When dealing with devastating circumstances like chronic illness, there are lessons to be learned from our pain and the struggle searching for answers. Our focus is to find light in our darkness. We long for cures, relief, and reasons why. We search through hopelessness to find hope. My best hope for you is that by baring a little of my soul, you can see that others are also in pain and coping with it is sometimes the most difficult task to face. Although we feel alone, especially in the case of illness, we are never alone in our suffering. Even though at times it has seemed dim, I have learned to find some light through my journey. My sincere hope for you is that you can, too. -Lea Gabel You can almost hear her heart breaking into pieces as author, Lea Gabel, gives an honest account of lessons learned while facing chronic illness, but it is because of her vulnerability that many facing personal challenges will be able to relate.
