Recovery as an adventure

“What sets apart people who recover from serious illness is they find the illness a challenge and an opportunity for personal growth.  They tackle the illness actively rather than being passive recipients of a doctor’s treatment.  They go to every source for information, are open-minded about unconventional therapies, try everything. They feel empowered by the discoveries they make to take control of their illness and indeed their lives.”

Great quote, isn’t it?  Now if only we could remember which doctor said it…
