This post comes from a recent experience but one I’ve had many times before. When someone is in the acute phase of an illness, for example like Transverse Myelitis (rare neurological auto-immune disorder that can result in disability and the outcomes for recovery are unknown and uncertain), the question they ask is, ‘Is there light at the end of the tunnel?’
I believe there is.
But that light may look different from the light we expected. There is and will continue to be light and it will be different than before the condition/illness’s onset, accident or injury.
And it is up to us to make that light appear.
