Where are we headed on our health journey?
People who are well usually want to stay well. Those who are acutely ill want to get over it. Those who have chronic conditions want to manage as best as possible and have a meaningful life. Those at end-of-life want to do everything possible or want to manage as best as they can and have a meaningful life or both. I have secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. My personal health goals are to progress as slowly as possible, to do nothing that will mess with my pathological optimism, and keep playing my baritone saxophone.
