Carnival of Compassion #9

Welcome to the ninth edition of Carnival of Compassion, a weekly roundup of the "best of" recent patient blog posts.

Good advice and resources can make coping with illness a little easier.

Understanding how others perceive you and your illness is occasionally more difficult than managing the illness itself. Especially if you feel abandoned.

I’m convinced that the plot of most movies and books can be summed up by saying, "It’s about the resiliency of the human spirit." That’s something that patients have in common, too.

It’s shouldn’t surprise anyone that illness instigates many unexpected changes in life.

Sometimes the little things are the most important.

Being a patient can mean more than confronting illness — like confronting social issues.

When someone becomes a caregiver, his or her life changes significantly. I’m sharing these blogs in honor of all the selfless people who assume the role.

To end on a light note…

  • Meds are often at the forefront of managing illness. Listen to the Drugs Song, shared on Blacktriangle, for a laugh.

Six Until Me will host next week’s Carnival of Compassion. If you’d like to host it on your blog sometime, read the details.
