The tunnel feels so very dark. Taken by B Babcock June 2016.

The light at the end of the tunnel is something we often strive towards during dark times like when we’re dealing with a challenging health issue. Even when it feels like it’s not there or we can’t see it just yet. 

When someone is in the acute phase of an illness or injury, 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 people I work with often ask is…

Is there light at the end of the tunnel?

I believe there is.

It may take time until the light appears or we find it. The 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 create that light at the end of the tunnel.
