Chronic Illness: A Diabetic's Pilgrimage
Holy Fire Publishing, 2006 - 116 pagini
Victor struggles with Diabetes from youth. The illness begins manageable, becoming irrepressible later in life. He encounters kidney dysfunction, early blindness, and looming foot amputation. The emotions are taxed as a child with peer groups, and when the complications to the disease become overwhelming. Some humor is found in nurses, doctors, and hospitals, although suffering is ongoing. He never surrenders, even at the cost of his job and status, discovering a treasure as the motivator to continue battling diabetes daily. Thr joy is never to be traded, and available to the healthy, but especially to the chronically ill.
