Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.

I've decided to catalogue my struggles with this disease here, partly as an outlet and partly to see if I can see what lifestyle choices I make that either make the disease worse or better and hope that through this reflection, I can take control of this instead of it controlling me.
