Tell me if this makes sense . . .

Tell me if this makes sense.

Your life is a story.

Your story has events and characters.

When I had cancer at 18, that was a chapter. Let’s call it chapter 18.

I called myself a cancer survivor for decades.

But that’s like someone asking me during chapter 49 (where I am now), “Tell me about yourself.”

Only to respond, “Chapter 18 explains a lot.”

What about the other chapters?

Why are they even there if I put so much stock in Chapter 18?

Now consider chronic conditions like ADHD.

ADHD is a recurring character. One who shows up in every chapter.

ADHD is a lead character but not the only character.

There’s more to the story than ADHD and there’s much more to you.
