As someone who lives with a chronic disease but still can't let go of my self-perception that I am essentially healthy, this quote practically jumped off the page and screamed at me; does it resonate with you? And yeah, I'm linking to another blog. Bloggedy-blog-bloggaroo.

For what is health? I say (and of late years I am astonished that the World Health Organization agrees with me) that health is when nothing hurts very much; but the popular idea is of health as a norm to which we must all seek to conform. Not to be healthy, not to be in “top form” is one of the few sins that modern society is willing to recognize and condemn. But are there not as many healths as there are bodies?
