This month we explored our pre- and post-diagnosis selves. The parts we lost, the parts that have been reshaped, and the parts that never would’ve been born had we not encountered the everyday challenges of living with chronic conditions. We heard resounding themes of, "I used to be more social" or "I used to be more spontaneous," "I had bigger plans for my life," and in the same breath "I am now more present, more empathic, and more aware of my inherent self-worth." It is remarkable to witness in our 20 incredible Unfixed subjects how chronic conditions chisel away at their identities while simultaneously deepening and strengthening their characters.
