The Eight Year Road

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. VJ, your painful journey reminds me of all the people I know who have been in that lowest place and how alone they must feel. I am so glad your story had a happy ending and that resilience will find a way. You impress me and I wish you all the best in days to come.

  2. You’re such a strong woman VJ. As Lou said above, you’ve overcome something that would cause others to just give up. I love that you’ve found renewed purpose through your recent work with people who are fleeing a war they didn’t ask for and didn’t deserve. As you deal with what I’m assuming is a bit of a setback (base on your comment about being reminded you’re not cured) I pray you’ll continue to feel that sense of purpose and that your body will cooperate in helping you get back to at least your baseline soon. Sending hugs your way!

  3. Beautiful and inspiring, as always, VJ. What a journey you’ve had and you seem to have a gift for extracting the wisdom and resilience from it! I’ve loved following your story with the Ukranians — and I’m so glad to know of the back story. Sending my best!
