The hardest, most painful adjustment to life, post-diagnosis, is to your mental health, especially in the context of your social life. A major pillar of 21st century life is the grand delusion that illness is the exception to the rule, not the rule. I suspect this instills the proper sense of entitlement to health and wellness that allows employers to demand unsustainable hours of overtime each week. After all, you’re healthy, it’s just time! Ignore the mortality rate of pre-antibiotic generations that might suggest otherwise!
