Love in the Time of Chronic Illness

Do you believe you are too broken to be in a loving intimate relationship? Do you live with chronic pain? Or chronic weakness? Or chronic fatigue or any other chronic condition? Have you given up?

In this video from a year ago I outline the 

  • 3 most common fears and discuss how to navigate them fiercely. 

  • 3 pluses that a chronic health condition can provide. 

  • plus some classic poetry to help us know we are not alone in our fears and feelings!

Note that the Wellspring Dispatch that I refer to and describe at the end of this video is currently on hiatus (I think it will be rebooted next week!). The new and improved Wellspring Dispatch will be shorter, bite size bits of beauty and wisdom and will be going out weekly now, for you to relish on Sunday mornings. You can sign up at the form in the side bar here. —->

Also - if you’re not following me on Instagram, I’m doing a literature & poetry love fest in my Instagram stories today featuring quotes about love, passion and intimacy by the likes of Shakespeare, ee Cummings, Edith Wharton, Rilke and more! Come follow me here! I hope to see you over there today!

Now to the video….❤️ and Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
