Illness – by Susan Sontag [Life Notes]
Illness is the night side of life, a more onerous citizenship.
Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick.
Although we all prefer to use the good passport, sooner or later each of use is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place.”
― Susan Sontag
This is a fact of life. Be prepared to accept and respond to illness as best as you can.
