  • Chronically not getting it done?
    I know that this post is overdue.  It  should have been here days ago.  But I feel horrible and it’s not because it’s cold and raining hard on a July day when it should be hot and sunny.   It’s because of the (bleep) gastritis, a recent add-on to my body’s long list of things […]

  • Work. What does it do for you?
    When I left the paid workforce, I had two young children, a husband, and a job I liked a lot, paid well and was generally considered a plum position.  I didn’t do this wanting a different lifestyle.  I wasn’t confronting an organizational mandatory retirement age. No, I was living with multiple sclerosis and ulcerative colitis […]

  • Do you slide between “Kingdom of the Sick” and kingdom of well?
    It was a beautiful, hot August day in 1979, when I lost vision in one eye and couldn’t lift my body.  After several years of vague neurological symptoms, I had a diagnosis: Multiple Sclerosis.  I was lucky. It took a  few months but I got my sight and energy back fully and could return to work and life as I’d known it. […]

  • Getting push back when you ‘Just Say No’?
    Can you relate to this?   “Sarah (her 12 year old daughter) is so angry with me.  She doesn’t understand why I don’t go to her weeknight basketball games, like every other parent. Or why I don’t willingly spend hours with her at the mall each weekend.  I’ve told her I can’t physically do that stuff.  I want to spend time with her but […]

  • What’s Your Normal?
    Normal.  It’s become a ‘buzz word’ in political discussion.   I’ve heard it used frequently over the past 2 decades in my work with people who live with chronic illness.  But this new context has led me to wonder about what it means and how does it impact our view of ourselves and our lives?  When do we […]

  • What can you contribute?
    Does it seem like everyone you know is able bodied and able to consistently ‘show up’?  Do you feel helpless and maybe even a little sorry for yourself because you can’t attend a ‘town hall’ or march with thousands?  The emails pour in telling me how important my presence is at some rally or another.  Those emails […]

  • Can making a choice from fear be good for your health?
    There are times when listening to a client’s story brings on waves of sadness.  In my coaching work, it’s usually not the story’s details but what it represents that gets to me.   When my client told me that she’d taken a full time job, knowing that it could likely land her in the hospital again, I felt […]

  • Can you, will you, March?
    I didn’t think that this blog was the place to talk about my very strong feelings about the results of the November U.S. election.  And since I’m not comfortable avoiding the elephant in the room, I’ve chosen to remain silent.   But two things have happened that lead me to post this today, Inauguration Day:  the […]
  • What does fear, despair and aging got to do with resilience?
    A colleague emailed that she’d been quite sick lately.  “It’s the chronic stuff … old and familiar.  Unfortunately it doesn’t get emotionally easier or less frightening as years go by.  It surprises me how the chronic still sends me reeling- – after all this time and experience with it!” I was surprised.  She’d never spoken of […]
  • What do you do when facing the unpredictable?
    For the past 24 hours, all of my conversation and emails have touched on (and sometimes consumed) the surprising U.S. election results.  This includes friends and family, clients and colleagues, social media friends, even people I passed in contact briefly.  They’ve shared this in common: reactions that vary from despair and depression, shock and fear, bewilderment. Obviously, there […]
  • Are You RTW from being on SSA benefits?
    I get frequent inquiries about RTW (returning to work) after receiving SSA (social security administration) disability benefits.  So I’m happy to share an article written by  the ‘Outreach Team at Disability Benefits Help’.  If this is of interest, read on and be sure to pass it on to anyone whom you think might be interested.

  • Has the music stopped for you?
    A mutual colleague introduced us, writing in his email, “You should know each other.”  When I looked at Bob Cafaro’s website and learned about his experience and his book, “When the Music Stopped: My Battle and Victory against MS”, I understood why.  This guy was deeply involved with what illness does to the body and the spirit.  Yet, I’ve […]
