whose name I forget) wrote or said that the earliest signs of civilization is a healed leg bone on an ancient skeleton. That indicates that other people cared enough about the person to help them long enough for the major fracture to heal - providing food and other help until the person could fend for themselves again.
Current civilization seems to be focused on helping some at the expense of others - helping the rich keep getting richer. That is a parasite, not a civilized person or community.
We all have some grieving to do - after taking the blinders off.
